Default 2013+ front end swap onto 2012

Have a 2012 Q5 premium plus that was involved in a front end accident. Basically needs most front end parts replaced. Was wondering if its possible to swap parts from a 2013 and newer onto my 2012? From what I can tell the biggest change looks to be the headlights... I would assume if its the same 2.0T engine the entire radiator core support would fit right into mine. Just looking for some advice with this. Thanks!

I believe starting with MY 2013, the power steering went from hydraulic to electric steering. So that is probably the big change.
