The 255 kW (347 HP) performance comes from the advanced 3.0 V6 TDI engine. An innovation relates to the turbocharger: An electrically-driven compressor, which is supplied with electricity from the 48-volt main on-board network, supports it especially in the lower rpm range. You can feel the advantages when starting and overtaking as the full torque (maximum 700 Newton metres) is already available just above idling speed. A mild hybrid system contributes to the increased efficiency. If you take your foot off the accelerator at a speed of 55 to 160 km/h, the system recovers energy, stores it in a rechargeable battery and releases it, for example, for a noticeably faster engine start. The result of all these innovations are driving values at sports car level. The Audi SQ5 TDI accelerates from 0 to 100 km/hour in 5.1 seconds. Power transmission up to the top speed of 250 km/hour is ensured by the quattro permanent four-wheel drive as well as the quick and comfortable eight-speed tiptronic.
On your marks, get set, go. The 3.0 litre V6 TFSI high-performance engine with 260 kW hits the 100 km/h mark after a mere 5.4 seconds. Accompanied by the striking sound of the S-specific exhaust system with dual-branch twin tailpipe look. Underpinned by the turbocharger for impressive driving dynamics. Thanks to the quattro drive with optional sport differential and S-specific adaptive air suspension, the SQ5 is in top form even on bends and uneven roads. Thus beating personal bests for pure enthusiasm and the sprint home at the end of the day.
In its exterior view, the Audi SQ5 will impress you with its incomparable style: the shoulder line runs in a wavelike pattern from the bonnet over the entire flank to the rear, making a strong statement in terms of dynamics. The single-frame grill especially stands out at the front. The roof spoiler creates a sporting finish. However, the design language is also reflected in detail: The housing of the heated exterior mirror with integrated LED flashing light is impressive with its aluminium look. You can give the Audi SQ5 a very personal touch with your favourite colour.
Powerful as an SUV, agile as a sports car – the Audi SQ5 is a multi-talent. The S sports suspension, which is standard, with shock absorber control is 30 millimetres lower than the Audi Q5 with standard suspension. You can directly influence your driving experience by using the various modes of our Audi drive select dynamic system, which is standard as well. The optional dynamic steering is responsible for increased driving comfort, for example, when driving around corners and changing lanes. Especially when parking you will need less steering effort. The Audi SQ5 comes with 20-inch aluminium wheels, which are standard, with optional 21-inch wheels being available.
Numerous assist systems help to make every trip in the new Audi SQ5 even more comfortable. In slow-moving traffic, adaptive cruise control with Stop&Go function including congestion assist can provide support by automatically keeping the vehicle in lane, braking and accelerating. At speeds of up to 85 km/h Audi pre-sense city scans the road for other vehicles and pedestrians and provides warnings and braking intervention if a potential collision is detected.
The interior space of the Audi SQ5 is decorated in dark tones. Take a seat in the sports seats for driver and front passenger, which are standard. You can set the seat height electrically: the seat longitudinal position, the seat inclination and the backrest inclination. The seat side bolsters improve your support when turning corners. The optional panoramic glass roof ensures a pleasant ambience, especially on longer journeys. Benefit from an interior flooded with light and an improved interior space air conditioning as a result of efficient ventilation.
This could be your control centre in the future: With the multi-function steering wheel, you can operate the Audi virtual cockpit directly in front of you. With the MMI navigation plus with MMI touch, you have another technology whose functions will make your journey easier.
Whether for a holiday with the whole family or to transport your weekly shopping – the Audi SQ5 fulfils many purposes thanks to its abundant loading options. The boot volume is 510 litres, with the backrest folded down, the usable storage space increasing to 1,510 litres.
