The 3.0-litre V6 TFSI engine with 260kW and the electric compressor accelerate the Audi SQ5 from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.4 seconds and swiftly on to its electronically regulated top speed of 250 km/h. The power transmission takes place through fast and convenient gear changes via the 8-speed tiptronic. The standard quattro permanent all-wheel drive with self-locking centre differential distributes power variably between the front and rear axles. The basic distribution is 40 : 60. However, up to 70% can be directed to the front or up to 85% to the rear to facilitate even more traction. This lets the Audi SQ5 confidently master a wide range of difficult conditions.
The design of the new Audi SQ5 impressively reflects the vehicle’s sporty dynamics and confident performance. The new design of the sill trims creates a visual lightness and signals impressive ground clearance.
Grouping the OLEDs into small, individually controllable segments with a three-dimensional layout produces an impressive light arrangement, which makes it possible to create new lighting technologies. Depending on driving mode, the character of the tail light signature is adapted automatically when in use. The digital OLED rear lights are equipped with proximity detection: When the vehicle is stationary and another vehicle or road user approaching from behind comes within two metres, all OLED segments are automatically activated to create a larger visible area.
Features that are easy to operate mean you can confidently master everyday challenges. The rear seat backrest, which comprises three segments, can be moved fore and aft as required and its angle adjusted. In combination with the optional convenience key with sensor-controlled release of the luggage compartment lid, a foot gesture (kicking motion) at the rear of the vehicle is all that is required to unlock, open and close the luggage compartment lid. In addition, manually lowering the vehicle height via the optional adaptive air suspension makes loading easier.
When you get in, you and your passengers are greeted by illuminated door sill trims bearing the exclusive S logo. In the interior, you can expect a generous space concept with plenty of room for five people including ample headroom and legroom. Standard inlays in brushed aluminium, contrasting stitching on the leather steering wheel and the sport seats convey a dynamically elegant atmosphere. The sport seats are covered in Fine Nappa leather with rhombus pattern and are also optionally available with a pneumatic massage function. The shift paddles on the steering wheel are in aluminium look and the pedals and footrests feature stainless steel plating for added sportiness.
