Facts and figures

Power, confidently transferred to the road

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.

Performance brought to life

The design of the Audi SQ5 impressively reflects the vehicle’s sporty dynamics and confident performance. The design of the sill trims creates a visual lightness and signals impressive ground clearance. Striking bumpers integrate heavily contoured air inlets with aluminium frames at the front and a diffuser with surrounding chrome trim at the rear. Twin oval tailpipe trims in chrome ensure a sporty finish. The Audi Singleframe in honeycomb look with aluminium inlays in the honeycomb grille lends the front a self-assured character.

Radiant all round

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 scenarios. When purchasing a vehicle, customers have a choice of three optional tail light signature designs with which to add a personal touch. In addition, depending on driving mode, the character of the tail light signature is adapted automatically when in use. The optional digital OLED rear lights are equipped with proximity detection³: when the vehicle is stationary and another vehicle or road user approaching from behind comes within 2 metres, all OLED segments are automatically activated to create a larger visible area.

Living out intense sportiness

As you and your passengers get into the vehicle, you are greeted by illuminated door sill trims with aluminium inlays, front bearing the S logos. 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 matt brushed aluminium and contrasting stitching on the leather steering wheel and the sport seats convey a dynamically elegant atmosphere.
