Overview

The previous generation Audi Q5 made due with 2.0L, 220 horsepower turbocharged 4-cylinder as its base engine. It provided great fuel economy, thanks to being smaller than most of the 6-cylinder power plants normally used in this class. For this year however, Audi have redeveloped that 2.0L engine to make significantly more powerful, now producing 252 horsepower. That's enough to compete on nearly equal footing with most of the 6-cylinder engines offered in this class while still maintaining decent fuel economy. Of course, some people just like the more refined power delivery that comes with those extra cylinders, so Audi also offers the SQ5 with a 3.0L Turbocharged V6, making 354 horsepower. The more powerful SQ5 is capable of reaching 60 mph in a claimed 5.1 seconds. All-wheel drive is standard across the entire line.

Audi's virtual cockpit technology works by among other things, projecting navigation information as the background of the instrument display, between and behind the speedometer and tachometer, turning the whole instrument display into a place where drivers can get all the information they need without having to look too far away from the road.
2018,
2018,The SQ5 comes in just two trims, Premium Plus and Prestige. Standard Premium Plus comes with Leather/Alcantara seating surfaces, 20-inch wheels, aluminum roof rails, a power tailgate, 3-zone climate control and heated front seats.
