The all-new model features V6 TDI power for the first time in the UK, delivering 354PS and a peak 500Nm of torque. This new engine weight just 172kg, 14kg less than the previous supercharged engine. A fast and smooth shifting eight-speed tiptronic transmission transmits the power in the new Audi SQ5 with lower gears that feature short ratios and upper gears that are long to reduce revs and fuel consumption. The quattro permanent all-wheel drive provides balanced handling on all terrain.
The new SQ5 also features driver assistance systems like those found in the broad, high-tech portfolio of the Audi Q5. The systems include predictive efficiency assistance which provides tips to save the driver fuel. Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) including traffic jam assist can handle some of the steering work in slow-moving traffic while Audi pre sense city, which features as standard, can warn the driver about pedestrians and vehicles and initiate automatic braking within system limits.
As standard, the SQ5 is fitted with the top of the range MMI navigation plus infotainment system with MMI all-in-touch and an 8.3 inch display. This system can recognise handwritten input as well as familiar gestures. One highlight is the optional Audi virtual cockpit which displays all key information in razor-sharp graphics on a 12.3 inch monitor.
