The SQ5 TDI sprints from zero tto 100km/h in 5.1 seconds and ttop speed is anyone’s guess, bbut fast. On the other side of tthe ledger is fuel consumption rarated at a mere 7.2 litres/100km. InInnovative thermal management, the starstart-stop system and the regulated oiloi pump all contribute to this figurefigure. A fasfast and smooth-shifting eightspeed tiptronic and quattro permanent allwheel drive with torque vectoring transfer the power of the V6 diesel to the road.
Electromechanical power steering in the SQ5 TDI is sensitive and highly efficient. The sport suspension lowers the vehicle body by 30mm. The standard 20-inch wheels feature a five parallel-spoke design and are fitted with 255/45 tyres. Audi offers optional wheels measuring 21 inches in diameter.
The black brake calipers on the front axle sport S badges.
The optional Audi drive-select system can be expanded upon request to include the dynamic-steering system with its steplessly variable steering ratio.
The most eye-catching design cues are the platinum grey single-frame grille with its galvanised double bars in an aluminium-look finish, the roof spoiler and the modified bumpers.
The high-gloss package and the aluminium-look exterior mirrors accentuate the area around the windows.
The body includes a high proportion of ultra-high-strength steels, making it very light, safe and rigid.
As is typical for an S model, the interior has black trim and exudes a sporty elegance.
Luggage capacity is as much as 1560 litres, making the SQ5 TDI the ideal car for sporty and active customers.
It is also an unusually powerful towing vehicle, with a rated towing capacity of up to 2.4 tonnes.
