SQ5: Slightly Quicker
As much as we like the Q5 2.0 TFSI, there is a faster option in the shape of the $ 99,611 SQ5. To that, you’ll need to add $ 2150 worth of air suspension in order for it to ride acceptably on the standard 21-inch wheels. The SQ5 gets permanent all-wheel drive and a 3.0 V6 petrol engine under the bonnet, in this instance good for 260kw/500nm, translating to 100km/ h in 5.4s, so it’s slower and thirstier than the old diesel SQ5. Couple that with a bit of a meek personality and the SQ5 feels like it could use a bit more mongrel about it.
