    Audi SQ5

    The Audi SQ5 is a high-performance variant of the Audi Q5 that arrived in Australia in 2009.

    Heavily based on the four-door, family-oriented Audi Q5, the SQ5 features a sports-oriented chassis, drivetrain, and body panels.

    The first SQ5 introduced in 2013 featured a 230kW/650Nm twin-turbocharged V6 diesel engine and eight-speed torque converted automatic that sent power to all four wheels. A petrol-powered version, fitted with the same 260kW/470Nm turbocharged V6 engine as the Audi S4 and S5, later replaced the diesel-powered engine in 2017. Each engine was 3.0-litres big.

    Prices for the Audi SQ5 range from $101,500 to $110,900 for the SQ5 3.0 Tfsi Quattro and SQ5 TDI Quattro Mhev variants, respectively.

    Audi SQ5 Q&As

    Check out real-world situations relating to the Audi SQ5 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

    • Can I put an Amarok wheel on a Q5?

      I understand what you're trying to do, and the Amarok wheel might well fit, but I wouldn't recommend it. The Amarok wheels are 16 x 6.5-inch, the Q5's are 17 x 8-inch. Go to an Audi dealer, or a specialist mechanic and try to find a more suitable steel wheel.

    • Safest mid-size luxury SUV?

      Definitely go for the Volvo. Apart from the safety gear, it's well built, well equipped and drives well.

    • Porsche Macan vs Audi SQ5

      The SQ5 has more punch, that's for sure, but I believe the Macan is a better car and it gets The Tick from me.

    Audi SQ5 Accessories

    The seats are covered with Nappa leather with diamond stitching while synthetic leather extends to the centre console and door armrests, sports padding up front with seat heaters, plus ambient lighting with choice of 30 colours and electric steering column adjustment.

    The sound system is by Bang & Olufsen, which spreads 755W across a total of 19 speakers, while the 8.3-inch MMI multimedia system has now been outdated by the scroll-wheel free and bigger-screened units in more recent Audis and therefore Apple CarPlay still requires a cord like Android Auto. There’s a clever adjustable wireless phone charger located in the centre console.

    The driver is informed by the Audi Virtual Cockpit digital instruments and a head-up display.

    Other features include tinted windows with acoustic glazing, a panoramic glass sunroof, roof rails that detect when the included crossmembers are fitted and adust the stability control to compensate for a roof load, and metallic paint.
