The hot-hatch featured chrome bits and fake exhausts to match the car’s true sporty natures.
Inside the SQ5, things were not very different from the regular Q5. Plenty of standard features were controlled by the easy to use dial.
Audi held its benchmark for the solid interior feel they offered to their customers.
The SQ5 ran on a 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 engine that developed 354 hp that made it a fast car. Sporty and engaging, the SQ5 was equipped with adaptive dampers and a standard all-wheel-drive system.
Compared to the competitors on the market, such as the Jaguar F-Pace or the BMW X4M, the SQ5 might have felt less sporty, however, it was offered for a better price.
The SQ5 was offered in two trim levels, the Premium Plus and the Prestige.
The base trim level came with 20-inch alloys, a tweaked suspension, automatic xenon headlights, LED running lights, automatic wipers, a sunroof and a power lift gate, as well as aluminum roof rails and heated, power-folding mirrors.
The top of the range came with adaptive cruise control, dynamic steering, adaptive headlights, heated and cooled cupholster and rear door sunshades.
The standard safety equipment included antilock brakes, stability and tractio control, front and side airbags, as well as optional rear side airbags.
A blind spot monitor, with front and rear parking sensors, as well as a rearview camera were available with the Technology Package that was optional on the Premium Plus and standard on the Prestige trim level.
