Choosing a crossover instead of a sedan doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice performance thrills, and the 2017 Audi SQ5 is proof. This small premium crossover tempts buyers with its sporty driving dynamics and keen attention to luxury.
The 2017 Audi SQ5 is a compact luxury crossover SUV that seats five passengers, and it’s the high-performance variant of Audi’s Q5. All models come standard with all-wheel drive, and the SQ5 is sold in Premium Plus and Prestige trims.
For 2017, the SQ5’s Prestige trim adds dynamic steering and adaptive cruise control as standard equipment. Also, a new Black Optic Plus package debuts, and it includes black exterior accents and 20- or 21-inch black wheels.
The SQ5 has sheet metal that reflects the refinement of the brand. The crossover bears an air of polished German competence, with sculpted lines and low-key elegance. In front, rectangular headlights peer from the fringes of a towering grille, and the SQ5 connects with the pavement via standard 20-inch alloy wheels.
Base Premium Plus models are equipped with roof rails, a panoramic sunroof, rain-sensing windshield wipers, automatic xenon headlights, heated power-folding side mirrors with auto-dimming capability, a power tailgate and rear privacy glass. Available features include 21-inch wheels, a gloss-black grille, black side mirror caps and a black roof spoiler.
The prevailing design motif within the 2017 Audi SQ5’s cabin is one of tasteful opulence. The crossover’s interior has a clean and modern look all throughout, and both rows offer enough room to comfortably seat adults. The SQ5 provides 29.1 cubic feet of cargo capacity behind the rear seats, and this figure swells to 57.2 cubic feet when the rear seats are folded.
Base models feature power-adjustable front seats, a tilt-and-telescoping steering column, a flat-bottom steering wheel, tri-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery with simulated suede accents and a 40/20/40-split folding rear seat that slides and reclines. Available amenities include heated and cooled cupholders, diamond-stitched leather upholstery and sunshades for the rear doors.
SQ5 drivers enjoy outstanding acceleration and keen handling. The crossover is motivated by a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 good for 354 horsepower and 346 pound-feet of torque, and this engine has an EPA rating of 17/24 mpg city/highway. An eight-speed automatic transmission sends power to all four wheels.
With the SQ5, you get to enjoy a rich assortment of technology features. The base Premium Plus model comes standard with Bluetooth phone connectivity, satellite radio, an SD card slot with 32GB capacity, a 10-speaker sound system, a 6.5-inch display screen and keyless entry and ignition. Upgrades include Bluetooth music streaming, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot warning, a rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors, navigation, a 7-inch display, a Wi-Fi hotspot, HD Radio, voice recognition and a premium 14-speaker Bang & Olufsen stereo.
