The Audi SQ5 is the high-performance version of the brand’s Q5 compact luxury crossover; the Sportback designation denotes a sleeker, coupe-like alternative body style to the standard model’s more practical design. Audi introduced the SQ5 Sportback last year.
What’s New/Key Changes From Last Year
For 2022, the SQ5 Sportback’s base model adds a hands-free power tailgate, ambient lighting with customizable colours, and Amazon Alexa functionality to its list of standard features. The uplevel trim package gains wireless phone charging and a suite of advanced driver safety assists as standard.
Audi offers the SQ5 Sportback in Progressiv and Technik trim levels. Both are powered by a 3.0L turbo V6 engine, an eight-speed transmission, and all-wheel drive.
Progressiv trim’s kit includes an adaptive suspension, LED head- and taillights, 21-inch wheels, power-folding side mirrors, heated front seats/steering wheel, Nappa leather, hands-free tailgate, and three-zone A/C. This trim also gets an auto-dimming mirror, garage door remote, a panoramic roof, navigation, a 10.1-inch infotainment display, 10-speaker audio, and digital gauges.
The SQ5’s safety kit comprises rain-sensing wipers, front and rear parking sensors, automatic high beams, city-speed collision mitigation, lane departure warning, rear cross-traffic alert, blind spot monitoring, and exit warning.
Technik trim adds upgraded LED headlights with washers, heated rear seats, electric steering wheel adjustments, wireless phone charging, an upgraded stereo, adaptive cruise, all-speed forward collision avoidance, traffic congestion/road sign assist, and active lane assist.
To Progressiv, you can also add the same advanced driver assists that are standard in Technik.
Both trims offer a comfort interior pack of ventilated front seats and rear door sunshades, and a dynamic bundle of air suspension and a sport differential.
Audi’s fuel consumption estimates are 12.5/9.7 L/100 km (city/highway).
