Exterior and Performance

Twin-scroll turbochargers dominate the mechanics inside the 2018 Audi SQ5's 3.0 V6 engine. Carrying the TFSI label, this powertrain produces up to 354 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. Audi's patented Valvelift System controls the motion of the intake and exhaust strokes. It takes only 5.1 seconds for this sporty crossover SUV to reach a speed of 60 MPH from rest. The eight-speed gearbox of the Tiptronic automatic transmission system works smoothly with the turbo engine. Torque is instantly sent to the Quattro AWD system that easily handles snow, rocks, mud and other slippery surfaces. With seven options to choose from in the Audi Drive Select, you'll easily optimize the performance of this versatile vehicle. Measuring 13.8 inches, the Audi SQ5's front ventilated disc brakes generate reliable stopping power on any road. Also having a ventilated design, the rear disc brakes measure 13.0 inches. A five-link suspension system is installed in the front and rear of the chassis. The advanced suspension system is sophisticated enough to adapt to road conditions. For example, the stiffness of the damping components vary based on the terrain and ground clearance.
