Shifting gears is an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Audi says the SQ5's combined fuel economy figure is 8.7L/100km.

The SQ5 comes standard with city AEB which can recognise pedestrians, detect a potential collision at up to 85km/h, and reduce speed by 40km/h in an emergency. There's also  rear cross traffic alert, blind spot warning and an alert which will sound if you're about to open your door on a cyclist or car. Another cool standard safety feature is a rear collision detection system which will flash the hazard lights to alert surrounding traffic to a potential impact.
