Audi SQ5 2017 review: snapshot

EXPERT RATING
8.5
The SQ5 sits at the top of the Q5 range, with a list price of $99,611.

The SQ5 sits at the top of the Q5 range, with a list price of $99,611. For now, it's powered exclusively by a 260kW/500Nm 3.0-litre turbo-petrol V6, although a diesel V6 is expected soon.

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

Standard features include an 8.3-inch screen with sat nav and a reversing camera, 12.3-inch ‘virtual Cockpit' instrument display, DVD player and 10-speaker stereo, front and rear parking sensors, auto parking, three-zone climate control, adaptive LED headlights, auto tailgate, leather seats, heated and power front seats, aluminium roof rails, ambient interior lighting, digital radio, tinted rear glass, adaptive dampers and 21-inch alloy wheels.

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.
