Audi SQ5 Plus 2016 review: Torquing Heads

EXPERT RATING
7
Peter Anderson and Nikki Cousins review the Audi SQ5 Plus.

The quick-but-efficient SQ5 has been a resounding success for Audi in Australia, often making up half of all Q5 variants sold.

So when the four-ringed brand unveiled an even hotter SQ5 Plus version, the decision to bring it down under was academic.

However, its extra grunt is matched by a heavier weighbridge figure, and results in an identical 5.1 second 0-100km/h figure to the regular SQ5.

Is it still worth the extra $13,000 over the equally-fast SQ5? Nikki and Peter spent a week behind the wheel to find out.

Plus: Craig Duff puts the SQ5 Plus through a thorough road test.

Also: See how the regular SQ5 stacks up against the Porsche Macan turbo in our head to head comparison.
