2014 Audi SQ5 Overview
What's New for 2014
While not strictly a brand-new model, since the SQ5 has been previously sold in Europe, it is new to the U.S. market for 2014.
Choosing Your Audi SQ5
All SQ5s come equipped with the same engine, a 3-liter supercharged V6 that produces 354 horsepower and 346 pound-feet of torque, along with an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.
Two trim levels separate luxurious from more luxurious. Which of the two trims you choose will depend on which high-end features you consider essential.
- Premium Plus: The lower of the two trims, the Premium Plus still includes a full complement of standard luxury-level features such as leather and Alcantara sport seats and driver-customizable settings for steering and throttle response. However, any electronics beyond a basic sound system and Bluetooth phone connectivity are only available through additional package options. The MMI Navigation Plus package includes not only the navigation system but also HD radio, a DVD player, and a parking assist system with a rearview camera plus front and rear sensors. A Bang & Olufsen sound system and DVD entertainment system are also available as stand-alone options.
- Prestige: The Prestige trim provides as standard all of those electronics available only as options at the Premium Plus level, except the DVD rear-seat entertainment system which is still available as an option only. It also adds Audi Connect providing wireless internet access, adaptive headlights and Audi’s nifty heated and cooled cup holder as standard equipment.
Seating options are the same for both trims with two color choices for the standard leather/Alcantara combination seats and four choices for the available Nappa leather seats and armrests.
The real difference between the two trims is in the electronic components. If you don’t need the wireless internet connectivity available only on the Prestige trim, you might save some money by adding the navigation system and Bang & Olufsen sound system as options at the Premium Plus level.
