The souped-up version of Audi's compact Q5 crossover, the SQ5 carries some serious performance hardware to go with its family-friendly interior. Buyers who can't decide between thrills and versatility won't have to with the SQ5.

Choosing Your Audi SQ5
The centerpiece of the SQ5 is its supercharged 3-liter V6, which lays down 354 horsepower and 346 pound-feet of torque. To handle all that thrust, you get a sport-tuned suspension, performance brakes, selectable driving modes, and summer performance tires on 20-inch wheels. An eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive complete the mechanical setup.
The SQ5 wears special body trim to differentiate it from the standard-issue Q5. Cargo space, however, is identical. You you get 29.1 cubic feet of it behind the rear seat and 57.3 cubic feet with it folded. This is typical for a small luxury crossover.
The SQ5 skips Audi's usual base trim, so it's available in Premium Plus and Prestige only:
Both models can get a Luxury package featuring an extended leather interior and ventilated front seats. The available Black Optic package adds gloss-black exterior trim and a matte-black rear spoiler.
Individual options include 21-inch wheels, rear side airbags, red-painted brake calipers, and diamond-stitched Nappa leather upholstery.
The Premium Plus with the Technology package added makes the most sense from a value standpoint. Upgrading to the Prestige is only necessary if you can't live without the Driver Assist features.
