2018 Audi SQ5 Profile

Audi's S-line SUVs have always been fine examples of cars that push the performance envelope while delivering on the practicality and luxury you would want in a German make. The company's new 2018 SQ5 takes that one step further with a 3.0 TFSI engine that brings the power while debuting an available adaptive air suspension feature for a versatile ride on or off road. 

The 3.0L TSFI turbo V6 produces 354-hp, which will get you from 0-60 in 5.1 seconds while an eight-speed tiptronic transmission is the perfect complement to the low-end torque of the V6. The car also comes standard with quattro all-wheel-drive and a sport rear differential and dynamic steering can also be added. 

The interior can be spec'd with diamond quilt leather, standard matte aluminum inlay accents or carbon atlas and stainless steel inlays. As for technology, Audi's virtual cockpit option will be available as well as a Bang & Olufsen 3D audio system, which features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
