Sporty black and grey: the interior
The SQ5 TDI** features a black or dark grey interior with illuminated aluminum door sill trims bearing S logos. The electrically adjustable sport seats featuring embossed S logos are available in a choice of three upholstery variants. A leather/ synthetic leather combination is offered as standard while a material mix of leather and Dinamica with S embossing is available as an option. The new Dinamica microfibre material consists mainly of recycled plastic and replaces Alcantara. Standard you have Fine Nappa leather with a rhombus pattern in magma red.
The luggage compartment has a basic capacity of 520 litres (18.4 cu ft), increasing to 1,520 litres with the rear seat backs folded down. The electrically operated tailgate, a stainless steel loading sill protector as well as aluminum roof rails are fitted as standard. The sport SUV can pull trailers weighing up to 2.4 metric tons (braked, on a 12 percent incline).
Operating system, infotainment and Audi connect
The MMI touch display with a 10.1-inch diagonal, a central element of the MIB 3 modular infotainment platform, serves as a combined input and display device in the centre of the instrument panel. A natural language voice control system and the multifunction steering wheel are available as additional control levels. The 12.3-inch display provides three different graphic layouts: Dynamic, Sport and Classic. Audi offers a head-up display as a further option.
If several drivers use the car, they can store their personal settings in up to six individual profiles.
Convenient and precise: the driver assist systems
The SQ5** incorporates all of the assistance systems from the Q5**. The turn assist, collision avoidance assist, and exit warning help improve safety. The adaptive cruise assist can take over accelerating, decelerating and keeping in lane for drivers over long distances. The predictive efficiency assist helps them maintain a predictive driving style with the goal of lowering fuel consumption.
The updated Audi SQ5 TDI** will be built at the Mexican plant in San José Chiapa and is due to arrive in Ireland in Spring 2021.
