2020 Audi SQ5 Overview

The Audi SQ5, a performance compact crossover, was last redesigned in 2018. For 2020, it gets no changes of note. It competes primarily with the BMW X3 M40i, Jaguar F-PACE S, Mercedes-AMG GLC 43, and Porsche Macan S.

The SQ5 features a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 that makes 349 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. It pairs with a slick-shifting 8-speed automatic transmission and standard Quattro all-wheel drive (AWD). The system is potent enough to hit 60 mph in 5.1 seconds. It also comes with a sport-tuned suspension and beefy performance brakes. The SQ5 returns 19 mpg city, 24 highway, and 21 combined with premium gas.

Last year's Premium, Premium Plus, and Prestige trims all return for 2020. The Premium trim comes with LED exterior lights, 20-inch wheels, a 7.0-inch infotainment display, Bluetooth, leather-and-Alcantara seating, 12-way power seats, a 180-watt sound system, and keyless access and start. To this, the Premium Plus trim tacks on navigation, an LCD instrument cluster, a panoramic sunroof, wireless phone charging, and a wireless phone-signal booster. Finally, the Prestige includes a power-adjustable steering column, a Bang & Olufsen audio system, and a head-up display (HUD). With the rear seats up, 25.1 cubic feet of cargo space is available. With the seats folded, that expands to 53.1 cubic feet.

Your basic SQ5 includes a reversing camera, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, and forward-collision warning. Blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic detection, vehicle-exit assist, front and rear parking sensors, adaptive cruise control with traffic-jam assist, active lane assist, and a top-view 360-degree camera are extra-cost options. While the SQ5 hasn't been crash-tested, the regular Q5, which is related, scored excellently when evaluated for crash safety by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gave the Q5 a 5-star overall rating.

The SQ5 offers plenty of technology and style, making it a worthy option.
