2018 Audi SQ5 quattro®
Track and feel.
The Audi SQ5 features standard quattro® all-wheel drive. The same principle has helped Audi win races all over the world, but it’s not just a performance-enhancing technology.
Standard quattro® all-wheel drive
Under most conditions, the quattro® all-wheel drive system’s torque distribution ratio is 40:60 front-to-rear for dynamic handling and performance. A sophisticated self-locking center differential can send as much as 70 percent of power to the front wheels or 85 percent to the rear wheels to help maintain control and optimize performance.
Available S sport package
Elevating your Audi SQ5 to the next level, the available S sport package gives you access to Sport adaptive air suspension with the ability to raise or lower the chassis via Audi drive select. A quattro® sport rear differential helps enhance agility by actively splitting torque between the rear wheels to help minimize understeer. Red brake calipers finish the vehicle with a subtle performance look, even when it is standing still.
