What's New in the 2019 Audi SQ5?

The SQ5 has a new entry-level trim: Premium. This now makes three trim levels, with equipment being redistributed between them. The top Prestige trim now receives self-steering Park Assist as standard. Audi has also changed its horsepower ratings, so the 2019 SQ5 enjoys 349 hp, whereas the 2018 version had 354. No difference to the engine, though, and torque stays the same. See the 2019 Audi SQ5 models for sale near you

Which SQ5 is the Best?

Premium Plus trim gains some standard equipment during this 2019 shakeup, so it starts to look even more attractive. But someone with the funds for that could probably stretch another few grand and get the Prestige with the extra driver aids. If 21-in wheels are highly desired, at least test drive that setup before taking the plunge, because they will affect ride quality. Find an Audi SQ5 for sale

How Much Does a 2019 Audi SQ5 Cost?

The 5-seater 2019 Audi SQ5 luxury/performance compact crossover comes in Premium, Premium Plus and Prestige trim levels.

The Premium ($53,395) has 20-in alloy wheels, an adaptive sport suspension, full LED exterior lighting, aluminum roof rails, keyless entry and ignition, heated side mirrors, a tilt-and-telescopic and flat-bottomed steering wheel, Drive Select (providing adjustment for steering, transmission and throttle responses), a self-dimming rearview mirror with a digital compass, ambient LED cabin lighting, tri-zone automatic climate control, heated 4-way power-adjustable front sport seats, leather and Alcantara (synthetic suede) seating surfaces, slide/recline/split/fold (40/20/40) rear seats, an MMI infotainment system with a 7-in display, Bluetooth phone connectivity and music streaming, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, forward-collision mitigation, a garage door opener and a powered lift gate.

A Convenience package brings blind spot monitoring, rear-collision mitigation, self-dimming side mirrors, memory settings for the driver's seat, an advanced key for remote starts and lift gate opening, plus satellite radio.

The Premium Plus ($57,795) adds a panoramic sunroof, advanced key, an eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat, navigation, touchpad with handwriting recognition, Wi-Fi, a Virtual Cockpit (12.3-in configurable driver information display, including a Sport mode), wireless charging, a phone signal booster, blind spot monitoring, rear parking sensors, rear-collision mitigation, voice control, a 10-speaker, 180-watt audio setup, a CD/MP3 player, two USB ports, two SD card slots and AM/FM/HD/satellite radio.

The Prestige ($63,095) adds a head-up display, a top-view camera system, adaptive cruise control with Traffic Jam Assist (a partially autonomous system that steers and brakes in stop-and-go conditions between standstill and 40 mph), active lane-keeping assist, power-adjustable steering column, heated, self-dimming, power-folding mirrors with memory, automatic high beams, self-parking system, road sign recognition and a Bang & Olufsen 19-speaker, 755-watt audio upgrade.

Premium Plus and Prestige trims are eligible for an S Sport package that includes a sport rear differential and a sport-tuned adaptive air suspension.

2019 Audi SQ5 vs the competition

2019 BMW X3 M40i -- For practicality and driving thrills, this 355-hp machine is a must-consider. If a little more individuality and sleekness is desired, check out the new-for-2019 X4 M40i.

2019 Mercedes-Benz AMG GLC 43 -- Available as a regular crossover or in fastback "coupe" style, the GLC 43 enjoys 362 hp.

2019 Jaguar F-Pace S -- Has a sublime suspension, a great supercharged 3.0-liter V6 engine making 380 hp, and plenty of space.

2019 Porsche Macan S -- This 348-hp Porsche is not quite as roomy as the SQ5 (the roof slopes more), but it's a thrill to drive and the interior is beautiful.

Used BMW X5 M -- A monster of a machine for new SQ5 money. Have a look at BMW's certified pre-owned (CPO) program.
