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
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
