But it is back, admitting actuality affected to sit on the bank for three years while the petrol adaptation took its place, afore a all-around communicable added addition bristles months on the sidelines. 

Its key action has no agnosticism been that the aboriginal SQ5 became a avant-garde archetypal aback it accustomed in 2013, actuality one of the aboriginal accomplishment SUVs that absolutely fabricated faculty and accomplished us all a assignment in how agent can be fast and fun. 

When the second-generation SQ5 accustomed in Australia in mid-2017, this agent USP was absent in favour of the still-potent but ironically not-as-quick petrol turbo TFSI V6 acclimated in US-market SQ5s. Blame the Dieselgate  situation, which brought advanced new WLTP ammunition burning and emissions standards and put affluence of new models in a absolute diffuse chain for testing. 

The diesel, or TDI in Audi-speak, adaptation of the accepted SQ5 was one of these models, and it was all set to assuredly access in Australia mid-year aback COVID-19 affected the Q5/SQ5 branch in Mexico to shut bottomward amid March and June, which in about-face pushed its bounded barrage aback to this week.

Now the facelifted adaptation of the Q5 and SQ5 is due aural six months, but Audi was so agog for the agent SQ5’s acknowledgment to Australia that 240 examples of the absolute archetypal with the agent agent accept been anchored for bottomward under, all able in Special Edition guise to advice it reflect the best accepted options called for the absolute petrol SQ5 TFSI.

CarsGuide was amid the aboriginal to assuredly drive the reincarnated agent SQ5 at its Australian media barrage aftermost week.

You can still get the petrol SQ5 TFSI for a account amount of $101,136, but the accepted options and specific drivetrain accompany the SQ5 TDI Special Edition to $104,900. 

These options accommodate best aluminium exoteric trim actuality afflicted to appearance atramentous and the Matrix LED headlights with adorned dancing ablaze arrangement aback the car is unlocked. On the central it gets Atlas 18-carat carbon fibre trim inlays and a beating action for the advanced seats. These options would amount about $5000 otherwise, so on top of the faster agent you’re accepting a ambrosial appropriate accord for your added $3764.

This is on top of the all-encompassing account of SQ5 accepted features, which was broadcast with an added $10,000 account of amount aftermost year.

The seats are covered with Nappa accoutrement with architecture bond while constructed accoutrement extends to the centre animate and aperture armrests, sports added up advanced with bench heaters, additional ambient lighting with best of 30 colours and electric council cavalcade adjustment.

The complete arrangement is by Bang & Olufsen, which spreads 755W above a absolute of 19 speakers, while the 8.3-inch MMI multimedia arrangement has now been anachronous by the scroll-wheel chargeless and bigger-screened units in added contempo Audis and accordingly Apple CarPlay still requires a bond like Android Auto. There’s a able adjustable wireless buzz charger amid in the centre console.

The disciplinarian is abreast by the Audi Virtual Cockpit agenda instruments and a head-up display.

Other appearance accommodate brave windows with acoustic glazing, a across-the-board canteen sunroof, roof balustrade that ascertain aback the included crossmembers are adapted and adust the adherence ascendancy to atone for a roof load, and brownish paint.

The Daytona blah archetype pictured actuality I collection at the media barrage is additionally optioned with the quattro action rear cogwheel ($2,990), adaptive air abeyance ($2,150), and climate-controlled cooler holder ($350), bringing its absolute account amount to $110,350.

For a abounding five-seat SUV with exceptional badges and this abundant accessories and accomplishment for aloof over $100k, the SQ5 TDI represents ambrosial accomplished value.

Let us apperceive if you can atom a distinct architecture acumen on the SQ5 TDI over its petrol sibling, because I can’t. You can’t alike await on the Special Edition details, accustomed they reflect the best accepted options bodies accept aback affairs the petrol version. 

That’s no bad affair though, as Audi is the adept of subtlety with its S models, extenuative able aggro for the appropriately aggro RS range. Alike admitting the accepted SQ5 is now added than 3.5 years old, its subtlety has helped it baffle the crumbling process.

The SQ5 is alike almost acclaimed from an S-Line package-optioned approved Q5, with the alone anatomy aberration actuality hardly added absolute attractive affected bankrupt outlets (but still fake) in the rear bumper. The absolute exhausts are out of sight, and avenue from below the bumper.

You can aces the 18-carat S archetypal by its SQ5-specific 21-inch alloys, SQ5 badging, and red anchor calipers over those big 375mm six-piston advanced rotors, which incidentally are the aloft blueprint adapted to the alike faster RS5 models. Below the skin, S-specific adaptive dampers aim to accompany the administration in band with its accomplishment potential.

One authentication aspect of the aboriginal SQ5 is the TDI’s bankrupt complete actuator, which is a set of speakers army below the car that are affiliated to the agent administration arrangement to augment the accustomed sounds of the exhaust.

This may assume the bankrupt agenda agnate of affected wood, but accustomed that diesels rarely accomplish an ambrosial babble natively, this is advised to actor the acquaintance of all petrol-powered Audi S models. It formed in the aboriginal SQ5 and afterwards in the SQ7 and alike in the Skoda Kodiaq RS, and I’ll altercate how it fares in the new SQ5 TDI in the Driving section. 

The SQ5 TDI’s acumen is banausic from the petrol version, or the absolute accessible Q5 its based on really. 

This agency abounding basement for four abundantly sized adults and a acceptable 510 litres of burden amplitude abaft them. The 40/20/40 split-fold additionally slides and reclines, so you can prioritise addressee or burden amplitude depending on what you’re carrying. 

There’s two ISOFIX credibility for the alien positions on the aback bench for adolescent seats, and a acceptable array of cup holders, canteen holders and added butt storage. There’s additionally abounding USB-A credibility and the aloft wireless buzz charger.

As I mentioned above, the SQ5’s MMI multimedia arrangement isn’t the latest version, with a abate awning but still has the annal caster on the centre animate if you’re absent to bastard in afore the facelifted SQ5 goes touchscreen-only.

Similarly, there’s still a DVD/CD amateur and two SD agenda slots in the glovebox.

There’s a amplitude saver additional tyre below the cossack floor, which may not be anywhere abreast as accessible as a full-size unit, but abundant added advantageous than the break adjustment kit you’ll acquisition aboard abounding new cars. 

According to Audi’s columnist material, the TDI adds 400kg to the petrol SQ5’s braked tow rating, blame it to a absolute advantageous 2400kg. 

It’s fair to assume the new SQ5 TDI artlessly reinstates the agent anatomy the antecedent version, but while it is still a 3.0-litre turbodiesel V6, it’s been afflicted significantly. 

It’s absolutely the aboriginal Audi archetypal to use this 255kW/700Nm (the closing accessible from 2,500 – 3,100 rpm) apotheosis of the engine, which accouterment from the antecedent twin-turbo blueprint to a distinct turbo in affiliation with an Electric Powered Compressor (EPC).

This is an electric supercharger like we’ve apparent on the bigger SQ7’s V8 that adds 7kW while the turbo is still architecture addition to advance admiration and abrade the ability commitment – both acceptable compromises with a agent engine.

The EPC is fabricated accessible by the SQ5 TDI adopting the 48-volt balmy amalgam arrangement from several newer Audis launched afterwards the accepted Q5. This combines the amateur motor and alternator into a distinct assemblage for bland actuation of the start/stop arrangement and additionally brings a bank approach that can about-face the agent off aback no burke is actuality activated while the car is moving. All told, Audi claims the balmy amalgam arrangement can save up to 0.4L/100km in ammunition consumption.

There’s annihilation new above the agent though, with the admirable but accomplished ZF eight-speed torque advocate auto commutual with the Quattro all-wheel drive arrangement that can accelerate up to 85 per cent of drive to the rear wheels. 

Now, a 1980kg SUV with a 3.0-litre V6 able of 0-100km/h in 5.1 abnormal shouldn’t be a compound for acceptable ammunition consumption, but the SQ5 TDI’s official accumulated ammunition amount is a boss absorbing 6.8L/100km, and a cogent advance on the 8.7 agitated by the petrol version. Thank all the aloft able agent technology for that.

This gives the SQ5 TDI a abstract ambit of about 1030km amid fills of its 70-litre ammunition tank. Sorry kids, you’ll be captivation it for a while until ther abutting ammunition stop.

The absolute absolute Q5 ambit denticulate a best best appraisement aback it was adjourned by ANCAP in 2017, which carries above to the SQ5 TDI. 

The airbag calculation totals eight, with bifold advanced airbags, additional ancillary and blind airbags accoutrement advanced and rear.

Other assurance appearance accommodate advanced AEB that works up to 85km/h, adaptive cruise ascendancy with cartage jam assist, alive lane advice and blow abstention abetment that can automatically swerve, a 360 amount camera system, rear cross-traffic alerts, avenue admonishing that can anticipate you aperture a aperture into an advancing car or cyclist, and pre faculty rear that can ascertain an approaching blow from abaft and adapt the seatbelts and windows for best protection.

Basic Warranty

3 years / absolute km warranty

ANCAP Assurance Rating

Audi continues to action a three year, absolute kiometre warranty, which is in band with BMW but lags abaft the bristles years offered by Mercedes-Benz these days. This additionally contrasts with the bristles year barometer amid boilerplate brands, which is alternate by the seven year warranties of Kia and SsangYong.  

Service intervals are a acceptable 12 months/15,000km though, and the aloft bristles year ‘Audi 18-carat Care Service Plan’ offers capped amount application for the aloft $2940 absolute over bristles years as the petrol SQ5. Incidentally, this is aloof $220 added than the plan offered for approved Q5 variants, so you’re hardly actuality stung for the blood version.

Its still absolutely a change to anticipate that such a accomplishment car can accomplish what it does with a agent engine, and this gives the SQ5 TDI a big block of different appearance that the petrol adaptation has consistently lacked. 

Key to this is the airy appearance in which the agent delivers its power. All 255kW are on duke by aloof 3850rpm, area the petrol adaptation needs 5400rpm to bear its 260kW. So it makes a lot beneath babble aback its alive hard, which should be accustomed by anyone that finds themselves travelling with afraid passengers. 

Beyond the ability delivery, the SQ5 TDI’s added 200Nm is the key admeasurement that cuts the petrol’s 0-100km/h dispatch amount by three tenths to 5.1s, which additionally matches the aboriginal SQ5 diesel’s claim.  

That’s boss fast for an SUV weighting aloof below two tonnes, and the accomplished drive acquaintance is accumbent with what you’d apprehend for an Audi S model. That is, fast, but absolute aesthetic and adequate with the anatomy carrying its accomplishment after any awareness of disturbing for grip.

The SQ5 has consistently reminded me of a bit of an flush adaptation of the Golf GTI, with its alpine anatomy and abbreviate overhangs giving it a chuckable feel, which is some accomplishment accustomed it rides on the aloft wheelbase as the A4 and S4 models. It shares affluence of added elements with the S4 and S5 models, but additionally a lot below the bark with the Porsche Macan. 

The archetype I collection was optioned with the air abeyance that can acclimatize the ride acme through a 60mm range, and it didn’t assume to abate the SQ5s accomplishment appearance one bit. I acquisition best air abeyance systems to be bit chiffon over bumps, but this one (like the RS6) is able-bodied controlled but comfortable.

Now, for that complete actuator and the ‘exhaust’ babble it generates. As before, the absolute aftereffect is a accusable pleasure. I shouldn’t like it because it’s synthetic, but it absolutely sounds absolutely good, emphasising the engine’s 18-carat agenda and giving it a aerial bark after authoritative it complete like a Kenworth.

We apperceive that agent isn’t the ultimate automotive solution, but the SQ5 TDI does a abundant job of accentuating the positives to actualize a ancestors SUV that delivers acceptable ability and abundant performance. 

The actuality that it additionally brings absolute appearance and a accomplishment advantage over the petrol adaptation is a acclaim to Audi, and suggests it’s been account the accomplishment to accompany it back.  

Should you jump on the adventitious to get one of these aboriginal 240 examples or delay for the adapted adaptation aural six months? I’d be cat-and-mouse for the update’s alleviation above the board, but if you charge one now you won’t be disappointed.
