A Sporty Take on a Crossover: The 2018 Audi SQ5

A Sporty Take on a Crossover: The 2018 Audi SQ5

Crossovers combine the best of an SUV and passenger vehicle, making them perfect for the New Jersey driver, faced with numerous demands and unpredictable driving conditions. These versatile vehicles work for families just as much as they work for working professionals, both of which require a vehicle that emphasizes safety and handles high volume commutes with ease. One of the best crossovers that offer both sport and comfort is the 2018 Audi SQ5. At Benzel-Busch, your New Jersey Audi dealership, we’ve found the new model to be exceptional in every way.

A Powerful Engine to Handle Any NJ Roadway

By design, the second-generation Q5 doesn’t fit into the typical crossover standard. Starting with the engine, the 2018 Audi SQ5 easily leads the pack with a 3.0-liter turbocharged V-6. Its single twin-scroll turbo reduces lag for a quick start. The 354hp is now complemented with a torque increase from 346 lb-ft to 369 lb-ft. What’s even more amazing is that the super-charged engine is actually 31 pounds lighter than the first generation! This lighter, more powerful engine is something car enthusiasts will love.

Sporty Features for Every NJ Driver

This crossover isn’t just for packing up the family for the weekend to head for the Jersey Shore. While it does allow you to handle the daily commutes to work or school, the Audi SQ5 is performance driven. Here are a few of the most exciting features and options:

  • Rear bias allowance for up to 85 percent of the torque to the rear wheels
  • Torque-vectoring differential for rear axles, allowing for almost all torque to be allocated to one wheel
  • Air springs that permit approximately four inches of height adjustability
  • Adaptive dampers are now standard

These specifications make the vehicle a dream to drive on the New Jersey turnpikes and city streets. The smooth drive and ability to hug curves may make you forget you’re not driving a sports car. In fact, almost all Audi SQ5 reviews praise the vehicle for pushing the realm of what a crossover really is.
