Engines

3.0 TDI Quattro Tip Auto
This is a tremendous engine. With 282bhp, it simply romps off down the road the minute you put your foot down. But there’s more to it than just straight-line pace, because it’s effortlessly quick in normal, everyday driving. That’s down to the enormous shove it generates from low revs, coupled with the responsive eight-speed automatic gearbox. The only downside is that it will cost you more to buy and run than the 2.0 TDI 190.
Quattro Tip Auto
This turbocharged V6 engine delivers seriously eye-widening acceleration. It also works well with the SQ5&#39;s standard eight-speed automatic gearbox.
Our pick
2.0 TDI Quattro S Tronic
While not super-quick in terms of outright pace, this 187bhp diesel is flexible enough to deliver strong real-world pace. That means there’s no need to rev it hard to keep up with traffic. It’s also very smooth compared with equivalent rivals&#39; 2.0-litre diesel engines and in real-world driving can return 41.0mpg.
2.0T FSI Quattro S Tronic
For a relatively small engine in a biggish car, this 2.0-litre petrol is pretty pokey. That’s down to a turbocharger that boosts power to a healthy 249bhp and a usable spread of shove throughout the rev range. Like the 2.0 TDI 190 diesel, this engine has a standard seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox, which changes smoothly through the gears but can be a little jerky at parking speeds.
