New Audi SQ5 (2024) is now captured as Erlkönig for the first time

( – Audi is currently working on a new version of the Q5. And the SQ5 variant (buy a used Audi SQ5 now) is not to be missed. New spy shots now show the prototype on test for the first time and the company is doing its best to keep the model’s performance under wraps.

Audi SQ5 (2024) as Erlkönig


The manufacturer with four rings wraps the modified SUV under a full body film. This hides the design details, but no amount of camouflage can hide the four-pipe exhaust system protruding from the rear. Also, this SUV seems to have big sports brakes as well.

The new images also provide a glimpse of the SQ5’s more understated interior. The interior is likely to be similar to that of the new Audi A4 – with a screen in front of the driver and another on the dashboard for infotainment functions. So the popular SUV should be equipped with the latest technology and functions.

The engine is still unknown

The SQ5 doesn’t look too different from previous prototypes we’ve seen. It comes with a single frame grille packed with slimmer headlights. A large opening at the bottom of the bumper extends to the lower part of the car. The rear has free-standing taillights.

Regardless of which powertrain Audi chooses for the redesigned SQ5, the engine is said to produce between 350 and 370 hp. It is not known whether Audi will keep the V6 engine under the hood or will switch to a four-cylinder.

It is possible that the manufacturer will combine the selected power with a small hybrid for additional efficiency and performance. It is also more than doubtful whether Audi will also keep the diesel, which has been exclusively used in the SQ5 since 2020.

Audi is also working on these models:

The New Audi A4 Avant (2023) has been spotted with a big screen
Audi e-tron and e-tron Sportback with facelift seen during testing
Audi A6 Sedan: Erlkönig shows the facelifted S Line
The new Audi S4 was caught inside and out for the first time as a spy

Audi hasn’t revealed when the new Q5 and more aggressive SQ5 could debut, but we don’t expect the sportster variant to arrive until 2024. However, the regular Q5 and its variants are likely to debut and go on sale before the SQ5. We expect the first performances in each case in the coming year.
