The Audi Q5 has been updated for 2014 with boosted equipment lists and new options made available across the range.

The $62,200 Audi Q5 2.0 TDI quattro retains its entry-point pricing and gains xenon headlights and three-zone climate control as standard for the new model year.

Powered by a 130kW/380Nm 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel, the base oiler is teamed with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission to deliver a claimed 6.1L/100km – unchanged from the 2013 model year.

The 2.0 TFSI quattro entry petrol model now includes the same headlight and climate control upgrades as the diesel, however, the 165kW/350Nm turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder is now $300 dearer than the outgoing model at $63,200.

Audi Q5 3.0 TFSI - 1

Audi says the 2.0-litre unit is also now Euro 6 emissions compliant, though, tied to its eight-speed automatic transmission, fuel consumption remains at 7.9L/100km. Both models continue to feature hill hold assist, hill descent control and front and rear parking sensors.

At $74,100 and $75,500 respectively – the latter up $500 – the 200kW/400Nm supercharged 3.0-litre V6 and 180kW/580Nm 3.0-litre V6 turbo-diesel models receive 19-inch alloy wheels and entirely body coloured front and rear bumpers and side sills. A seven-inch screen with satellite navigation and reversing camera display is also carried over.

Newly added to the options list across the Q5 range are digital radio (DAB plus) for $800 and Aluminium/Beaufort Black Audi exclusive interior trim inlays for $2500.

Audi SQ5 TDI - 1

Audi’s first S-branded SUV – and Audi’s first S-badged diesel model – the $89,400 230kW/650Nm Audi SQ5 TDI, has also been mildly updated for the new year.

Powered by a 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged diesel V6, the flagship now comes standard with larger steering wheel-mounted shift paddles for its eight-speed automatic and a space saver spare tyre rather than the old puncture repair kit.

    These are not the prices quoted in the dealerships. More like 73k for the entry level model.

  • The voice of reason

    It would help if manufacturers would provide CA with “on road” pricing, rather than “list”.

    I get it that such pricing might vary between states, but the variation is probably not going to be a lot. Even if they provided NSW or Vic on road pricing (as the two most populous states), it would provide a much closer guide to actual prices being quoted by dealerships.

    It’s one thing to think: “I have a budget of $60K” and quite another to then walk into a dealership, to find that they start at $70K, once you drive them away.

    That might give rise to a call for “street” pricing – which would be too hard to track reliably, as it does fluctuate depending on a range of other factors.
