Audi Australia will produce black edition variants for the award-winning Audi Q5 models as well as the SQ5 and SQ7 models

Already class leaders and tremendously successful models in their own right, Audi has taken the Q5, SQ5 and the SQ7 and given them an even greater edge, producing the strictly limited Black Editions.

Featuring distinctive styling both inside and out as well as up to $13,000 worth of exclusive equipment, these Black Edition models represent the very top of their respective model ones.

Audi Australia will produce black edition variants for the award-winning Audi Q5 models with the Audi Q5 45 TFSI, Q5 50 TFSI and the Audi SQ5 TFSI all carrying the exclusive Black Edition features. The Audi SQ7 is also be offered as special Black Edition, featuring its own exclusive styling, trim and appointment.

In keeping with the Audi ethos, subtly is the key, with black highlights distinguishing these models from their siblings. Subtle trim and design elements all speak to the exclusive nature of these models, while significantly increased trim and equipment levels inside provide even greater comfort and functionality, leaving no doubt as to their special pedigree.

The Audi Q5 Black Edition is offered with both TFSI and TDI powerplants producing 185kW and 210kW respectively, both mated to Audi’s tiptronic transmission. This model is immediately recognisable by its 21-inch alloy wheels, offered for the first time on Q5. In addition, the distinctive high-gloss titanium black exterior package, with black mirrors and roof rails set the Q5 Black Edition apart, along with its S line exterior style package with illuminated S line front door sill trims and privacy glass.

The interior too features special touches including the Audi interior light package with 30 selectable colours, heated front seats (already standard in the Q5 50 TDI) and a flat-bottom, multi-function steering wheel. In all, the additional appointment and equipment make up a total of more than $12,000, with a price of $80,300 for the 185kW Q5 Black Edition sport 45 TFSI quattro tiptronic, or $90,900 for those who prefer the 210kW TDI powerplant of the Q5 Black Edition sport 50 TDI quattro tiptronic.

Moving to the Audi SQ5 Black Edition, this potent model with its 260kW of power, adds the superb Bang & Olufsen 3D sound system, as well as a Heads Up Display and an extended upholstery package. This equates to more than $13,000 worth of additional equipment over the standard Audi SQ5 TFSI, and is priced at $108,200.
