Audi has announced the addition of Black Edition models to the Q5, SQ5 and SQ7 ranges.

With increased equipment levels, the Black Edition variants are offered for the Q5 45 TFSI, Q5 50 TFSI and the SQ5 TFSI. The SQ7 is also available in Black Edition, featuring its own exclusive styling, trim and appointment.
As the name suggests, black highlights distinguish these models from their siblings. Subtle trim and design elements signal the exclusive nature of these models.

Inside, the Q5 Black Edition receives Audi’s interior ambient light package with 30 selectable colours, as well as heated front seats (already standard in the Q5 50 TDI) and a flat-bottom, multi-function steering wheel. Audi claims the limited edition model brings buyers more than $12,000 in additional features.
The Audi SQ5 Black Edition adds the Bang & Olufsen 3D sound system, Heads Up Display and an extended upholstery package – more than $13,000 worth of additional equipment over the standard Audi SQ5 TFSI.
Moving up, the Audi SQ7 Black Edition likewise offers an additional $17,000 worth of equipment and distinctive styling features. Highlights include metallic paint, carbon-fibre mirror housings and interior inlays, high-gloss titanium black exterior package, 22-inch Audi Sport wheels, panoramic sunroof and seats with diamond pattern contrasting stitching.
