Default What color is this beautiful SQ5?

Do you guys know what color is on this SQ5? Daytona Grey or Monsoon Grey?? Or maybe something else?

It looks so nice. I want to select this color for my next SQ5

Thanks a lot! You are amazing

I saw 2015 SQ5 has full led light from Audi official website. Is this true ?

Yup, no prob.

It doesn't have full led headlights, you have to get the Prestige package to even get adaptive lights. Take a look at the S6/S7 with the full led headlights and they look completely different with their array of bulbs versus the single projector the SQ5 has. The 2015 builder is still missing some options as well. Probably a cut and pasting error or something.

That rear picture looks very Monsoon, but you can see how light the taillight assemblies are so the true color's probably quite a bit darker than that. Front looks like a light Daytona. So probably a 2015 Daytona (IIRC 2014 didn't get the option).

Not to mention, I haven't heard of anyone drooling over Monsoon... it's all about the Daytona.

I believe that is Monsoon. Like the poster above, Daytona is a tad darker.

No...wait...The front looks Monsoon, but the back looks like that new Floret Silver. However, there are no chrome caps on the door handles, so it has to be Monsoon. Neither Daytona nor Floret were available in 2014. Case solved.
