Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

As you might expect from looking at them side by side in a parking lot, the Audi Q5 and the Audi SQ5 are two versions of the same small luxury crossover SUV. The SQ5 offers more power and some extra performance along with a few added luxury touches to help it feel a bit more premium.

Pros
Impressively comfortable ride for a sport-tuned SUV
Generous space for passengers
Luxurious but restrained interior design
Nimble handling

Cons
Lack of touchscreen functionality limits smartphone integration usefulness

By:

Thankfully, the Audi SQ5 is a lot more comfortable than most of them. Its standard adaptive suspension will let you choose between sporty or more comfortable settings, but the optional adaptive air suspension irons out bumps better than any other sporty SUV. It’ll also lower the car’s ride height at speed to make it more stable and you can raise it by 45mm if you fancy a spot of light off-roading.

Pros
Very fast
Great build quality
Spacious interior

Cons
Expensive options
Diesel engine only
Pricey compared to alternatives

By:

The SQ5 displays great balance between driving dynamics and comfort, proving its worth in a competitive class.

Pros
Numerous standard interior features,
well-balanced ride,
surprisingly fuel efficient.

Cons
Passenger volume and cargo space is lacking,
bland exterior design,
falls short to its rivals in terms of performance.

Pros

Genuinely fun to drive for an SUV
Lots of standard equipment

Cons
