Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Like the regular Q5, the high-performance SQ5 receives a host of exterior updates, including an all-new Sportback variant, for 2021 to freshen its look. New exterior lighting elements, a tweaked grille and bumpers, and new wheel designs differentiate it from last year's model. The top-spec Prestige gets OLED taillights as standard, and two new colors join the palette: Ultra Blue and District Green.

Pros
Handsomely-equipped cabin,
comfortable ride,
decent fuel economy for a performance SUV.

Cons
Not overly spacious,
turbo V-6 doesn't match rivals' horsepower,
handling not as sharp as it could be.

Sportier Sportback does well to not compromise on practicality, but you’ll pay a premium for odd looks.

Pros
Impressively practical despite the roof,
interior is still top of the class

Cons
It will give you an existential crisis.
What is it all for?
