Reviews & Comparisons


Despite its extra oomph, the SQ5 is actually underpowered when compared to rivals such as the BMW X3 M, the Porsche Macan Turbo, and the Mercedes-AMG GLC-class. Neither is the SQ5 as crisp and athletic on a twisty road as those powerhouses. The silver lining is that the Audi offers more ride comfort, which may appeal to buyers who prefer comfort over maximum cornering grip.

Although some companies do offer hotter alternatives, don't be swayed by speed - the 2021 Audi SQ5 is the perfect middle ground. This crossover's strong mid-range performance will satisfy the average shopper, while the broader platform ticks all the appropriate boxes for impressive luxury and modern tech at a competitive price.

As a facelift, we'd call the 2021 SQ5 a success as it looks more dramatic, drives better, and delivers more performance. However, the Q5 underpinnings still lack the sporty character found in some of the SQ5's rivals, keeping it from being our favorite. Both the BMW X3 M40i and Mercedes-AMG GLC43 will outperform it and deliver more fun in the process. However, the Audi excels in comfort, so perhaps it can carve out a niche with buyers that want speed without a jarring ride.

On the road, however, the SQ5 feels closer to a hot hatch than a hot SUV. The low body roll and great traction make handling on tight corners a breeze. On a trip to Latigo Canyon in Malibu, which is a serpentine road that snakes up the mountain range, the SQ5 didn't hesitate once despite the steep climbs and altitude.

2018 Audi SQ5 vs Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 Comparison Test

Here we have a couple of crossovers that are neither the largest nor smallest, the fastest nor most luxurious, and they are all the better for it. The Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 is the middle, mildly sporty trim of the brand's small-ish crossover, between the base GLC 300 and the b...

About the 

If the standard Q5 isn't powerful enough or sporty enough for you, Audi has an SUV that just might satisfy: the 2021 SQ5. There's also a new Sportback variant that offers a more rakish appearance. Like its four-cylinder Q5 stablemate, the SQ5 delivers a high-tech and feature-rich cabin, handsome styling, and refined road manners.
