2014 Audi SQ5 review

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


With a potent V6 engine, the 2014 Audi SQ5 is good at just about everything.


rkhrahmani says:

I need to ask for your opinion. I am in the US and I like Q5 (SQ5 is too
expensive for me). First, I wonder would you pick: Q5 with V6-TSFI or Q5
with V6-TDI. Second, I wonder if I should wait until 2016 for the second
generation Q5 (if it is going to be released in 2016).

ProteanView says:

This is the car I want. SUV space, but not too big & still has a sports car
feel. Audi has had the best interiors for a while but it’s definitely time
for a redesign. They better not wait too much longer than 2015 if they want
to keep this momentum.

nickolastiguan says:

I agree with Zack about the interior, it is too similar compared to the

And here another problem, the Porsche Macan Turbo S

Brandon Friesen says:

Zak! Review its brother, the Tiguan! I know you have one from 2009 but 2014
is different. Please review a 2014!

Timothy Redd says:

The center console is not covered in hard plastic it is a mixture of
aluminum and wood

Ahmed Shahreer says:

Nice Review! 

Jacob Dunn says:

MMI needs more color, it looks depressing! 


Test drove this couple months ago and I gotta say it’s fantastically fast,
and so smooth at the same time… But If I were to get another Q5 I would
be more than happy to stick with the base turbo 4. Peppy engine, great gas
mileage, and costs almost half of that…

Why no HD D:

NatureGirl62 says:

I bought the SQ5 in November. It rocks. The guy who says the interior is
like the VW Tiguan is grossly mistaken. Has he actually driven the SQ5? I
think not. And to those who compare it to the Macan, that’s another story.
Porsche isn’t Audi. Don’t judge until you actually drive. And when you
drive, you’ll want this. The pricing quoted isn’t accurate, though. If you
want it loaded, with the Prestige package, you’ll be paying north of $70k
by the time you walk out the door.

inevahdie says:

As a A6 owner, I wish these reviews also talk about poor longterm quality
of Audi as well. If these reviewer buy any direct injected European car
with their own money and drive it for more then a couple of years, theses
reviews will be completely different

malekyo says:

I own the SQ5 and this review is spot on! The interior is average and the
seating is not comfortable for long drives. My previous car (Lincoln MKX)
was much more comfortable and had better options and ergonomics… Audi get
your shit together!

Allen Lou says:

I love my Q5 TDI, isnt quite the SQ5. But feels freaking awesome. 420lbft
of torque!

Däne Fjordlùnd says:

The softer interior plastics strip and peel much faster though…I think
it’s a good balance. The 90s Audis/VWs had those issues, they’re obviously
using their experience here

Peter Gregorian says:

…. sorry folks… Audi>Everything #Truth #TruthinEngineering 

sachin1006 says:

would much rather get the new Porsche Macan S base model and maybe get a
ECU upgrade down the road

Scott Campbell says:

hey zach, nice review.. do u remember the trim level of this sq5

Oliver S says:


Manuel Grimm says:

In Germany you can only get a SQ5 TDI with a 3 liter biturbocharged V6
diesel engine with 313 horsepower oO never heard of that petrol version

Simon L says:

Will you be doing the North American golf review?

Monk MonkMonk says:

And obviously “T” stands for Supercharged.

Tyler Mcclamb says:

Can you do a review on the porsche panamera 4. You did the 4s, turbo, and
even the gts but if u do the panamera 4 i would be happy

julian lopez says:

the only thing dated is the size of the screen. 

aaron collier says:

A big thick one to hold on to? sorry dude

Ovi Muresan says:

Excellent review, very knowledgeable guy!! SQ5 is a star, I’ve just tested
the 2014 ML350 both bluetech and gas and the interior is boring, dashbord
is boring, the gas model is slow like a whale, Audi rules… My humble

Jens Horbeek says:

In the Netherlands the sq5 is a 3liter diesel

Ashton Bradly says:

Finally someone honest about Audi dated interiors

Island Haze says:

it’s a perfect car! really great!

rskting1 says:

Bmw interior is even older. It’s the same interior now as in 1992. I’m
serious, look at the layout. Audi is newer, but the mercedes with the c and
cla gla class air vents is a real change. 

teknodisko says:

H&K? I thought it only came with audi symphony, Bose, or B&O.
