With crossovers continuing to fly off dealer lots, the introduction of the high-performance variants can be viewed as the best thing to happen to SUV’s. #Audi was one of the early adopters into to compact performance SUV segment with the #AudiSQ5 nearly 6 years ago. The current model was introduced last year and shares much of its parts with the far more expensive Porsche Macan, including its #turbocharged V6 engine with 349 HP. Audi says it’ll do 0-60 in 5.1 seconds and hit a top speed of 155 MPH, exactly matching the specs of its pricier Porsche cousin. Although some other crossovers may be faster, the Audi continues to offer near perfect blend of technology, style, comfort, and speed.

    Morning guys! We are inclined to call this SUV a "Sports Sedan" because these performance crossovers are what manufacturers are seeing a lot of consumers trade in their traditional sports sedans for. While we may not like it, you can't argue with the increased practicality these SUV's give you while not losing too much in terms of driving fun. You could even call this 2019 SQ5 a bargain Porsche Macan S for a lot less money. Thanks for watching as always! Oh… and before someone else asks… we're leaving for Lake Tahoe in a week to drive and film the 2019 Mazda3 so stay tuned for that video soon!

    A manual thigh extender, which is good? Not when it's only 12 way seat adjustment and finicky AC seat options. Not sure how this compares to other vehicles in this segment, but that is worse than my 2014 KIA

    Would’ve been a great review but you speak too fast and you don’t pause between sentences. All of which makes it nauseating to listen to.

    The Macan S has a twin turbo 3.0 V6. This car has a single turbo 3.0 V6. Get your facts straight.

    Good review! You should do a comparison to the X3 M40i.

    Nice vehicle 🚗. I was just in that area for a week and I can relate to how you felt driving in NOVA. Madness if you get on the wrong road at the wrong time. 🤣

    I love my 2019 Audi SQ5 Prestige (with driver assistance) in Ibis white! I have the dynamic steering, sports package, cold weather package, carbon atlas inlays, and the fine Nappa leather seating. I feel my car is the modern day SPORT crossover utility vehicle. You can place kayaks on the roof cross bars, tow a jet ski or small boat, and put the air suspension in Allroad and go through snow without a problem. The Quattor system is excellent and slightly better than the Xdrive from BMW. I personally went with the 20" 5 spoke wheels which I think look pretty good and come with all seasons vs. the 21" wheel package. I drove the BMW X3M40i and X5 with M sport package. Both of which are great suv's. The X3M40i is slightly faster and the transmission is nice. But, it is narrow and the seats and interior are not as nice as the Audi. Plus, the BMW's cater to Apple phones and leave Android users out, of which I am. The build quality in the BMW is not as good in the Audi and the doors close with a twang vs the thunk of the Audi. The Audi B&O sound system is far superior to the BMW HK. Now, the BMW X5 with the M sport package is a whole different level and I love that vehicle. But, you instantly jump up 10k or more. So, I chose the Audi and I am very happy with my purchase. Lastly, the exhaust tips took a little getting used to. However, real tips only look good on a new car. After that, you are constantly trying to keep them clean. The BMW X3M40i black paint was flaking off on the exhaust tips of my friends' after a few thousand miles. That looked terrible to me so what is the point of tips then. I agree with about 90% of his review!

    Highly recommend it. Efficient highway mpg (mid-20s), superbly comfortable, ran a 13.6 @ 100mph on a warm night. The E-diff is really cool for large throttle input, tight maneuvers like pulling out in traffic. Without the drivers assistance package, but 21” wheels and Napa leather, the dealer discounted it 10% and we paid $60k.

    I thought I was having some deja vu and realized you already reviewed this car a year ago:

    Maybe it’s time to review the Porsche Macan S/GTS/Turbo.

    The heavy traffic scenario is more than likely the norm for any owner in a modern urban area performing a typical workday commute.

    Kind of amazing how boring Audi makes even its twin turbo V6. Very forgetable. Snooze. Maybe it's more the fact that the "S" model is really just an engine upgrade and less of a complete sports car upgrade. Also his fake acceleration giggles couldn't be more staged. Please stop being fake like the exhaust tips.

    Pretty crappy tacked on infotainment. Too expensive for this. Audi/VW ripping people off again. We need American and Japanese cars that keep the prices " real".

    I hate it so much that they did fake exhausts on their 2019 line. This honestly leaves a bad taste and makes me look elsewhere…

    Why the fake exhaust outlets, Audi? Why? I’d rather have no outlets than fake outlets.
