The 2021 Audi SQ5 Is a Sporty, Fun Compact Luxury SUV

4 105
The Audi SQ5 is a fun, sporty luxury compact crossover. Today I'm reviewing the 2021 SQ5 to show you the quirks and features, and I'll show you everything you need to know about the Audi SQ5. Then I'm going to drive the SQ5 and review the driving experience.

What a joke. RSQ5 exist in Europe (you said it doesn't exist). Rear seat climate control does nothing in general if you go to the rear setting in main module up front and hit 'off', then wait for front controls to re-emerge. You've been a joke, continue to be a joke, and will always be a joke. Smh. You suck

Everyone realizes you can spec real exhausts with no extra cost, right?! Audi just gives you the choice because some people don’t like the carbon build up. That’s actually smart from Audi not stupid, so don’t be so quick to judge.

Why did Audi stop at 4 fake exhaust, why not 8 or even 16. That would be even more Audi Sporty! lul

I like the old fake exhaust. It was different and had a clean look. Love the hip flares and wave lines across the door panels.

Hey Doug, have you noticed the second set of tail lights are the "rear fog lights". They are incandescent bulbs so they don't freeze over and become invisible. Very handy for being seen in snow storms.

dude - harsh ride? how in the hell did you fail to mention the FOUR different air suspension settings?? You know, like the comfort setting? jesus, what a huge omission.

I also wanted to make a note about the GPS. Audi assumed people didn't use "their" GPS. Since they didn't have a touch screen and their dial was very cumbersome so people used their phone. Now they have touch screen and they remove the GPS. Duh!

Good point regarding not making much progress over the last 7 years. Reason being it would be a Macan/Cayenne killer if they beefed this up too much. Already is a superior ride to the Macan as is.... VW Group board room type stuff!

That car is definitely 100% not worth at least 55k
An American pickup truck puts more emphasis on the styling elements to make them functional at least

Roasted for having fake exhausts but is just on trend with so many other brands.
The car industry needs to be roasted for the increasing amount of "fake" creeping into their designs beyond just exhaust pipes.

50 % of comments are about fake exhaust. I hope Audi sees this and stops doing this bullshit.

Audi is losing the battle since many years ago.
Not a good product vs price.
In México they are getting behind in the market.
Very poor cost - benefit cars.

The Porsche Macan is the same chassis as the Q5, want an RSQ5? Just get a Macan Turbo with the RS5’s 2.9L twin-turbo V6. I might add that in the future when theses cars are cheaper, I’m sure there will be engine swaps of the 2.9L into the SQ5.

The whole front end looks ugly. Looks like a Hyundia Palisade. It’s nice that Audi started doing touch screen but still can’t get use to the “stuck on” ipad look. The Q3 has a really nice dashboard. My wife has a 2018 Q5 and I’m surprised that the center console storage area still sucks. Can’t slide it to get into the storage cubby under the arm rest if you have a bottle of water or travel mug.

The buick 6 port holes thru the fender confused me when the car had a v8. The plastic fake exhaust ports will be even more sad after its all electric.
At this price no navigation is ideal. Just buy a ten year old gamin from someone shopping garage sales for ebay.

Why does the front look way bigger than the back ? I assume it has an auto park function in the home depot curbside pickup spaces .

Audi Sport wheels that say 'Audi Sport' on them to add 6x the cost. Seriously. VW/Audi factory wheels are shitty, and typically FIVE TIMES the cost of any aftermarket wheel.

"it's a sporty luxury compact crossover" - wow, in Germany it's considered as a big SUV. We propably don't have to compensate other lenghts as much.

For a guy who doesn't bother to shave or comb his hair for his 4 million subscribers, he sure is sensitive about Audi's fake styling features. Maybe I'm being too harsh. After all, we are in a pandemic and Doug's T-shirt has probably only been worn for 3 or 4 days in a row...
