Expert Rating

4.9 (Excellent)
16 City / 23 Highway

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2014 Audi SQ5 OVERVIEW

The popular Audi Q5, a leading seller in the small luxury crossover segment, gets a more powerful engine in the SQ5 sport version. If you want the practicality of a crossover combined with European luxury and performance, this is your only choice.

What's New for 2014

While not strictly a brand-new model, since the SQ5 has been previously sold in Europe, it is new to the U.S. market for 2014.

Choosing Your Audi SQ5

All SQ5s come equipped with the same engine, a 3-liter supercharged V6 that produces 354 horsepower and 346 pound-feet of torque, along with an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.

Two trim levels separate luxurious from more luxurious. Which of the two trims you choose will depend on which high-end features you consider essential.

  • Premium Plus: The lower of the two trims, the Premium Plus still includes a full complement of standard luxury-level features such as leather and Alcantara sport seats and driver-customizable settings for steering and throttle response. However, any electronics beyond a basic sound system and Bluetooth phone connectivity are only available through additional package options. The MMI Navigation Plus package includes not only the navigation system but also HD radio, a DVD player, and a parking assist system with a rearview camera plus front and rear sensors. A Bang & Olufsen sound system and DVD entertainment system are also available as stand-alone options.
  • Prestige: The Prestige trim provides as standard all of those electronics available only as options at the Premium Plus level, except the DVD rear-seat entertainment system which is still available as an option only. It also adds Audi Connect providing wireless internet access, adaptive headlights and Audi’s nifty heated and cooled cup holder as standard equipment.

Seating options are the same for both trims with two color choices for the standard leather/Alcantara combination seats and four choices for the available Nappa leather seats and armrests.

CarsDirect Tip

The real difference between the two trims is in the electronic components. If you don’t need the wireless internet connectivity available only on the Prestige trim, you might save some money by adding the navigation system and Bang & Olufsen sound system as options at the Premium Plus level.
