Serving Pembroke Pines, FL

Serious SUV shoppers who demand luxury and performance in a new vehicle overwhelmingly look at the Audi lineup. The 2019 Audi Q5 is a second-generation compact luxury crossover that may undoubtedly meet many drivers’ expectations. At first glance, the popular Audi SQ5 for 2019 carries a similar body style and exterior design as the Q5. They have three similar trims as well. However, when you look beneath the surface, you will see the differences between these two SUVs. Your understanding of their differences may help you to determine if the Q5 or the SQ5 is a better fit for your needs.


One of the more significant differences between the 2019 Audi Q5 and the SQ5 is the production. The more affordable Q5 is equipped with a TFSI 2.0-liter turbocharged engine. It provides you with 248 horsepower, and it comes with a dual-clutch, 7-speed automatic transmission with a Quattro all-wheel-drive drivetrain. The SQ5 is equipped with a 3.0-liter, TFSI turbocharged V6 engine that provides 349 horsepower. It is mated with a similar transmission and drivetrain as you will find in the Q5, but it has a S-specific advanced suspension system. The base trim for the 2019 Q5 comes with 18-inch wheels and all-season tires. The equivalent trim for the SQ5 has 20-inch wheels and summer performance tires.


From the exterior, you will notice minimal differences between the 2019 Q5 and the 2019 SQ5. They share a similar profile with the same LED headlights. The grille, contouring, and bumpers look similar across the trims as well. When you visit Audi Pembroke Pines to compare the models with a test drive, you may compare trim-specific differences, including the trims where a sunroof, roof rails, and other features are standard.


The 2019 Audi Q5 has all of the features that you may be looking for in a luxury car. However, trim-by-trim, the SQ5 has a few extras. For example, the base trim for the 2019 Audi Q5 has leather interior with wood inlays, pre-sense safety technology, a rearview camera, an electric rear spoiler, and more. The base trim for the SQ5 comes with these features as well as voice recognition, advanced cruise control, a premium sound system, and sport seats.
