2018 Audi SQ5 Proves the Family Luxury Crossover Doesn’t Have to Compromise Driving Fun

Fact: this year, nearly a quarter of every vehicles sold with a four-ringed badge around the world will be a Q5. All-new for 2018, the Munich automaker has made their most popular model even better. But for those who’d prefer a sport sedan performance while keeping the Q5’s luxurious utility, recent reviews of the 2018 Audi SQ5 point to it being a winning alternative.

The utility and luxury appointments from the Q5 carry over mostly unchanged. Where the SQ5 differs is its performance credentials. Powered by a turbocharged V6 that sends 354 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque to its Quattro AWD system, it makes sixty mph in 5.1 seconds. That’s enough to make any enthusiast’s ears perk up, but there’s more to the story. Drive Select allows you to customize suspension tuning and ride height (with the adaptive air suspension with the S Sport Package only) with a button-push, and paddle shifters are on hand for those who prefer rowing through their own gears.

The family luxury crossover doesn’t need to be a compromise—it can be sporty and fun, too. If that’s your angle, then stop by our Audi dealership in Hampton, VA and sign yourself up for a test drive.
