Serving Valencia, CA

The 2021 Audi Q5 is a stunning crossover that has understandably captured your attention. This five-passenger model is a vision of elegance, and it also has distinctly athletic touches and capabilities. Before you start selecting the specific Audi crossover SUV that you want to call your own, you should also take a look at the Audi SQ5. This is a high-performance crossover that is comparable to the Q5 in many ways. The Audi Valencia associates are always pleased to answer our customers’ questions and to support our customers with their full model research experience.


The differences between the 2021 Audi Q5 and the 2021 Audi SQ5 begin behind the wheel. The Q5 is available with both gas and plug-in hybrid engines. The four-cylinder, 2.0-liter gas engine comes with a seven-speed auto-shift transmission and overdrive functionality. It generates 248 horsepower. The net horsepower for the plug-in hybrid powertrain is 362 horsepower. The SQ5 for 2021, on the other hand, pairs an eight-speed automatic overdrive transmission with a V6, 3.0-liter engine to generate 349 horsepower. All-wheel drive is standard in the Q5 and the SQ5.


The dimensions for these models are comparable, but these crossovers have standout exterior features. The Q5 has 20-inch wheels, a doubled-over design feature in the LED headlights, horizontal bars through the grille, and prominent definition rounding over the front wheels. The SQ5, on the other hand, has 19-inch wheels, an arrow-like LED feature in the headlights, black accents throughout the grille, and slightly less definition over the front fenders.


The Q5 and the SQ5 have comparable interior styling, but there are a few differences in equipment. The Q5 has woodgrain interior accents, bucket seats, and an optional hotspot. These are not available in the SQ5. On the other hand, the SQ5 has a navigation system and a few other extras.
