Audi SQ5 Interior
There’s little difference between the interior of the SQ5 and the standard Q5. The biggest difference is the raised pedals – the SQ5 is going for a racing layout, though that does feel out of place in a crossover. The dashboard has a better layout and is a big improvement over Audi’s standard dash. The gear stick, however, is still awkwardly positioned and the car has the same cramped feel of the Q5. It is a smaller vehicle, but that restrictive feel is a big flaw in the model that should have been addressed.
Audi SQ5 Exterior
Audi has got the compact styling right with the SQ5. It’s well designed, with a slick, aerodynamic feel to it, and avoids the block-like look of other crossovers. That being said, the SQ5 is not the best-looking car – the squinting headlights and protruding rear not working in its favor. The styling is somewhat redeemed by the bold and dramatic front end.
