Looking for a luxury SUV that features power, the newest technology, and fuel efficiency? If so, an Audi is right for you. For drivers seeking these features, it often comes to a choice between the 2021 Audi SQ5 or the 2021 Q5.

Audi Denver is here to help drivers in Parker, Castle Rock, and Denver, CO, discover which luxury vehicle fits their lifestyle. We have put together this guide to help you learn more about the SQ5 and Q5. Read on for more information!

Engine Performance SQ5 vs Q5

If you're looking for an SUV that has more power and a sporty feel, the SQ5 might be the vehicle for you. The engine is a 3.0L 6-cylinder with 349 horsepower and provides an efficient EPA-estimated 18 city/24 highway MPG.1

The Q5's engine is a 2.0L 4-cylinder with 261 horsepower. The Q5 is a hybrid with an electric-only power option, resulting in an EPA-estimated 23 city/28 highway MPG.1

If you are looking for a car that has a more powerful drive, the SQ5 might be the right choice for you. However, if you want a ride that focuses more on fuel efficiency, the Q5 might be a better fit.

The seating capacity in both SUVs is the same; the SQ5 and the Q5 seat five people, so no one gets left behind.

To keep everyone comfortable, the SQ5 and the Q5 both come with a standard three-zone automatic climate control system. You and your passenger can adjust the temperature to suit your needs and comfort level. If you're a fan of heat, the SQ5 and the Q5 even have heated front seats for those days when you need a bit more heat to push the cold out.

For those in need of cargo space, these models have you covered. To increase the carrying capacity of both vehicles, the backseats of the SQ5 and the Q5 offer 40/20/40 split folding capabilities. The total cargo volume for both the SQ5 and Q5 54.0 cubic feet. With either model, you'll have plenty of space for all your items.
