When Audi released the new 2014 SQ5, its stylish look and promise of a powerful, high-performing engine had auto enthusiast lining up to test-drive the new model. These drivers were trying to find out what kind of power is behind this five-passenger crossover. Is it possible that Audi has provided its customers with a vehicle that is large enough for the whole family, car seats and all, yet sporty and powerful enough to appease the drivers? Many drivers are saying yes the 2014 Audi SQ5 offers the power, style and comfort they want in a family-size vehicle.
Of course the first thing consumers look at is the exterior of the vehicle to see if it meets their standards. This is why Audi went all out to redesign this model with a stylish and modern look for the new 2014 SQ5. This crossover looks more like a large sedan than a five-passenger crossover with a cargo space of 29.1 cubic feet with the rear seats up and a full 57.3 cubic feet with the rear seat folded down.
Perhaps is the bold lines and perfect curves that make the SQ5 look great, or it could be the sweepback headlights, prominent grille sporting the Audi logo, the 20-inch alloy wheels, or the rear split spoilers that enhance the look of the car. No matter which features you like best, there is no doubt that this is one good-looking vehicle.
Step into the driver’s seat and you will be treated with extremely comfortable heated, leather seats that offer 12-way adjustment abilities with seat memory. Grab ahold of the multifunction steering wheel and you will notice the flat-bottom design that is more impressive than you may think. Top this off with a three-zone climate control, auto-dimming interior lighting, sensor windshield wipers and headlights, and cruise control for a truly luxurious ride.
The car also includes Audi’s own Audi Connect infotainment system that includes a touchscreen, Bluetooth and smartphone compatibility, a driver information system, along with a 10-speaker audio system the connects to satellite radio.
A look under the hood will reveal a 3.0-liter, six-cylinder, V6 engine with an eight-speed automatic transmission and Quattro all-wheel drive. This engine provides a 354 horsepower with a 346 lb/ft of torque. This allows the 2014 Audio SQ5 to go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just over five seconds, with a top out speed of 155 miles per hour. Add this with its quad exhaust and you have one great performing crossover. It also offers a fuel efficiency of 16 miles per gallon in the city and 23 miles per gallon on the highway, which is not bad for a five-passenger crossover.
The main advantage of the new 2014 Audi SQ5 is that families no longer have to sacrifice size for performance, comfort and style. They can have it all with the new SQ5. However, this vehicle is not just for families. It is also perfect for those who need to tote around a lot of extra things or those who just want to have the space available if they need it.
