The 2021 Audi SQ5 Is a Sporty, Fun Compact Luxury SUV


The Audi SQ5 is a fun, sporty luxury compact crossover. Today I'm reviewing the 2021 SQ5 to show you the quirks and features, and I'll show you everything you need to know about the Audi SQ5. Then I'm going to drive the SQ5 and review the driving experience.

    Exhaust pipe is omg. My sq7 have real pipes. This sq5 is exhaust parody. Why they do this. Next gen. you get exhaust stickers and you can stick where you want ( in s model get 4 and non s model get 2 piece)

    This is my kind of vehicle. However,,,I dont think its a SUV or cross over. It's more of a large hatchback or a smallish wagon. (So much fake, LAME!!)

    They replaced the old fake exhaust with a new fake exhaust. For $60+k, you'd think they could put a real exhaust on it.

    @doug In the third climate control, you can open and close the vent with the little spinning wheel. That will regulate how much air you get.🤷🏾‍♂️

    This channel is obviously of interest to men and since HAIR LOSS is a topic of major interest to MEN, I post this comment. Google the MALINIAK METHOD and learn about a NEW science, which explains that the main cause of HAIR LOSS is not DHT but a blockage of BLOOD FLOW caused by a tight LOWER scalp layer. This causes DHT to be over-produced and only then it becomes the “ killer ” of hair. The OLD methods have failed because they focus only on DHT and not on the MAIN cause…now we know why they all failed. We only go bald on top where this layer exists and only people with a very tight layer lose their hair. This method explains how to restore the blood flow properly with a NEW massage technique that is totally different from how it was done before and how to REVIVE dormant follicles with a device invented by NIKOLA TESLA which we were told was not possible and that’s FALSE . The hair loss syndrome is finally explained properly and this method uses NO DRUGS, NO LOTIONS and NO SURGERY.

    What a joke. RSQ5 exist in Europe (you said it doesn't exist). Rear seat climate control does nothing in general if you go to the rear setting in main module up front and hit 'off', then wait for front controls to re-emerge. You've been a joke, continue to be a joke, and will always be a joke. Smh. You suck

    Everyone realizes you can spec real exhausts with no extra cost, right?! Audi just gives you the choice because some people don’t like the carbon build up. That’s actually smart from Audi not stupid, so don’t be so quick to judge.
