Audi Unveils 2014 SQ5, and It's Sweet

Audi performance SUV is surprisingly quick

Audi makes some really cool sports cars and luxury vehicles, but that's not all the brand is about. Audi also makes an interesting SUV called the Q5. At the 2013, Detroit Auto Show Audi unveiled the 2014 SQ5 performance SUV.

Performance SUVs are a bit strange in some respects because you wouldn't think of a large and bulky people hauler of being a performance vehicle for the most part. However, Audi crams a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 engine under the hood of the SQ5 and the bulky SUV can move.

The engine produces 354 hp and 347 pound-feet of torque. Audi says that the engine will push the big four-door SUV to 60 mph in 5.3 seconds. That's faster than some sports cars. The supercharged V6 is mated to an eight-speed Tiptronic transmission. Pricing and availability information for the vehicle are unknown at this time.

Overview Mid-sized upscale SUV Pros Stylish, comfortable, well-priced Cons Tight rear-seat legroom; complicated CUE infotainment system Value for money Fair What would I change? Increase rear-seat legroom; simplify CUE How I would spec it? SRX Luxury Collection I don’t know about you, but when it comes to the Cadillac brand and SUVs, the SRX isn’t what immediately springs to my mind.
