Audi SQ5 Plus 2016 review
Everything - great specification, very comfortable and quiet, handles great, plenty of space too. Goes like a sports car but can also get well over 40mpg if careful (best I've had was 48mpg).
The only criticism I have personally is the door mirrors are huge and as I like to sit low get in the way of vision on roundabouts etc
Would you recommend it?
How well does it tow?
It tows effortlessly, 700Nm of torque on tap. Reversing camera is a great option for hitching up. Gearing is good and with factory tow bar (not sure with aftermarket) the car knows the caravan is connected and holds gears longer than normal to allow for the extra load.
What's it like without the caravan?
It is a fantastic all-rounder. Drives and handles like a sports car, yet has room for the family and good boot space. Probably by far the best car I've had for everyday use. Comfort and reasonable economy too.
Anything to look out for?
No issues at all one year from new
Is it easy to live with?
Very easy, lots of standard features. I chose memory seats so good for me and my wife as we like very different driving positions. Everything is easy to use and even to Sat Nav is great. Fuel economy is very acceptable considering the performance available. Tyre wear is good, 15,000 miles and still a good amount of tread left.
Did you buy it new or used?
Where did you buy it?
What was the seller like?
I bought from Cambridge Audi (after contacting various dealers) and got a fantastic deal. So much so we also bought an A3 cab from them a few months later with another fantastic deal.
