2021 Audi SQ5 Sport Exhaust Tips – 80A071904



    The Audi SQ5 is the performance compact crossover that doesn’t really focus on performance. Sure, the 3.0L turbocharged V6 produces 349 horsepower and has a 0-100km/h claim of 5.1 seconds but the way this power and speed is communicated is very much aligned to how Audi engineers their core products. The SQ5 is still a premium compact crossover with a focus on refinement but lacks the precision and connection that a driving enthusiast would hope to expect out of a performance crossover.

    In essence, the SQ5 is much like any other core Audi with a lot more power but is that what you’re looking for?

    Making a Case for the SQ5

    The SQ5 makes a case for its existence with one fundamental point: the speed. The power plant is easily enough to confidently pull away from any standard Q5 with its 2L turbo four-cylinder engines. The acceleration, and the ability to confidently gain this speed, will be enough for anyone that has a slight passion for cars to step up to the additional cost of owning the SQ5. The retailing cost for this as-tested model is $74,500CAD. The 369lb/ft of torque is low down in the rev range meaning the V6 doesn’t need to hit redline to get all the thrills. This V6 was updated for the 2021 model year to feature the 12V mild-hybrid system. It isn’t as powerful and actively used as the 48V found in the larger V8 engines and some of the other Audi V6’s in their larger vehicles, but has similar intentions of improving fuel economy. The most telling sign of the mild-hybrid system would be the use of the stop-start system. The SQ5 doesn’t necessarily have to be at a complete stop for the engine to turn off. At very slow coasting speeds, the computer will presume the vehicle is coming to a complete stop, but if there is an immediate need to pick up speed, the small electric motor mounted between the engine and gearbox can propel the SQ5 those first couple of feet forward as the engine re-ignites and takes care of the rest. This whole process is only noticed if the driver really pays attention to the tach needle and the responsiveness from the gas pedal. Otherwise, this system could operate in the background without any driver or passenger ever knowing this SQ5 has hybridized assistance.

    The SQ5 plays things very safe. The steering is only a couple of degrees heavier than a normal Q5 and you can sense the additional weight under the bonnet. The suspension and overall relaxed nature is why people would buy the SQ5. The sportiness of the SQ5 isn’t its priority so long and short trips are just as peaceful and comfortable as a normal Q5. It has to be said, the noise from the engine and exhaust is subtle but purposeful. There’s a little more raspiness in Dynamic mode, or when the driver manually operates the 8-speed automatic transmission, but the noise and power never feels overbearing. A related criticism to the exhaust noise is the physical pipes themselves. The signature trait to an S-branded Audi is quad exhaust tips. Frustratingly, the SQ5 has fake outlets as standard. The real exhausts points down from under the bumper. Audi supplies a $2000CAD option to fit the SQ5 with real integrated exhausts, which is hilarious. The company claims this improves sound quality, as they also dub this option the ‘Sports Exhaust’. Admittedly, the volume and character of the exhaust note will be hard to tell the difference between each system unless tested side-by-side.

    The S-Branded Upgrades

    Via Max Landi

    The 2021 SQ5 receives the same exterior and interior changes just as the standard Q5 for its mid-life refresh. The exterior looks and the cabin of the SQ5 doesn’t vary too much from a normal Q5, especially if the last Q5 compared had the S-Line appearance pack. No need to worry, the SQ5 certainly has some features exclusive to its more mainstream family members. The SQ5 has a different grille pattern, larger brakes as standard (in this tester, they are joyfully painted red), and the S sports seats. Build quality, as always, is immediately appreciated to anyone that try out a new Audi product. It is evident the money spent to own and operate this vehicle goes into the precise crafted space and the sharp graphics in the Virtual Cockpit and 10.1’’ MMI touchscreen.

    Know What You Want From a Performance Compact Crossover

    Via Max Landi

    As mentioned before, the SQ5 plays things safe. The pickup in speed can be alarming but the Audi never seems to encourage pushing it more. With the optional air suspension system. The SQ5 can float down the road with the same effect as an A6. If you’re looking for driving precision and excitement with every input, a BMW X3 M40i would be a much better choice for drivers than want a car to motivate you to drive hard. This is no criticism to the SQ5 as it isn’t attempting to succeed in that mission. Yes, it labels itself as a performance crossover but how it defines that orientation is quite different to its rivals.

    Real Exhaust tips on SQ5 Available in the USA? – Audizine

    Real Exhaust tips on SQ5 Available in the USA? 07-29-2021 12:19 PM #1 Veteran Member Three Rings Real Exhaust tips on SQ5 Available in the USA? Can someone clarify the current situation on the 2021 SQ5 being available with REAL exhaust tips in the USA? I see mentions on threads going back and forth that is IS now an option in the USA – but I don’t see it anywhere on the build guide on the audi website. Is this something that the dealer only has an option to add when you order? Is this something that can be retroactively added once you receive the car? Still very confused and have not seen ANY USA spec cars yet with the real tips! Might want to upgrade my ’19 to the ’21 and wondering how to get this setup! Also – I don’t necessarily even care for the ‘performance’ exhaust or not – just looking to have real tips / exhaust setup come out the back and not this fisher price model option. 07-29-2021 03:22 PM #2 Junior Member Two Rings I have the real exhaust tips on my 21 SQ5. 07-29-2021 05:27 PM #3 Senior Member Three Rings The hot tips are a port installed option.

    Learn a Lesson in Branding From the 2021 Audi SQ5

    Learn a Lesson in Branding From the 2021 Audi SQ5 Audi went to great lengths to give their entire Q5 line a major makeover, and it’s easy to see that they put their heart and soul into making the SQ5 a luxurious, sporty ride. This vehicle is equipped with a sleek, modern interior and contemporary, polished exterior. The 2021 Audi 2021 SQ5 also yields a mighty, but elegant performance, making this SUV check all the boxes.  Interior features of the Audi SQ5 The interior of the Audi SQ5 is where this vehicle’s new design really shines. Equipped with a bright and colorful display in front of the steering wheel, drivers can control what information they see with a push of a button on the wheel itself. The star of this display is a full-color Google Earth map, allowing drivers to see their navigation information just below the windshield instead of constantly having to look over at the main display to their right.  Also notable is the lack of dials and knobs on the interior, as Audi has put most controls onto an infotainment touch screen in the middle of the dashboard. Temperature controls sit just below, giving the driver and front passenger full control of the heated seats and air conditioning. The SQ5’s seats are made with high-quality leather, featuring an eye-catching quilted pattern. One special note is the S logo printed on the seats and placed strategically around the car, ensuring that you won’t forget what you are driving. Exterior characteristics of the Audi SQ5 One of the most notable upgrades to the SQ5’s exterior is the updated grille, creating a more sleek and modern aesthetic to the front of the car. Audi stuck with the matrix LED headlights that perform a captivating animation when the car is turned on, and they provide fantastic lighting during night driving.  The back of the 2021 SQ5 looks mostly the same as past versions, with one notable exception. Oddly enough, Audi added rounded fake exhaust tips to the back of the vehicle to replace the more rectangular ones in the 2020 model. The real exhaust tips reside in the underbelly of the vehicle, but they clearly put in a decent amount of effort to make the visible ones look real. They do add a compelling visual to the rear of the SUV, but it does seem like an interesting choice.  Regardless, this SUV looks fantastic inside and out, and it’s nearly impossible to forget that the 2021 SQ5 was proudly crafted by Audi.  These performance metrics are wild RELATED: The 2021 Audi A8 Is the Epitome of Full-Size Luxury The Audi SQ5 looks great, sure. But does it perform? In short, yes. The 2021 Audi SQ5 provides raw power and smooth handling that every driver will appreciate. This SUV relies on a turbocharged V6 that can deliver 349 hp and 369 lbs of torque. The SQ5 can get from 0 to 60 MPH in an impressive 4.7 seconds, making it comparable to other high-performance SUVs. The 2021 SQ5 also stands out in that it accelerates quickly, but gracefully, feeling completely effortless for the car and driver.  Beyond its pure power, the 2021 Audi SQ5 is equipped with impeccable handling, both on the freeway or convoluted back roads. According to MotorTrend, the 2021 Audi SQ5 also handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain with ease. Its 21-inch wheels give it…
