Compare the Performance of the 2017 Audi SQ5 and the 2017 BMW X5

German-engineered luxury naturally comes with a higher level of performance, but the new 2017 Audi SQ5 takes performance to an even higher level over the 2017 BMW X5. Both models come standard with a 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine, but the similarities end there. While the Audi SQ5 comes with a V6 configuration, the BMW comes with an antiquated vertical inline engine design. What's more, the new Audi SQ5 is supercharged compared to the turbo found on the BMW which means you won't have to endure a turbo lag when passing or merging in the SQ5. You'll also appreciate significantly more power behind the wheel of the Audi. Another substantial performance advantage found in the Audi SQ5 is that it comes standard with the legendary quattro all-wheel drive system. You'll have to pay even more for all-wheel drive in the BMW. Take your place behind the wheel of the remarkable, exhilarating, and comfortable 2017 Audi SQ5 SUV, and we're confident you'll agree that it far outperforms the BMW X5.
