      Do you think it's smart and fair to compare SQ5 which is DIESEL!!!... with BMW and MERCEDES you mentioned that are PETROL?!?

    2. Patrick Kawka

      Audi SQ5 is not in the same class as a BMW X3M or GLC 63amg. It is most definitely not a pioneer in the class as Bmw had an x330i as well as an x335i. Those are in fact it’s direct competitors. Audi has not yet introduced a competitor for the X3M or GLC 63. Hopefully soon. I do get annoyed at car reviewers that make that mistake. Do your research.

      I just came here for " THIS"

    4. MrPetrello

      Are the front seats super comfortable for long trips ?

    5. David Zheng

      Why couldn’t Audi just make the fender a bit wider? That way it wouldn’t look like an afterthought

    6. Bacon__ SteezBurger

      Yeah I wouldn’t view the no navi as a “must have” or like you’re getting screwed over if you’re paying that kind of money, but I feel like the majority of people these days just use their own navi with Bluetooth anyways since it has all their saved routes/addresses/traffic alerts/etc etc.. if there’s one thing I hear more than anything else about OEM navi is “well I just use Google maps on my phone because it works better”. I was the same way until I got my VW Tiguan R and decided to try out the satnav and immediately fell in love with how smooth and visually impressive everything was. Plus I’m a VW/Audi famboi when it comes to their 3D maps haha

      what a joke of a vehicle

    9. Simon

      I just want to know what car has ever gotten an 8 9 or 10

    10. GoogleShouldntRequireThis

      I don't understand wanting Audi/etc navigation when using Waze on that screen will always have the most up to date info

    11. • Barry •

      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)

    12. sphaera

      That tight second row is the main reason I don’t even consider the Q5 as an option...

    13. Vinnie Piazza Vlogs

      My cousin has the top-of-the-line model Of the Audi S Q5 and it’s so fast

    14. SneerfulDust

      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!!)

    15. B C

      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.

    16. ZeidGho

      Imagine paying that much money for fake exhaust, fake vents, and fake fog lights Why Audi? Just why?

    17. Tanuj Dua

      Lol “compact suv”. Huge for us UK folk.

    18. Forever Jones

      @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.🤷🏾‍♂️

    19. KC Smooth

      Idk why but it just looks so bland to me. I think the older ones look so much better.

    20. J.

      So glad I stuck with the 2013 model. All my stuff is real.

      1. KC Smooth

        My neighbors 2015 SQ5 is absolutely gorgeous compared to these new ones. I think the older ones are so much better looking.

      North America: "The wheels cannot stick out past the body of the car" Jeep owners: "Hold my beer"

    22. Chris Graham

      I’ll avoid this car purely because of the exhausts

    23. John Evans

      Ibis white or Glacier White Metallic? I feel like you guys that review cars should always tell us what the actual color of the vehicle is.....just a suggestion.

    24. Leon Maliniak

      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.

      CNN? Yikes

    27. Rowell C.

      Thanks, I hate it.

    28. Nico C

      You can absolutely spec this car with a real sports exhaust, it’s an option.

    29. Neclar

      Do a 🦎 review !!!

    30. Jonathan

      So I can't wirelessly charge my phone AND use the cupholders? F off audi

    31. Roger Skagerström

      VAG - Fake it 'till you make it! :D And no - those rear lights aren't clever. They're just a makeshift solution to get it legal. The obvious solution - to not make the rear end look like a diaper, and separate the lights, was not chosen :P

    32. Diecastube

      0:25 - What car is that??? Can’t wait for the review!!

    34. gas-powered-crusader

      Under 5s car is not a sporty car?!? 🤯🤯🤯

    35. Tom

      What this car does not come with navigation? I didn't even know that Audi offered models today without navigation. My 2021 Q5 has navigation but I'm in Canada, not sure if any come with out it here.

    36. ConTourNext

      I've owned it about 3 years. Everything is great except for seats. It's uncomfortable for a long trip purpose.

    37. Daniel Clay

      What is that car at the beginning

    38. OE3IDE

      another good example of crap from vw-group :-)

    39. Tanmay Gupta

      Fake af exhausts 😂

    40. Juan A

      I'll never look at a SQ the same again after finding out about all these lies 😕😅

    41. Carlos Martinez

      Please review the BMW X5 2021

      0:59 If you listen very closely, you might be able to hear a lamborghini aventador.

    43. Memes 4 the masses

      The exhaust is an option to have real exhausts

    44. David Leesin

      it's disappointing to see all the fake things on such a nice looking suv, it would have been such a simple upgrade on the mufflers, the "fog lamps" i like but come on Audi , fake muffler tips, RICER !!! SHAME !!!

    45. タコ/tako

      If only the video was 1second longer so it can be 20minutes and 21 seconds long

    46. Tim Fountain

      12:00 - Look at the elbow dents in the center armrest on a brand new car. That's not "Vorsprung durch Technik"

    47. Mason Griffith

      Audi doesn’t have a luxury high performance SUV ? Yes they do, it’s called the RSQ8. Not compact, but mid size suv.

    48. Chris McClelland

      The Q5 definitely is not a crossover... its a small SUV

    49. Joel Altre-Kerber

      I currently drive a early-year 2008 A4 Avant - would this be an acceptable replacement? I wish.

    50. Bazlightyear007

      Those fake quad exhaust tips are a major disappointment. You really want people laughing at you?!

    51. Dan MacK

      It'd be a lot cooler if all the rear lights worked all the time imo

    52. Sebastian Winter

      Americans are really getting out of hand, calling the Q5 a 'compact' SUV O_o

    53. Sideu 1

      that fake as sound is so bad

    54. J.

      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

    55. Timothy Dugan

      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.

    56. Crispy

      This was just painfull to watch . what the heck was Audi thinking .....i mean so many big braintime fails in this car with one heck of a price tag...#Audi get your shit together ...

    57. Robert Fitzgerald

      Doug is the guy Fathers warn their daughters about

    58. Nate Mann

      Fake.... like the people that buy them lololol

    59. fuckoffyou

      Why did Audi stop at 4 fake exhaust, why not 8 or even 16. That would be even more Audi Sporty! lul

    60. Andrew Loy

      Is it weird that the exterior and interior of this car just... pisses me off? Like... I wouldn't buy it just because of how irritating the whole vehicle is.

    61. Joe Moore

      How do you compare the awd system next to bmw and Mercedes?

    62. \\/\//

      I like the old fake exhaust. It was different and had a clean look. Love the hip flares and wave lines across the door panels.

    63. Moritz Reiche

      He probably got that car from Ron Burgundy... 😜

    64. Dan Patko

      Hey Doug, have you noticed the second set of tail lights are the "rear fog lights". They are incandescent bulbs so they don't freeze over and become invisible. Very handy for being seen in snow storms.

    65. Sailing Anarchy

      dude - harsh ride? how in the hell did you fail to mention the FOUR different air suspension settings?? You know, like the comfort setting? jesus, what a huge omission.

    66. Shawn N

      I also wanted to make a note about the GPS. Audi assumed people didn't use "their" GPS. Since they didn't have a touch screen and their dial was very cumbersome so people used their phone. Now they have touch screen and they remove the GPS. Duh!

    67. TigerChamp 99

      Another boring Audi review. Better wait for the RAM Van review.

    68. MrSimon1909

      "compact" 4,7m long 1,9m wide

    69. 15DudeAwesome

      Those rear cupholders

    71. Austin Durst

      The fake pipes pisses me tf off

    72. AV8R767

      Fake exhaust tips! Im out.

    73. Marc Espo

      Good point regarding not making much progress over the last 7 years. Reason being it would be a Macan/Cayenne killer if they beefed this up too much. Already is a superior ride to the Macan as is.... VW Group board room type stuff!

    74. Adrian Jimenez

      That car is definitely 100% not worth at least 55k An American pickup truck puts more emphasis on the styling elements to make them functional at least

    75. Rod C

      Roasted for having fake exhausts but is just on trend with so many other brands. The car industry needs to be roasted for the increasing amount of "fake" creeping into their designs beyond just exhaust pipes.

    76. Matyaz84

      50 % of comments are about fake exhaust. I hope Audi sees this and stops doing this bullshit.

    77. Enrique A

      Audi is losing the battle since many years ago. Not a good product vs price. In México they are getting behind in the market. Very poor cost - benefit cars.

    78. YT LY

      Fake exhaust pipes! What's the point ?

    79. A Seregin

      “Never seen a movable cell phone charger”. Umm, how about literally all Toyotas?

      1. Arz Boltzka

        @A Seregin in conclusion, Toyota>Audi

      2. A Seregin

        @Jer Cal and the Camry

      3. Jer Cal

        The Highlander has a movable wireless charger

    80. DoubleDeckerAnton

      The 'fake quad tips' made me want to claw my eyes out.

    81. seankayn

      SQ5’s direct competitor is X3 M40i, not X3 M.

    82. Nicholas Johnson

      David Dobrik gave his assistant the same car lmaooo

    83. Sibusiso Ayanda Ndlangisa

      Please review the 2014 SQ5 TDI.

    84. Darth Nexus

      Anyone who owns this car is fake af. All that fake for no damn reason 🤦🏿

    85. Jee Lee

      nobody cares about jumping brake lights Doug. Enough already dude, you mention them in every other video. You like sounding like a broken record?

    86. Siddharth Dawar

      What in the name of actual f*** is going on with the exhaust pipes? How can someone at "AuDi" approve that ridiculousness on an "S" model? Like WTF! This level of stupidity should be reserved for "Pimp my Ride" customers only.

    87. DOM

      As an Audi owner need to say: wtf is this?

    88. Shmokee M23

      In the grill, the fake part is because some people like people in the uk having number plates there

    89. Dayton Corl

      The Porsche Macan is the same chassis as the Q5, want an RSQ5? Just get a Macan Turbo with the RS5’s 2.9L twin-turbo V6. I might add that in the future when theses cars are cheaper, I’m sure there will be engine swaps of the 2.9L into the SQ5.

    90. Jer Cal

      "Never seen a movable wireless cellphone charger" How about some Toyota cars?

    91. The Reviewer Man

      Another great video 👍🏼

    92. Alejandro Leitón

      isnt the competition of this the X5 and GLE??

      1. Jer Cal

        Those are larger vehicles

    93. STOP

      16:27 wrong there is an Audi RSQ8

    94. Nathan Allen

      Audi is sleeping on an RSQ5

    96. Nipuna Pamuditha

      Wtf is wrong with u doug this is crap

    97. Ethan Yoo


    98. A

      This car is so sporty that we are goin to see none in a circuit

    99. Justin De Bel

      It's a good looking vehicle, but between the fake exhaust tips and lack of nav at $60k makes it a very sad value proposition.

    100. Nitish Goel
