Audi Q5 and SQ5: Best Cars to Buy Now


The SQ5 might look barely different from a regular Q5, Audi’s hugely successful midsize SUV. But under its hood lies a turbocharged 3.0-liter 6 with a surprising 354 horsepower, 21 more than the S4 sedan and S5 coupe, both of which are sports cars in disguise. Worried about your lead foot? There’s an array of less-angry Q5s, from 4- and 6-cylinder gas models to a new diesel and hybrid. [$38,195/$52,795;]
