Design & Style

Once you get to see the 2018 Porsche Macan, you will notice that the exterior is more than just beautiful. It is gifted with a style that is truly captivating in the world of rugged yet elegant cars. Those LED headlights give it an even more impressive look on the outside. The cabin, on the other hand, is also a picture of sturdiness. This is thanks to the use of excellent quality materials used in the construction of its interior. You can also maximize the space given inside it.

The 2018 Audi SQ5 is also one of the most luxurious cars you will see in the world of SUVs. It has an element of elegance that complements its ruggedness on the outside. Its minimalist design is highly appreciated too plus the space in the cabin is also at par with that of the Macan.

It is definitely frustrating to take more time learning how the infotainment system and all other technologies work. Also, it lacks some of the vital phone integration features. You can give it points for its top-view camera system, blind spot monitoring, and adaptive cruise control though.


The 2018 Audi SQ5 is turbocharged by a V6, 3.0-liter engine that can power up to as much as 354 horses with maximum torque pegged at 369lb-ft.
