Helping my Dad, ordered a Q5 but then ran across the SQ5

Hi Guys,

As the title states, I have been helping my father decide on a new car for himself. He ended up ordering a 2015 Q5 Moonlight Blue 3.0 TFSI from a dealer. I don’t know the Audi lines thoroughly and want to make sure that he is not missing an opportunity.

Is the SQ5 worth the additional ~$10k (USD) asking price (please keep in mind he is 70 years old, and is definitely a function over form type personality)? As I can tell, aside from the steering wheel, seat inserts, quad tip exhaust, and 21" wheels they are the same car. Is the suspension any different on the SQ5? Any help here would be greatly appreciated…

Thank you.
