I test drove the SQ5. I was considering it as a potential replacement for my 2009 Cayenne. It is not even remotely in the same league. It is very fast in straight line for an SUV. 0-60 is just over 5 seconds, while my Cayenne is just under 6 seconds. Beyond that, however, the car feels floaty and disconnected and the steering sucks. I would wait for the Macan for sure. If the Macan can replicate the overall responsiveness, brilliant steering and phenomenal ride/handling balance of the Cayenne in a smaller more dynamic package, it will be a real winner.

I used to be a big Audi fan, but after owning a Porsche and an M3, the Audis just don't cut it, R8 notwithstanding.
