2022 BMW X4 M vs. 2022 Audi SQ5


BMW’s X4 M and Audi’s SQ5 are two of the most popular SUVs on the market—for a good reason. They’re both fun to drive, stylish, practical enough for everyday use, and they look great. But they have their differences too. We’ll explore those differences in detail below so you can make an informed decision between these two vehicles!

Design & Style

  • Exterior Design

The 2022 BMW X4 M is a sports car, so it’s no surprise that it looks aggressive. The front end has a more aggressive design with a larger air intake and fog lights. The rear end also has a more aggressive design than the 2022 Audi SQ5, with larger exhaust pipes and quad exhaust tips. The Audi SQ5, on the other hand, is more of a typical SUV with less of an extreme look than the BMW X4 M. The front grille on the Audi SQ5 looks more like the grille found on its predecessor; however, it can be optioned with an updated version of this signature feature for added style points.

On top of these differences in appearance between these two vehicles’ exteriors are some notable size differences between them as well: while both vehicles are relatively comparable in length (the Audi SQ5 being 3 inches longer), they differ greatly in height—the BMW X4 M being 4 inches taller than its German counterpart—and wheelbase (again favoring BMW). These discrepancies make sense considering one vehicle was designed primarily as a performance machine. In contrast, another was designed to be spacious enough for families looking for practicality without sacrificing comfort or convenience features like power seats or heated steering wheels.

  • Interior Design

Though the Audi SQ5 has a more complex interior design, it’s also more comfortable and luxurious. The 2022 BMW X4 M is simpler inside, with fewer controls to distract you from the road ahead.

In terms of comfort, both vehicles come equipped with heated leather seats and automatic climate control. However, in addition to these standard features that are present in all trims of both cars, you’ll find them with extras like navigation systems on select models that let you know where your next turn is coming up so you can get there faster than your friends—or at least. Hence, they think so when they see how little traffic there is on the highways around town!

Technology & Safety

The 2022 BMW X4 M and the 2022 Audi SQ5 have a lot of technology and safety features. The two cars are built to keep you safe and happy on your daily commute or weekend getaway.

The BMW X4 M has great safety features, like a driver assistance package that includes adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert and more. You can also get the Dynamic Driving Control suspension system which helps keep you stable when cornering at high speeds or going over rough terrain. The Roadside Assistance Package is another nice touch—it will let you know if something happens while driving so that you can call for help if needed!

The Audi SQ5 has plenty of its impressive safety tech as well: adaptive cruise control with stop/start function; electric parking brake; hill descent control; pre-sense city pedestrian warning system; front collision detection; lane change assist; multi-collision braking system (you don’t want to know what this does). The list goes on!


The BMW X4 M is powered by a 3.0L TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder engine that generates 469 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque. The Audi SQ5 has a 3.0L TFSI ultra-Quattro 4-cylinder engine that generates 280 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. The BMW X4 M comes with an 8-speed automatic transmission while the Audi SQ5 comes with an 8-speed automatic transmission as standard, but it can also come with a 7 speed S Tronic dual-clutch automatic transmission.

The Bottom Line

If you’re looking for a well-rounded vehicle with good performance and a high level of comfort, the 2022 BMW X4 M is the better choice. It offers more features, better engines, and a better safety rating.

The 2022 Audi SQ5 is cheaper but doesn’t offer the same level of performance as its German counterpart.
