Audi SQ5 TDI: The full throttle SUV
Audi extends the Q5 series with a sporty model that is called SQ5 TDI. The SUV is powered by a 313 PS turbodiesel. Nevertheless, there is surprisingly economical.

Audi is serious about the plan to recharge the Q series in sports. After the RS Q3 study shown in Beijing in April, Audi now uses the 24-hour race of Le Mans as a backdrop to present a high-performance Q5 that listens to the SQ5 TDI model name.
The model is a variant of the Q5 that has just revised and is driven by a 3.0-liter V6 diesel with a biturbo charging. The engine was first shown in the A6 in summer 2011 and is 230 kW/313 hp; The maximum torque is 650 Nm, which between 1.450 and 2.800 rpm. This torque is too high for the in-house seven-speed double clutch transmission, which is why Audi uses an eight-speed converter machine in the SQ5.
The sprint from 0 to 100 km/h only lasts 5.1 seconds, the VMAX is 250 km/h at regulated. In contrast, there is a cycle consumption of moderate 7.2 liters per 100 kilometers.
The SQ5 comes with all-wheel drive and a torque vectoring system to distribute the drive power. The chassis is coordinated, 20-inch rims on 225/45 tires are a series-a combination that also has other Q5 variants. However, Audi only offers optional 21-inch rims with the SQ5.
The optical distinctions from the other Q5 models are subtle. The S-Line package is a series here, plus a special cooler grille with double glossy struts, aluminum look exterior, a changed rear bump catcher and the four exhausting pieces obligatory for Audis S-models. On the front flank, a “V6T” logo-previously identified the V6 petrol engines with roots compressor is emblazoned, now the V6 TDI is also meant, provided it is in an S model.
The Audi SQ5 TDI can be ordered in autumn, deliveries begin in the first quarter of the coming year. The price is 58.500 euros – a good 5.000 euros more than a Q5 3.0 TDI with the 245-hp turbodiesel, S-line packages and 20-inch rims. This is a moderate surcharge, and he could ensure that a significant proportion of Q5 registrations on the SQ5 no longer apply. The only competitor is the BMW X3 XDrive 35D, which also produces 230 kW/313 hp and with 54.900 euros is a little cheaper.
The SQ5 TDI is only the first model of a whole series sporty derivations of the Audi Q series. An SQ5 with 245 kW/333 hp compressor petrol engine is likely to follow, and the RS Q3 concept could also find its way into the series in the foreseeable future. Further SQ and RSQ types will certainly follow-especially Audi with additional Q series that listens to straight numbers and who wants to be characterized by flatter bodies than the current Q3, Q5 and Q7, to set sporty accents.
