Audi SQ5 TDI Promo: First Diesel S Model

Vorsprung durch Technik is the slogan of German automaker Audi, and it means “Advancement through technology”, and this definitely holds true for their newest creation. To create the SQ5, they could have used something like the supercharged 3.0-liter of the S4 and S5.
However, 333 horsepower is only a bit more than 313 horsepower, and diesel blends itself better to an SUV. And so the sportiest version of the Q5 was fitted with the new BiTurbo V6 diesel, which packs plenty of grunt and even makes a good sound.

The new SQ5 will reach 62 mph in 5.1 seconds and is electronically limited to a 155mph (250km/h) top speed. This performance is matched to combined fuel consumption of 7.2 l/100km (32.7 mpg). Now that’s BMW-fighting talk!
