Starting May next year, the Audi SQ5 range will welcome its newest member. More specifically, the first high-performance version of the German crossover is announced to come together with a supercharged petrol engine.
Unveiled this fall at the Paris Motor Show, the Audi SQ5 range is currently powered by a 3.0 liter V6 diesel which can use its two turbines to provide the driver with somewhere around 313 hp and 660 Nm.
The technical details also include an 8-speed triptonic gearbox, plus the legendary quattro all-wheel drive system. It goes from 0 to 60 mph in only 5.1 seconds, while its speed peaks at 155 mph. And it all comes with an average fuel consumption of 7.2 liters to 100 km.
However, for those who prefer anything but diesel, the Ingolstadt-based manufacturer is developing another engine option for the Audi SQ5 range. More specifically, when the first high-performance version German crossover will come out next year in May, it will be accompanied by a 3.0-liter supercharged V6 petrol engine which can develop up to 354 horsepower.
Like the diesel version, the new petrol-based Audi SQ5 will stand out with an aggressive aerodynamic kit, large-sized wheels (up to 20 inches) and interior design elements that combine sport and elegance.
