Meet the 313bhp Audi SQ5 TDI
Audi is giving petrolheads - or in this case dieselheads - a sneak peak of the new top model of its recently revamped Q5 series, the Audi SQ5 TDI.
With two turbochargers, the 3.0 TDI engine produces a 313bhp and 650Nm of torque between 1,450 and 2,800 rpm and can hit 100kph in 5.1 seconds. It has a top speed of 250kph.
The SQ5 TDI is the first S model in the history of Audi with a diesel engine and the company says it will be launched in first quarter of 2013.
As is typical for an S model, the interior has black trim, while the headlining is optionally available in lunar silver.
The power-adjustable sport seats come as standard in pearl nappa leather/alcantara. Leather upholstery in a choice of four colors is available as an option. Brushed aluminum inlays are standard, though.
The instrument dials are gray and include a 3D-design S badge, the needles are white and the pedals and shift paddles have an aluminum-look finish.
Additional visual highlights in the interior are the S gear lever knob, the S badges on the door sill trims, the start button and the specially-shaped steering wheel, the S welcome screen and the lighting package
Luggage capacity is as much as 1,560l and it has a towing capacity of up to 2.4 tonnes.
