Audi SQ5 TDI – one of the most powerful diesel-powered car

The new Audi SQ5 TDI would surely raise lots of eyebrows what with the superb specifications on paper and what it offers.


This would otherwise be the top of the range Q5 series where it comes with a 3.0 liter diesel engine that boosts out 2 turbochargers. All in all, it gets you up to 313 horses and would only need 5.1 seconds to reach the century mark.

The other cool thing about this model is that it is typically a diesel engine where the 2 turbochargers uses a flap which keeps it in line with its high performance persona. What this actually means is that it has its own specifically tuned cylinder head cooling and the timing and lifting of the intake cam shafts. On top of that, this does not mean that it will be drinking in fuel as they have ensured that performance remains a priority.

Fuel consumption is only 7.2 liters per 100 km while the engine is mated with an 8 speed automatic and Quattro AWD transmission gearbox. The AWD system model also comes with its own sports suspension which essentially lowers the car.

In terms of design, it comes with its own set of colours where one can choose between the Estoril Blue or the Panther Black body over its specifically designed grey single-frame grille with double bars layout.
