Audi unveils SQ5 TDI compact crossover at Le Mans image

Audi Ag, the German premium carmaker has just unveiled the SQ5 compact crossover at Le Mans.

The SQ5 TDI is powered by a 309bhp 3.0-litre V6 bi-turbo diesel which has a huge 650Nm of torque.
It does 0-62mph in 5.1 seconds and has a top speed of 155mph, yet also claims 39.2mpg. An eight-speed automatic transmission sends that power through the brand’s Quattro all-wheel drive system to all four wheels, with automatic torque vectoring between wheels.

The SQ5’s sport suspension lowers the body by 1.18 inches, and the standard 20-inch wheels wear 255/45 tires, with 21-inch wheels as optional.

Really, the visual differences between a Q5 equipped with the S-line package and this new SQ5 are rather subtle, which befits a true representative of Audi’s S range.

Exterior touches include front black brake calipers with S badging, a platinum gray single-frame grille, roof spoiler, modified bumpers, high-gloss paint around the windows and aluminum-look exterior mirrors.

As is typical for an S model, the interior has black trim and exudes a sporty elegance.
The headlining is optionally available in lunar silver. The power-adjustable sport seats come standard in Pearl Nappa leather/Alcantara. Leather upholstery in a choice of four colors is available as an option. Brushed aluminum inlays are standard.
