New Audi SQ5 TDI is more powerful, sporty and efficient than the first generation

New Audi SQ5

New Audi SQ5 TDI is more powerful, sporty, and efficient than the first generation. Its V6 diesel engine delivers the power smoothly and forcefully.

It is clear that although they are less sought after than before, diesel engines are desirable in terms of efficiency and performance. If not, Audi would not continue betting on this technology, as it does now with the new SQ5 TDI.

This time, the new generation of this version, which on its debut in 2012, became the first S with diesel mechanics, stands out for having a sportier appearance, outstanding power, and great fuel efficiency,  considering the power it delivers.

What is the best thing about the Audi SQ5 TDI?

Unfailingly, the most striking thing about the new Audi SQ5 TDI is the 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 engine producing 341 hp and 516 pound-feet of torque, available between 1,750 and 3,250 rpm.

Using this power, the sportiest version, for the moment, of the Q5 can accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in just 5.1 seconds, while the maximum speed is restricted to 250 km / h.

Because the six-cylinder engine has the 48-volt Mild Hybrid (MHEV) system, the truck can roll smoothly into coasting mode with the engine off for up to 40 seconds, after which the engine restarts.

In addition to this system, the engine integrates an electric compressor, which activates the turbocharger when exhaust gas flow does not have enough energy. With this help, turbo-lag is completely eliminated, allowing immediate response when starting or at low revs.
