Audi will be introducing a new SQ5 TFSI model during this year Detroit Motor Show. The new model is powered by a free-revving, supercharged, three-liter V6 engine with a displacement of 2,995 cmc.
 
The 3.0 TFSI engine produces 260 kW (354 hp) between 6,000 and 6,500 rpm, and delivers 470 Nm (346.65 lb-ft) of torque to the crankshaft between 4,000 and 4,500 rpm. The sprint from zero to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) takes just 5.3 seconds – best in its class.
 
Top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph). The Audi SQ5 consumes on average 8.5 liters of fuel per 100 km in the NEDC (21 US mpg). This equates to CO2 emissions of 199 grams per kilometer. An eight-speed tiptronic and quattro permanent all-wheel drive with torque vectoring transfer the power of the SQ5 to the road.
 
The chassis of the Audi SQ5 lowers the body 30 millimeters (1.18 in). The springs and shock absorbers are more tautly tuned for a sporty and balanced setup. The 20-inch wheels are fitted with 255/45-series tires. The 21-inch wheels are also available. The brake calipers on the front axle sport the SQ5 badge.
 
The SQ5 is scheduled to arrive at U.S. dealerships in the third quarter of 2013. The Audi SQ5 has been designed specifically for the following markets: United States, Canada, Russia, China, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, South Africa, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Chile and the Ukraine. In Germany and many other European markets, the SQ5 TDI takes its place as the sporty top model in its series.
