A few weeks ago, Audi unveiled the SQ5 TDI. Now it is time to see the Sportback version of the mid-size SUV.

The new 2021 Audi SQ5 Sportback TDI will come with the same layout we have seen on the regular variant of the SUV.

As a result, we have a V6 3.0 liter diesel engine which can deliver 341 horsepower and 700 Nm peak of torque. The model features an eight-speed automatic transmission and quattro all-wheel drive.

As a result, the car can run from not to 100 km/h in 5.1 seconds, while the top speed is limited to 250 km/h. Being a diesel, Audi has also installed a mild hybrid system which will help the unit to achieve better fuel consumption figures. According to Audi, the SQ5 Sportback will sip only about 7 liters/100 kilometers in the WLTP cycle.
