Audi has officially unveiled the all-new 2019 SQ5 TDI. The new performance SUV follows into the footsteps of the first generation and comes with a mighty V6 3.0 liter diesel engine which can deliver 347 horsepower and an astonishing 700 Nm peak of torque.
Audi has revealed the 2013 SQ5 performance SUV at the end of last week which according to the company will go on sale early next year.
Compared to the regular Q5, the SQ5 features a sportier exterior look and various interior enhancements that reflect the vehicle’s sporty nature, and if you’ll look closely you’ll notice that some of those features include a new grille, a new tailgate, unique 20 inch alloy wheels and a lowered suspension (-30 mm).
Rumors referring to performance versions of the Audi Q5 named under the SQ5 and RSQ5 badges have circulated around the Internet for some time, some of each even mentioned them being launched as soon as 2011.
These rumors are back, as one of Car and Driver’s sources in Germany has mentioned that the German automaker has already registered the SQ5 and RSQ5 monikers. Could it be that these performance crossovers will be shown in Geneva in March?
