Salon de Detroit is giving enough of himself. Yesterday we saw the Audi Q8 Concept, and now we show you another novelty of the brand of the four rings. The Audi SQ5 2017 is the SUV a sports that we needed to see after the renewal of Q5 presented a few months ago. As in the previous generation, the SQ5 will continue to be the top of range, there is no RS version. As we will see below, arguments are not missing.

In the interior there will also be some innovations such as the sports seats S or sports pedals.
But what interests us is what goes under the hood. This is the V6 TFSI, a turbo engine of 3.0 liters that arrives with more power than its predecessor. It’s the same mechanics that used the S4 and S5 and develops 354 HP and 500 Nm of torque.

The consumption will not be greatly affected and is 8.3 l/100km. To improve their dynamic can add items as the air suspension adaptive or a limited-slip differential rear.
