New Audi SQ5, hunted in Spain: the turbo power is more and more near


In the next few months will be officially presented an Audi Q5 2017 entirely renovated: the second generation of the SUV of the four rings will be based on a modular platform MLB evo that will be more rigid and lightweight, bringing the refinement in their conduct. Their external dimensions do not vary too much, with an updated design that will follow the path of the most recent models of Audi.

Next to the new Q5 will your version more sports: Audi SQ5 2017 rises to 395 HP thanks to its new engine, with a technology that will be very popular in the next few years on models of Ingolstadt.

The the engine of the Audi SQ5 2017 will again be a V6 TDI 3.0-liter, but will have a single turbo helped by a subsystem of the electric 48V with response almost instántanea: in this way, lin response to the accelerator is immediate, even at low regimes of rotation and do not appear in the usual turbo lag, because it will not need the exhaust gases to spin the turbine of the turbocharger.

And if their performance will improve, at the same time will also lower consumption thanks to a higher thermal efficiency and the system Audi Valvelift, which will be able to regulate the position of the valves in two stages depending on load and throttle regime of rotation. Many technical innovations for an SUV sporty which seeks to establish new ways: the new Audi Q5 will be presented at the Paris Salon 2016, while the SQ5 will arrive shortly after.
