Audi SQ5 TDI Plus
This 2016 we should see the new Audi Q5, the second-generation the SUV segment D of the brand of the four rings. In the same way that has happened with the last models released by Audi, the new Q5 would come with a variant of high performance, the Audi SQ5 TDI. This diesel version of high performance will bring in many new innovations and technology to the range of the SUV, doing his elements of its big brother, the Audi SQ7, the first production car with boost power.
The Audi SQ5 TDI is positioned as the more powerful alternative of the range, with a motor 3.0 V6 TDI unpublished until now. According to the head of engines from Audi, Oliver Hoffman, the power of the new Audi SQ5 could reach up to 395 horses, although it would be more likely to see the light with a more restrained 370 HP. It would, in any case, a significant power gain compared to the 326 HP of the Audi SQ5 TDI, or the 340 HP the SQ5 TDI Plus.
This power increase would be achieved, among other things, by the boost electric compressor. Currently, the SUV sports uses a V6 TDI biturbo, but in its new generation the new SQ5 TDI will have a turbo conventional and a second electric compressor powered by an electric power system of 48V. This electric compressor of the Audi SQ5 TDI will reduce the lag and the losses due to temperature, contributing to greater efficiency and better performance.
The Audi SQ5 TDI will not only continue the steps in the Audi SQ7 to boost refers. You will also receive the system Audi Valvelift System (AVS), which made the debut in the Audi also with older brother of the Q5, in the case of a system of height variable valve. Also optimize the behavior dynamics of this SUV diesel-high-performance with a game stabilizer bars active.
If we talk about performance, it is logical to expect the new Audi SQ5 TDI is an improvement in figures with respect to the current SQ5 Plus. Currently, the SUV sports is capable of doing the 0-100 km/h in 5.1 seconds, with a maximum speed electronically limited to 250 km/h. At the same time, is capable of maintaining an average consumption of 6.6 liters per 100.
