In order to take on Bmw, Audi is preparing the SQ5 TDI, powered by the popular 3.0 TDI engine delivering 309bhp. This model was first previewed by the Q5 Custom Concept presented by Audi at the 2009 Worthersee Tour.

According to Autocar, the new Audi SQ5 TDI will make its first public appearance in June at the 24 Hours Le Mans endurance race, while the standard car will show up at the 2012 Paris Motor Show in September.

Besides a powerful engine, the new Audi Q5 will also receive a facelift consisting of a new set of headlights as well as minor updates. The interior will also receive a new range of steering wheels, new trim applications as well as the latest MMI a.k.a. multi-media interface.

Moreover, two new 2.0-liter four-cylinder diesel engines will be introduced, delivering 148bhp and 187bhp. The new 3.0-liter petrol engine delivering 272bhp will replace the current 3.2-litre V6.

Besides the SQ5 TDI, Audi is also planning a petrol version of the SQ5 especially for the United States market, powered by a supercharged 3.0-litre V6 delivering 325bhp.
