Audi is proud to announce that it will be expanding its S models, starting with the launch of the SQ5 TDI Plus in October. At its core, the SQ5 TDI Plus is an SUV that has the performance levels of a sports car while the Plus version gives greater power output.
Similar to the S models, the SQ5 TDI Plus uses an all-wheel quattro permanent drive system but the main difference is that the new model uses a sport differential on its rear axle in order to distribute better its drive power to the four wheels.
The wheels in turn are 21-inch gloss black cast aluminum with a 5-twin-spoke star design. The tires come in 255/40 R21 sizes. Audi’s Plus version of the SQ5 carries the V6 biturbo TDI which has a power output of 250 kW (340 hp) from merely a three-liter displacement, made possible by an increase in the injection pressure.
Thus power is greater by 20 kW/27 hp compared to Audi’s SQ5 TDI. Maximum torque is increased to 700 Nm (516.3 lb-ft), 50 Nm (36.9 lb-ft) greater. Top speed is 250 km/h (155.3 mph) with a 0 to 100 km/h (0 to 62.1 mph) acceleration time of 5.1 seconds.
Under the New European Driving Cycle or NEDC, fuel consumption is 6.6 liters for every 100 kilometers (35.6 US mpg). The emissions’ rating meanwhile is at 174 g CO2/km which is equivalent to 280.0 g/mi.
For the Audi SQ5 TDI, the combined fuel consumption is 6.6 for every 1/100 kilometer or 35.6 US mpg, while CO2 emission is 177– 174 g/km (284.9 – 280.0 g/mi). The Plus version meanwhile has a fuel consumption of 6.7 – 6.6 for every l/100 km (35.1 – 35.6 US mpg), with CO2 emissions at 177– 174 g/km (284.9 – 280.0 g/mi).
