2018 Audi SQ5 has been lowered by ABT Sportsline to make it look like a hatchback

Since the Audi SQ5 first came out, Bavarian tuner did nothing but think up different scenarios for this hot crossover. ABT Sportsline has been offering various upgrade packages for the latest generation. The aftermarket tuners are also revising the temporary top dog in the Q5 family with a wide array of upgrades for customers who cannot wait any longer for the Audi Sport to come out with the RS Q5.

When looking at it from the exterior, ABT gave the Audi SQ5 a new and more aggressive body kit that is wider than the original. They say that the SQ5 looks even more dominant in the rearview mirror after this upgrade. In fact, we would say that it is quite a comprehensive package with those wide hips granted by the fender extensions, together with a new front skirt and muscular side skirts that will definitely catch your attention.

Moving on to the rear, the ABT then gave the SQ5 a newly developed exhaust system with real tips covered in carbon that’s now in place of the decorative chrome housings of the standard model. The quad tips then have a pseudo diffuser that helps the crossover send out a sportier vibe that is enhanced by the prominent spoiler that’s attached to the roof.

Audi Sport, a division of Audi, has long made it known that it will be expanding its lineup in the coming years. The main focus though would be on releasing new SUVs with the RS Q5 leading the way and revealed to be already in the pipeline.

Those who are familiar with this luxurious crossover know that the first generation was never given the entire RS treatment. The company disclosed that the latest model will likely be different with the RS Q5 expected to be released sometime in 2018. The problem however is that some customers, even loyal ones, may not be willing to wait that long. This is where ABT enters the picture.

Fake quad exhaust tips were spotted on images of 2018 Audi SQ5

Reddit user Jdubbswrx spotted a rather deceptive move coming from the German automotive manufacturer Audi. He posted an image of the supposed exhaust of the new 2018 Audi SQ5 sporting fake, plastic looking exhaust tips, and it's just plain ridiculous.

Audi unveiled the new 2018 SQ5 last January at the Detroit Auto Show displaying the "Q" design language evolution with the SQ5 added to its expanding crossover and SUV lineup. The 2018 SQ5 will be powered with a different 3.0 litre TFSI twin turbo V6 engine that produces 350 hp (354PS), and 369lb-ft of peak torque that is achieved through a broad 1370 and 4500 rpm paired with an 8 speed automatic gearbox that sends enough power to all 4 wheels. The interior offers more space with regards to shoulder and rear-seat legroom and reportedly offers more cargo capacity when rear seats are folded down.

It has all the usual Audi sports trimmings including special sports seats with diamond pattern stitching. After a quick glance, the SUV looks like it is equipped with exhaust tips. In Audi's Canadian website, the German company confirmed that the car is fitted with quad tips. The company's outline summary of the SUV reads- the Q5's handsome, rugged lines are further heightened by the tradition of Audi S model. Suspensions lowered, exclusive body styling and quad exhaust tips show that the 2018 Q5 means business. But after being presented with the photograph, and upon close inspection, it seems the tips are totally fake and where the exhausts are supposed to be found are matte black plastic surrounded by silver chrome tips.

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.

After the SQ5 TDI, Audi revealed today ahead of the 2013 Detroit Auto Show the SQ5 powered by a gasoline engine. And yes, we are talking about the well-known 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 engine delivering 260 kW (354 hp) and 470 Nm (346.65 lb-ft) of torque. With these numbers, the new Audi SQ5 is able to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 5.3 seconds and has a top speed electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph).

Still, fuel consumption is 8.5 liters of fuel per 100 km in the NEDC (21 US mpg). This means CO2 emissions of 199 grams per kilometer (320.26 g/m) in the NEDC. The engine is mated to an eight-speed tiptronic gearbox. The chassis of the Audi SQ5 lowers the body 30 millimeters (1.18 in). The new SQ5 comes as standard with 20-inch wheels, but 21-inch wheels are offered as an option.

In terms of design, the new vehicle comes with a platinum gray radiator grille with horizontal double bars in aluminum look, distinctive bumpers, and a roof spoiler. The gloss package and exterior mirrors in aluminum look accentuate the windows.

The new Audi SQ5 TDI high-performance SUV is the first ever diesel-fuelled ‘S’ model to be seen on UK roads. Audi marks this milestone just six years after the Audi R10 became a part of history as the first ever sports prototype under TDI power to be a champion at Le Mans. The new high-performance SUV gives consumers a blend of 313PS and 41mpg-plus capability.

Audi has already started to take orders for this model, which has a price tag of £43,870 OTR. Deliveries in the UK will start next spring. The SQ5 TDI is able to do justice to the ‘S’ badge and also demonstrates the famous TDI frugality by using the newest 3.0-litre V6 BiTDI engine, which produces the 313PS output, delivered between 3,900 and 4,500rpm, with a peak 650 Nm of torque relayed between 1,450 and 2,800 rpm.

SQ5 TDI is able to channel its power through an eight-speed tiptronic automatic transmission and via quattro all-wheel-drive. This enables the model to go from zero to 62mph in just 5.1 seconds and proceed to a limited 155mph top speed. The model utilizes innovative thermal management on the engine start-stop system and a regulated oil pump, enabling it to return 41.5mpg, under the official combined cycle test, resulting to a CO2 emissions level of 179g/km.

Earlier this year, Audi unveiled the SQ5 TDI, the new top model of the Q5 model series but for this year’s Paris Motor Show the German manufacturer will bring a new version of the Q5: this is the SQ5 TDI Audi Exclusive Concept. The so-called concept will feature new design solutions in the interior and an exclusive exterior finish and Audi will manufacture only 50 units beginning the first quarter of 2013.

The bad news is that this limited edition will be priced at €92,000 in Germany, which is quite a lot because a standard SQ5 TDI will be available for €58,500. Still, don’t think that for these money you won’t get anything because you are wrong. The SQ5 TDI Audi exclusive concept is finished in the Aral Blue crystal effect exterior color, which was developed for the exclusive, limited production model.

Moreover, the car features exterior mirrors with aluminum look while the rear shows four exhaust tailpipes. Inside, we find a leather multifunction sports steering wheel, a gear leather wrapped in Fine Nappa accentuated with contrasting stitching in snow white, black sport seats covered in Fine Nappa leather which feature the same contrasting stitching in snow white and black, woven leather in the center section of the seats (first time that woven leather has been used in a production vehicle).

As a result, it can push the car from zero to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in 5.1 seconds and to a top speed of zero to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in 5.1 seconds.

Meanwhile, average fuel consumption is 7.2 liters per 100 km (32.67 US mpg). In terms of design, the Audi SQ5 TDI comes with a platinum gray single-frame grille with its galvanized double bars in an aluminum-look finish, a roof spoiler and the modified bumpers.

It appears that Audi is planning hotter versions of the Q5 Crossover, as the German manufacturer has just registered SQ5 and RSQ5 monikers. Still, this doesn’t mean that we will actually see these models, but we have to admit that there is a small chance to see a more powerful version of the Q5, as the upcoming Porsche Cajun will be based on the Q5. Furthermore, the Porsche Cajun is expected to have a top of the line version more powerful than the Audi Q5.

For those who don’t know, Audi unveiled two years ago at the 2009 Wörthersee Tour the Q5 Custom Concept, which previewed a more powerful version of the Q5, but then the financial crisis came and the German manufacturer decided to drop that plan. The Q5 Custom Concept was powered by the 3.0 TFSI V6 engine, found also on the Audi S4, delivering an impressive 408 hp (still, on the S4 the engine delivers 333 hp).

With these number, the car sprints to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.4 seconds, while the top speed is governed at 250 km/h (155 mph). Compared to the production model, the concept featured a track that was widened by 90 millimeters (3.54 in) and a ride height lowered by 60 millimeters (2.36 in).
