Here’s the new-generation version of the Audi SQ5, a model heading to Australia later in the year.
Coming with a new 3.0 litre TFSI V6 engine, Audi’s sporty SUV model promises 260kW and 500Nm.
A new engine technology being introduced in the V6 engine alters the compression ratios to achieve maximum efficiency.
The end result being fuel consumption of as low as 8.3L/100km.
That fuel economy also assisted by way of a hefty 14-kilogram engine weight saving over the unit in the current model, overall the new SQ5 enjoys a total weight reduction of 35kgs.
An eight-speed auto transmission will feature as standard and power is delivered to all four wheels via the Audi quattro AWD system.
Set to arrive in Australia in the second half of the year, we will bring you Australian pricing and specification details for the 2018 Audi SQ5 when confirmed by Audi Australia.
