Audi SQ5
Debuting at the Detroit show, the high-performance SQ5 goes straight to the top of the Q5 lineup. The SQ5 derives power from a turbocharged 3.0 TFSI V6 engine producing 354 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque, combined with an 8-speed tiptronic transmission and quattro all-wheel drive. The SQ5 accelerates from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.4 seconds. The 5-link suspension includes adaptive damper control integrated into the Audi drive select system, and it can be upgraded with optional adaptive air suspension, a sport differential and dynamic steering. Standard wheels are 20-inch cast aluminum with 255/45R20 tires; five different 21-inch wheel styles are optional. The standard 6-piston front brake calipers are black, with red as an option.
