Allan McNish Tries to Convince Us that the Audi SQ5 TDI Doesn’t Feel Like an SUV in Corners

The Audi SQ5 TDI is the first S model fitted with a diesel engine in the history of Audi. Powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter diesel engine developing 308 horsepower (313 PS), the SQ5 is capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.1 seconds and can reach an electronically-limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). Having a diesel under the hood also means that average fuel economy is very reasonable for an SUV – 7.2 liters/100 km (32.7 US mpg) to be exact.

Audi to Rely on SUVs to Become World's Top Luxury Automaker

Read more

The three premium German automakers used to be famous around the world for their fast, well-built and luxurious saloon cars, but in recent years, that perception has been considerably altered by the addition of SUVs. Audi is very keen to expand its line of Q-badged vehicles, which is currently three models-strong (Q3, Q5 and Q7).

Audi wants to Double SUV and Crossover Lineup with Q2, Q4 and Q6 Models

Many gearheads and journalists alike have whined and moaned about premium automakers diluting their brands' cachet by developing SUVs and crossovers, but the truth is, that's where the growth is these days. Just look at Porsche and the Cayenne.

Compared to its home-market rivals BMW and Mercedes, Audi was late to the party having launched its first entry in the SUV segment only eight years ago with the full-size Q7, which was followed by the compact Q5 in 2008 and Q3 in 2010.

New Audi SQ5 with 349hp 3.0-liter TSI to Debut at Detroit Auto Show

Read more

Last summer, Audi introduced its first ever S model powered by a diesel-engine, the SQ5 SUV sporting 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 TDI with a power output of 308hp (313PS) and peak torque of 650 Nm (479 lb-ft).

At the time, the Ingolstadt-based brand said that the TDI will only be offered in Europe. Audi hasn't changed its mind about the availability of the SQ5 TDI, but at the upcoming Detroit auto show, it will reveal a second iteration of the SQ5, this time powered by a supercharged gasoline engine.

Audi says this model was created specifically for the following markets: United States, Canada, China, Russia, Singapore, South Korea, South Africa, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Chile and the Ukraine, and will not be offered in Europe.

At the heart of the new SQ5 lies Audi's 3.0-liter supercharged V6 with a compressor featuring two rotors that spin at over 20,000 rpm. The TSI unit generates 349hp (354PS) between 6,000 and 6,500 rpm, and delivers 470Nm (347 lb-ft) of torque to the crankshaft between 4,000 and 4,500 rpm.

While extremely popular in Europe, for a long time, diesel-powered passenger cars were a non-entity in the U.S. automotive business. Furthermore, it was more likely to see pink flamingos parading in Times Square than a premium brand automobile with a diesel engine under its hood.

Today, things are quite different. Diesel engines are nothing like they used to be, nor are gasoline prices, so manufacturers are not afraid to add diesel variants to their U.S. line-up.

Audi's push into the U.S. diesel market will continue with the presentation of four-new models at next week's Los Angeles Auto Show. Joining the already available Q7 3.0 TDI that went on sale in America this past September, Audi will soon offer the same updated 3.0-liter V6 TDI 'clean diesel' on the A8, A7, A6 and Q5 models.

With the exception of the A8 TDI that will go on sale first in spring of 2013, the other three TDI models will arrive in U.S. dealerships in the fall of the same year.
