Revised 2013 Audi Q5 gest Some Tuning Love from ABT Sportsline

Every time the Volkswagen and Audi brands come out with a new model or even a limited edition, ABT Sportsline is sure to follow up with its own tuning take. The facelifted Audi Q5 is no exception with the German tuning firm releasing a package for the compact crossover that increases output and gives its exterior a different look. Currently, ABT’s performance upgrades are limited to the diesel-powered models of the Q5 series, with the enhanced 2.0-liter TDI laying down 202hp (205PS) and 420Nm (310 lb-ft), up from the stock model’s 175hp (177PS) and 380Nm (280 lb-ft), and the 3.0-liter V6 TDI, 278hp (282PS) and 630Nm (465 lb-ft), up from 242hp (245PS) and 580Nm (428 lb-ft). Previewed in these renderings are ABT’s cosmetic offerings that include 20- to 22-inch alloy wheels, and an aero package with a bespoke front grille, fender extensions, front apron, side skirts, a roof spoiler and a rear diffuser. A lowered sports suspension and an exhaust system with quad pipes round out the kit.
