After its unveiling in Detroit last year, the Audi SQ5 has done rather well for itself scoring positive points in most reviews. Seen as how it’s a fast, techy and practical SUV, its success is easy to comprehend.
It all starts with the 3.0-liter TFSI V6 unit underneath the hood, sending 354 PS (350 HP) to all four wheels, along with 500 Nm (369 lb-ft) of torque. It can hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.4 seconds, and 60 mph (96 km/h) in 5.1 seconds. Not at all bad.
However, where some see handsomeness and elegance in its subdued looks, others see the need for something more accute. It’s not a bad-looking SUV, but it won’t get your attention either, unlike this version by Lumma Design.
The tuner gave the SQ5 a more expressive attire, thanks to the addition of the CLR 5S body kit. It consists of a front spoiler extension, wheel arch extensions front and rear, integrated side skirt under-splitters, rear skirt extension, custom diffuser, custom door paneling, square exhaust pipes with the Lumma logo, custom wheels and an optional rear spoiler lip.
All the parts are made from high quality PUR-RIM plastics (reaction injection molding) and help give this SQ5 a considerably more menacing stance, from all angles.
