The 2014 Audi SQ5 will be taking its place among Audi’s expansive exhibition portfolio next week at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS). But this won’t be just another showpiece. Instead, Audi engineers redesigned performance-centric model inside out, literally. Originally only available in Europe with diesel driven powertrain, the 2014 Audi SQ5 will be offer worldwide later this year thanks to its new gasoline engine. Now with a TFSI 3.0-liter supercharged V6 engine, this top-of-the-line version of Q5 is capable of 0 to 62 mph in just 5.3 seconds. Its eight-speed Tiptronic transmission and Quattro all-wheel drive system keep it on the road, even while reaching speed of 155 mph.
Distinctive and exclusive interior to go along with the performance, including four different leather colors, carbon fiber inlays, and brushed aluminum finishes. There is plenty of amenities, including Internet connection through the vehicle’s infotainment system. To be available in United States, Canada, Russia, China, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, South Africa, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Chile and the Ukraine, though pricing is still undecided at this time.
