The Q8 concept attracted the attention of the users at the Detroit Auto Show, and the second-generation SQ5 was also appreciated by the users.
“How fast can an SUV be?” has been asked for a long time, and Audi is one of the brands that we need to thank for the break. Audi brings together the new generation “high-speed” users within the Detroit Auto Show, giving the signals that the second-generation SQ5 will continue to push the left lanes. The 2018 SQ5 is a combination of Audi’s cutting-edge technology and lightweight design.
Performance / Infrastructure
Since the automobile we are talking about is a performance model, let’s take a closer look at the developments made primarily mechanically. Audi has a 3.0-liter twin-scrool V6 turbo engine under the bonnet of the SQ5 with variable valve timing. Though there is no change in the power of 354 hp compared to the supercharged engine of the previous generation, we see that the maximum torque is increased by 30 Nm to a total of 500 Nm as a result of the improvements made. 14 kg lighter than the new version, this engine has significant improvements in the ability to maximize the power generated by renewed cylinder blanks.
Combined with Audi’s eight-speed automatic transmission, the SQ5 can reach from 0 to 100 seconds in 5.4 seconds, which is 0.4 seconds faster than the previous generation. When we look at the maximum speed value, we see an electronically limited hourly value of 250 kilometers. Quattro’s four-wheel-drive system, which is identified with the brand’s own name, is equipped in the SQ5’s adaptive suspension, as well as an electronic system that delivers all the power when needed. The systems in which Audi’s driving preference infrastructure is involved operate in coordination by sensing motor and gear reactions.
The front and rear bumpers in the standard version of the SQ5 bring the sporty additions together with the engine option as well as the first parts coming out specially. The large air intakes on the front reflect the character of the vehicle and the four exhausts on the rear complements the overall design. When we enter the 2017 SQ5, we encounter the Alcantara and the S-shaped seats. Users can change these seats to Nappa leather upholstery at extra cost.
At the center of the SQ5’s interior, which has an 8.3-inch touch screen with MMI navigation support, Audi offers a private living experience for the virtual cockpit experience. Audi, who put Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, offer the sport mode option exclusively for the SQ5. In addition to these two screens, the head up display screen with driver assistant information and the Bang & Olufsen sound system SQ5 are standard equipment. The price of the second-generation SQ5, which will be available for sale in the 2018 model year, is not yet known.
