Audi is determined to boost sales of the sportier versions that make up the Q5 family. Both the Audi SQ5 and the Audi SQ5 Sportback will see their mechanical offering enriched with the arrival of the 45 TFSI petrol engine. A mechanic that already has prices and is ready to live its commercial launch.
At the end of 2020 the new Audi SQ5 and Audi SQ5 Sportback debuted in society. Both versions are positioned as the top of the range option, in terms of exclusivity and sportiness of both models. However, for its arrival on the market, Audi
opted for a diesel engine. Yes, the mechanical offer is limited exclusively to said fuel. Although for a short time.
The Ingolstadt firm plans to introduce a second motorization in the SQ5 and SQ5 Sportback range. It is neither more nor less than a powerful gasoline engine. A most interesting option with which to capture the attention of the more traditional public who reject the idea of getting a sports car powered by a diesel engine. Everything is ready to experience the commercial launch of this new engine. What’s more, we already know their prices.
The Audi SQ5 Sportback also debuts the 45 TFSI engine

At the moment, the only motorization that can be found in the configurator of the SQ5 and SQ5 Sportback is the so-called 45 TDI. Under the hood of both models is a 3.0-liter V6 TDI engine that achieves 341 hp and 700 Nm of maximum torque. A 48 volt Light Hybrid Technology Electrified Block (MHEV). In addition, it is associated with an eight-speed Tiptronic automatic gearbox and a quattro permanent traction system.
The new 45 TFSI petrol engine also presents us with a 3.0-liter V6 engine what exceeds the 340 hp barrier And, like the aforementioned diesel block, it is electrified. Therefore, both mechanics bring with them the ECO environmental mark of the DGT (General Directorate of Traffic) with all the advantages that this implies. And it is a great incentive when choosing these high-performance SUVs. The gasoline engine is connected to a automatic gearbox and a system of quattro permanent traction.
At the aesthetic level we will not find any difference. The new gasoline SQ5 and SQ5 Sportback are characterized by a body kit designed especially for the occasion. They are fitted with large, sporty-looking rims that reveal the braking system and, what is equally important, the exhaust system with four outputs perfectly integrated into the rear diffuser, is one of the great hallmarks.
