The SQ5 gets quite a few cosmetic differences from the regular Q5

Th Audi Q5 Diesel is an SUV for those who like to revel in unabashed luxury and comfort and can also pay a hefty sum for it. Words like “fast”, “exhilarating” and “speed” are not generally associated with the car. But the German manufacturer has decided to liven up the car by putting a thumping diesel V6 engine in it and naming it SQ5. Due to this little change, the car can now achieve a top speed of 250 km/hr. That too with the great fuel economy of a diesel engine.

The car is equipped with a 3.0-litre V6 producing 340 BHP and a whopping 700 Nm of torque. This monster engine can propel the car to 100 km/hr from standstill in just 5.1 seconds. The car comes with standard Quattro all wheel drive system and 8-speed automatic gearbox. The vehicle also sports blacked out ORVMS, Quad exhausts and a rear diffuser along with gloss black 21-inch cast aluminium wheels. Inside, the vehicle gets a leather everywhere treatment along with fine Nappa leather seat covers which feature a diamond pattern in silver. The car’s Indian launch is expected sometime in the future.
