2013 Audi SQ5 TFSI – Having announced the all new Audi SQ5 with diesel engine back in July 2012, this year Audi finally announces the petrol version to be released at 2013 Detroit Auto Show. For you who want the all new car from Audi but are not comfortable in diesel, this one could be your choice. Unfortunately, 2013 Audi SQ5 TFSI would only be developed and marketed for US, Canada, and Chinese costumer, while the European market must be satisfied enough with the SQ5 TDI only.
Come with standard 20-inch alloy wheels and optional 21-inch alloy wheels, 2013 Audi SQ5 TFSI apparently has no major difference compared with the TDI version. You will still find the distinctive front stripes on the front part, which combined by platinum gray radiator and aluminum horizontal double bars. Those exclusive fenders and roof spoiler also still found to build a special image for the SUV. Moreover, the replacement of V6 T badges on the front fenders is done to distinguish it from the SQ5 TDI. Over all, 2013 Audi SQ5 TFSI still gets its classy and impressive look by the exclusive combination of Estoril Blue and Panther Black Crystal-finish effect along with gloss package and aluminum mirrors. That’s why this car is more stylish than 2013 Hyundai Elantra and 2013 Skoda Octavia
This SUV also still gives you a sporty feeling in its cabin. Standard black interior theme will be all yours while 2013 Audi SQ5 TFSI also offers the Moon Silver interior color as your another option. The instrument panel will be in gray color with white accents. The pedals and shift paddle will be awesome in aluminum-finish design. To enhance your comfort, this car also equipped by comfortable sport seats covered in the combination of Pearl Nappa Leather and Alcantara. In order to accommodate your needs and preference, this SUV also gives the chance for the costumers to choose another materials option available including Carbon Atlas, Piano Finnish or Layered Aluminum, and Beaufort Black wood for the trim.
From the name it is clear that the major changes of this sport car must be on the power line ups. As we said before 2013 Audi SQ5 TFSI will be equipped with 3.0 liter TFSI engine that generates 354 hp and 346 lb-ft of torque to replace the V6 turbodiesel engine. Compared to the 2014 Volkswagen iBeetle and 2013 Chevrolet Sonic Dusk engine, this petrol version seems to be has stronger performance so that you could get the extra power of 40 hp. It could run from 0-60 mph in just 5.3 seconds and reach to speed of 155 mph.
