The Audi SQ5 TDI has received more power courtesy of German tuner B&B.
The standard version of the twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 TDI engine produces 313 HP (230 kW) and 479 lb-ft (650 Nm) of torque. B&B considered it not enough so they prepared a three-stage upgrade kit which begins with a minor increase in boost pressure of 0.15 bar and revised electronics, increasing output to 340 HP (250 kW) and 537 lb-ft (728 Nm). Stage 1 is priced at 1,498 EUR.
Stage 2 costs 1,698 EUR and includes additional electronics optimization which lifts power to 365 HP (268 kW) and 553 lb-ft (750 Nm). Lastly, Stage 3 is 4,950 EUR and brings custom injection components, new intercooler, air ducts and intake paths. After making the changes, the V6 TDI is capable of delivering 395 HP (290 kW) and 590 lb-ft (800 Nm).
Thanks to these tweaks, the Audi SQ5 TDI completes the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run in 4.7 seconds (0.5s quicker) and can reach a top speed of 168 mph (270 km/h), up from 155 mph (250 km/h).
The spring set (398 EUR) lowers the sporty crossover by 25mm and reduces body roll. There's also a custom adjustable coilover suspension for 1,698 EUR and a stainless steel exhaust system (1,950 EUR).
