Specifically designed for markets such as the U.S., Canada, China and others, the 2014 Audi SQ5 is powered by a 3.0L supercharged TFSI V6 engine rated at 354 horsepower. It reaches 100 km/h in 5.3 seconds on its way to a top speed of 250 km/h. Average fuel consumption amounts to 8.5L/100km.
The front grille, window surrounds and side mirrors sport an aluminum-look finish that contrasts with the two exclusive body colours -- Estoril Blue and Panther Black.
Inside, the standard sport seats are covered with a combination of Pearl Nappa leather and Alcantara, with four different hides of leather available. The instrument cluster features grey dials and white digits, while the pedals and shift paddles have a shiny aluminum-look finish.
The 2014 Audi SQ5 will land in American showrooms this summer. Canadian release dates and prices have yet to be announced.
