2014 Audi SQ5 to make North American debut in Detroit

The 2014 Audi SQ5 will make its first appearance on this continent at the NAIAS in Detroit next week.

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.
