Audi SQ5 Competition launched in Spain

The Audi SQ5 Competition has been introduced exclusively on the Spanish market. From a visual point of view, the high-performance diesel-powered crossover comes with multi-spoke 20-inch alloys and has received tinted windows, black roof rails and a sports suspension while bi-xenon headlights and LED taillights are also part of the package.

Stepping inside the cabin, it benefits from sports seats, automatic headlights, parking assistant, automatic wipers, infotainment system with a seven-inch display as well as automatic climate control.

What really sets this special edition apart is the fact that it has an uprated version of the 3.0-liter six-cylinder TDI engine which develops 326 PS (240 kW) whereas in the regular model the engine delivers 313 PS. Torque has remained the same at 650 Nm (479 lb-ft) while the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) task takes 5.1 seconds before hitting an electronically-capped 155 mph (250 km/h).

Despite these great performances, the Audi SQ5 Competition manages to remain quite frugal as fuel consumption stands at just 6.6 liters / 100 km so you get the best of both worlds.
