The Europe-only Audi SQ5 diesel is given the aftermarket tuner treatment thanks to ABT Sportsline.
German aftermarket tuner ABT Sportsline has recently turned its attention to the Euro market Audi SQ5, the first S model to be powered by a diesel. For the US, the SQ5 is powered by a 3.0-liter supercharged V6. Starting off with the SUV's 3.0-liter TDI oil-burner, the tuner increased output from 308 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque to 355 hp and 516 lb-ft thanks to a new boost kit. Upgraded springs were also added and the ride height was lowered.
Buyers can choose between a set of either 20" or 22" lightweight alloy wheels.The SQ5's exterior was touched up thanks to a new body kit that adds extended wheel arches, a new front bumper and grille, and a larger rear bumper. Official performance figures and pricing were not released.
