Sales of diesel vehicles have hit a big blow in Europe after the Volkswagen Group emissions scandal.But it is still a market segment that interests TDI cars.

The Volkswagen Group’s main brand, Audi, is convinced that a high-performance diesel car can make rage on today’s vehicle market.

Meet the Audi SQ5 TDI, which in the heart holds the 3.0-liter V6 engine that produces 342 horsepower.

The main 48V power system is set as standard along with an electric compressor. The electrified component stays there to avoid turbine delays. Audi describes the EPC as the ideal turbocharger.

The SQ5 needs 5.1 seconds to reach 100 km/h, to which Audi refers to “highway speeds”.

The electric motor not only provides more performance than conventional engines but also saves fuel. Audi promises fuel savings will be 0.7 liters/100 km.

The Audi SQ5 TDI has the Quattro all-wheel drive standard system, which can deliver 70% power to front tires or 85% to the rear axle. The car takes the engine’s power from a eight-speed truck.

As with any other Audi Sport model, styling updates also come to SQ5. The premium SUV looks more aggressive with 20-inch tires, or buyers can choose the 21-inch tire kit at an extra cost.

The Audi SQ5 TDI will be available this summer at a price of €67,750.
