Anja driving the Audi SQ5

Audi SQ5

Who says that driving fast cars is only for men is completely mistaken. Also women have fun to accelerate and to feel 2 tons weight under their control. For me, it was an exciting day to test the new Audi Q5 models – especially the Audi SQ5 3.0 TDI with 230 kW (313 hp) and 8 speed tiptronic quattro.
Having heard the optical improvements and technical changes of the new Q5 series during the press release at the Audi Forum in the Munich Airport, we had the chance to test-drive these vehicles.

Our first test car was the Audi SQ5 TDI that accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 5.1 seconds. I can guarantee you at this high speed you are pushed deep into your car seat. This speed up is possible, although it is a Diesel engine – not typical for racing cars. In fact, the Audi SQ5 is the first S-model in the history of Audi with a diesel engine. But while driving the car, you don’t feel many differences between the sporty diesel engine and a gas engine. We made many drive off experiments, you can find here.
The exterior of the Audi SQ5 is a mixture of the normal SUV form of Audi and of elements of a racing car. The SQ5 has the S-typical features like the silver side mirrors, the SQ5 graphic character and the thick dual tailpipes. Out of the exhaust pipe comes an expressing engine sound of the V6 Diesel. We tried to capture the sound, but of course it sounds much better in real than on video.
Inside the car one can find modern design elements like the new wood decor. The coriaceous sport seats are near to the body and give the feeling of safety. The high position due to the high architecture enlarges the safety and you have great overviews of the street.

Shortly summarized, the Audi SQ5 is a car with fantastic equipment that has a high developed engine inside. Here are some pictures of the exterior and interior of the car:
