Audi performance SUV is surprisingly quick

Audi makes some really cool sports cars and luxury vehicles, but that's not all the brand is about. Audi also makes an interesting SUV called the Q5. At the 2013, Detroit Auto Show Audi unveiled the 2014 SQ5 performance SUV.

Performance SUVs are a bit strange in some respects because you wouldn't think of a large and bulky people hauler of being a performance vehicle for the most part. However, Audi crams a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 engine under the hood of the SQ5 and the bulky SUV can move.

The engine produces 354 hp and 347 pound-feet of torque. Audi says that the engine will push the big four-door SUV to 60 mph in 5.3 seconds. That's faster than some sports cars. The supercharged V6 is mated to an eight-speed Tiptronic transmission. Pricing and availability information for the vehicle are unknown at this time.

Car Review: 2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe

Jul 30 2014 3:03pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

LITCHFIELD HILLS, CT — If one were to judge the people here in this rolling, semi-rural part of New England — with colonial houses and American flags flying from verandas a common sight — solely by the type of car driven, the inordinate number of Subarus seen on the road might suggest they are pragmatic, preferring something sensible for the cold, snowy winters. If these hardy, practical types would like to fly more of a freak flag this coming winter, Cadillac has something extra s ...

Jul 30 2014 9:09am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Hyundai is getting serious about introducing a new compact crossover expected to slot below the Tucson. Billed as an alternative to the Buick Encore, Chevrolet Trax and Nissan Juke, Hyundai Motor America CEO Dave Zuchowski told Edmunds the new crossover “would be a vehicle really designed for Gen Y, for new first-time younger buyers” but stopped short of calling it a mini-Tucson. The project hasn’t been confirmed just yet, but if all goes to plan, it will hit dealers sometime in 2017. Spea ...
