Audi Unveils 2014 SQ5, and It's Sweet

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.

Audi Says A TT Crossover Is Way More Likely Than A TT Sedan

Oct 2 2014 9:00am CDT | Source: Jalopnik

I found the Audi TT Sportback Concept to be an oddly appealing mix of the TT's aesthetics with some extra sedan-y practicality. But while Audi says they're eager to expand the TT lineup beyond just coupes and roadsters, a crossover SUV is likely to come before ...

To our eyes, there's often diminishing aesthetic and utilitarian returns to go along with the heightened price tags that accompany these models, but we're be ...
