ABT Sportsline is back with another upgrade program tailored to the high-performance diesel Audi SQ5 crossover. It’s a follow-up to their 2013 kit only this time they managed to extract even more power from the TDI 3.0-liter twin-turbodiesel engine which in its standard configuration is good enough for 313 PS (230 kW) and 650 Nm (479 lb-ft). ABT’s first kit took the power level to 360 PS and 700 Nm (517 lb-ft) and now the second iteration of the tuning program increases the diesel muscle to 365 PS (268 kW) and 710 Nm (524 lb-ft) which makes it even more powerful than the SQ5 TDI plus rated at 340 PS (250 kW) and 700 Nm (517 lb-ft).
We don’t know how fast the Audi SQ5 is now that it packs so much power, but it should be a bit quicker than the regular variant which completes the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) journey in 5.1 seconds and can hit an electronically-capped 155 mph (250 km/h).
Besides getting more power, the Audi SQ5 has gained a new aerodynamic body kit featuring fender extensions, new grille and skirt, rear wing, door strip attachments and several alloys in sizes from 20 to 22 inches. In addition, at an additional cost ABT Sportsline can add an adjustable suspension kit, wheel spacers, trunk mats and floor mats.
