ABT Sportline, that Audi tuner who always maintains a balance between power and style, has come up with an upgrade kit for the SQ5 SUV. With model Audi has attempted, somewhat in vain, to make the Q5 less dull and boring. What ABT Audi SQ5 does is show them how it’s done.
So right off the bat the tuner gets busy with the engines in both diesel and petrol variants and gives them a swift kick in the backside. The 313 horsepower diesel in the TDI Plus model now has 360 hp and a torque of 700 Nm (up from 650), while the 3.0 liter TFSI petrol unit gets a boost from 326 hp to a nice and round 380 horsepower, complemented with 780 Nm (up from 700 Nm) of peak torque.
With the power taken care of the tuner set about improving the aesthetics as well as dynamics of ABT Audi SQ5. So a kit was designed and fashioned for the car, consisting of front skirt, front grille, door strip attachments, fender extensions and a rear wing, and it was paired with a set of ABT Sportline wheels, which can choose from the CR, DR, ER-C and FR series and in sizes 20, 21 or even 22 inch. ABT Sound Control and height adjustable suspension system are among the other highlights of the program.
