The Audi SQ5 TDI debuted yesterday before the start of the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Wearing a slightly more aggressive outfit, the Audi SQ5 TDI gets a refreshed front fascia which includes new bumpers, new grille and a spoiler mounted at the tailgate.

The suspension has been tuned and the body has been lowered by 3cm to lend the car sharper handling.

Other body fitments specific to the Audi SQ5 TDI are the 20-inch alloys and a aluminum-like side mirror covers. Audi has not changed the interiors largely, fitting it with sport seats, revising the instrumentation and sprinkling S badges around the cabin.

The Audi SQ5 TDI is definitely defined by the change under the bonnet. It is powered by a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 TDI engine that develops 309 hp/650 Nm. The car is driven using an 8-speed tiptronic transmission that puts the power on the road using the quattro all-wheel drive.

The performance figures have gained, 0-100 kph now comes in just 5.1 seconds, and the car accelerates to 250kph. As this is a diesel, the fuel economy is much better to look at, standing at 13.8kpl.

The Audi SQ5 TDI hits the global markets in 2013, starting from 40.9 lakhs.
