Never in the history of Automobile, there is never a time when the top end SUV’s are equally if not more important than the Range-topping Limousine. The Audi SQ7 is a great example of the new trend in the Automobile market. Audi SQ7 is a performance version of Audi Q7 diesel edition. Audi SQ7 is a seven-seater SUV and will be competing with the likes of its other German rival BMW X5 M50d, Porsche Cayenne Diesel and Range Rover Sport SDV8.  All the cars are very closely priced except the Range Rover Sport SDV8 with the price difference of £17,000.

 

Powering the Audi SQ7 is a 4.0-litre twin turbo diesel producing 430bhp of power. The turbos on the SQ7 works conventionally but in a tricky way. Instead of working simultaneously the turbochargers works sequentially. This way one gets all the available exhaust gas at low speeds and then the other one gets. This way they managed to reduce the turbo lag that would have been the downside for the traditional turbo-charged engines. This is not all of it there is also an Electric compressor that gives the extra boost at low revs.

The mighty V8 will be producing 430bhp and 900Nm of torque. All this power and torque is available at very low revs. The 900Nm of torque is available at 1,000 RPM. If compared the figures to its competition it is ahead by a respectable margin. With all this power and torque Audi SQ7 capable of sprinting from 0-62mph in just 4.9secs. That is fast for any standard and when you throw the weight of 2.3tonnes into the mix, it is just mind boggling. The top speed of the car is limited to 155mph. The turbos not only enhance the power, they also make the car more efficient.
