The new Audi SQ5 TDI: Instant opening interjection to electric powered compressor

Posted on 21. Feb, 2019 by in Audi Canada

The 3.0 V6 TDI engine in a new Audi SQ5 TDI combines present and autarchic appetite with high efficiency. 255 kW (347 hp) and 700 Nm (516.3 lb-ft) – this vast torque is accessible invariably opposite a extended operation from 2,500 to 3,100 rpm. The V6 diesel accelerates a sports SUV to highway speed in 5.1 seconds on a approach to an electrically singular tip speed of 250 km/h (155.3 mph). In a NEDC it consumes between 6.6 – 6.8 liters of diesel per 100 kilometers (35.6 – 34.6 US mpg), analogous to 172 – 177 grams of CO2 per kilometer (276.8 – 284.9 g/mi). The SQ5 TDI is approved according to a Euro 6d-temp glimmer standard.

Audi has evenly polished a expostulate judgment from a full-size SQ7 TDI* for a new SQ5 TDI. The 48-volt categorical electrical complement includes an electric powered compressor (EPC) and a amiable hybrid system. Energy is stored in a compress lithium-ion battery with an electrical ability of 10 Ah located underneath a luggage cell floor. An AC/DC converter connects a required 12-volt electrical system.

New partner for a turbocharger: a EPC
The electric powered compressor is a ideal partner for a turbocharger. It helps out whenever a empty gas upsurge provides too small appetite to expostulate a turbocharger, i.e. when starting off and accelerating in a low-rev operation adult to 1,650 rpm. High torque is accessible immediately with no turbo loiter whenever a motorist needs it, possibly starting off, flitting or exiting a curve. In bland pushing situations, a early and quick torque growth done probable by a record keeps revs and fuel expenditure low.

The electric powered compressor is located in a intake atmosphere trail downstream of a intercooler and tighten to a engine. If a bucket direct from a accelerator is high though there is still too small boost from a turbocharger, a EPC comes into play. A compress electric engine with an outlay of 7 kW accelerates a compressor circle to 65,000 rpm in roughly 300 milliseconds, producing a relations boost vigour of 1.4 bar.

Recuperation, coasting and well-spoken starts: MHEV technology
The MHEV complement (mild hybrid electric vehicle) in a new Audi SQ5 TDI can revoke real-world fuel expenditure by as most as 0.7 liters per 100 kilometers. At a core is a belt alternator-starter (BAS) connected to a crankshaft. During deceleration, it can recuperate adult to 12 kW of energy. This electrical appetite is stored in a lithium-ion battery, from where it is boldly distributed to a consumers in a electrical system.

If a motorist rises off a accelerator during a speed between 55 and 160 km/h (34.2 and 99.4 mph), a new Audi SQ5 TDI can, depending on Audi expostulate name environment and pushing situation, possibly recuperate, hurl during idle with a purchase unattached or seashore with a engine off for adult to 40 seconds. The BAS restarts a engine a subsequent time a accelerator is depressed, and that noticeably faster and some-more uniformly than a required starter. MHEV record allows for start/stop operation during a speed of adult to 22 km/h (13.7 mph). If a automobile is versed with a adaptive journey control (ACC), a engine restarts while a stop pedal is still vexed as shortly as a automobile in front of a SQ5 TDI starts to move.

Optimized for autarchic pulling appetite and limit efficiency: a engine
This tip outlay chronicle of a 3.0 V6 TDI engine has been serve grown and mutated in countless areas. Crankshaft, pistons, joining rods and oil government have all been specifically configured for a some-more difficult demands. The thermal government complement is rarely versatile. The crankcase and a cylinder heads have their possess cooling circuits, permitting a engine oil to comfortable adult quick after a cold start. The coolant upsurge is destined to a oil cooler, a EPC, a BAS and a turbocharger as needed. The vast empty gas turbocharger with non-static turbine geometry (VTG) produces a relations boost vigour of adult to 2.4 bar. A sound actuator in a empty complement gives a TDI a grave sound.

Fast, well-spoken and efficient: a eight-speed tiptronic
A quick and smooth-shifting eight-speed tiptronic handles a appetite transmission. Its revoke gears underline short, sporty ratios, while a tip gears are prolonged to revoke revs and fuel consumption. New minute solutions capacitate a tiptronic to work effectively with MHEV technology. If a competition SUV is rolling and a engine is waiting or close off entirely, a purchase in a executive delivery opens and interrupts a appetite connection. An electric oil siphon enables a tiptronic to rivet a rigging while coasting that will be indispensable during restart.

quattro and competition differential
Like each S indication from Audi, a new SQ5 TDI comes customary with quattro permanent all-wheel drive. In normal pushing conditions, a self-locking core differential distributes torque between a front and behind spindle in a 40:60 ratio. When trip is detected, a infancy of a appetite is destined to a spindle with a improved traction. Depending on a pushing situation, a limit of 70 percent can upsurge to a front or 85 percent to a rear.

Wheel-selective torque control, an intelligent program duty complementing a quattro drive, is active on all kinds of surface. During energetic cornering, it brakes a wheels on a inside of a bend minimally before they start to slip. The appetite is so destined around a differential to a circle with a improved traction. The sports SUV turns into a bend ever so slightly. Its self-steering duty stays neutral for a prolonged time, and doing stays stable, accurate and agile.

Customers can also sequence a SQ5 TDI with a sport differential on a behind axle. It actively distributes a appetite between a behind wheels during energetic cornering. The competition differential literally pushes a automobile into a curve, snapping understeer in a bud. It sends some-more torque to a outward behind circle when accelerating out of parsimonious radii to serve urge agility.

Sporty and precise: a framework of a new SQ5 TDI
Sophisticated five-link cessation during a front and behind lays a substructure for a sporty pushing characteristics of a new Audi SQ5 TDI. Audi also offers discretionary energetic steering, that uses aria call gearing to change a steering ratio over a really far-reaching operation as a duty of speed and steering angle. The cessation with check control comes customary in a new SQ5 TDI. It lowers a physique by 30 millimeters (1.2 in) compared with a Q5 with customary suspension. It offers a quite far-reaching widespread between comfort and dynamics.

Along with a competition differential, engine, steering and tiptronic, a dampers are integrated into a Audi expostulate name energetic doing system. With Audi expostulate select, a motorist can change a duty of these systems around mixed profiles. Audi also offers a S-specific adaptive atmosphere cessation as another option. It adapts not only a damping though also a body’s trim to a particular pushing situation.

The new Audi SQ5 TDI comes customary with 20-inch expel aluminum wheels and 255/45-series tires. 21-inch wheels are accessible as an option. There is also a choice of 3 opposite 21-inch circle designs from Audi Sport GmbH. Aluminum six-piston calipers on a front spindle hold steel discs with a hole of 375 millimeters (14.8 in). The black calipers (red optional) competition S logos.

Convenient and safe: a motorist assistance systems
The new Audi SQ5 TDI offers a extended portfolio of motorist assistance systems. The predictive potency partner provides specific tips to assistance a motorist save fuel. Audi active line support creates it easier to stay in your line and can hoop some of a steering charge in slow-moving traffic.  The stretch warning arrangement alerts a motorist when a stretch to a automobile forward drops next a protected distance. These and other functions are brought together in a discretionary Tour support package.

The discretionary functions behind cranky trade assist, exit warning, collision deterrence support and spin support also raise reserve in bland driving. The same relates to a pre clarity systems; Audi pre clarity city comes as standard. It warns a motorist about pedestrians and vehicles, and if required triggers involuntary puncture braking within complement limits. Park assist, camera-based trade pointer approval and mountain skirmish control spin out a discretionary features.

Logical and intelligent: controls infotainment and Audi connect
The MMI control judgment in a Audi SQ5 TDI is easy to know and facilities an intelligent giveaway content hunt function. The natural-language voice control duty also recognizes inputs from bland speech. The third control spin is a leather multifunction steering wheel, that is used to work a motorist information complement or a discretionary Audi practical cockpit. Depending on a setting, a 12.3-inch arrangement shows an S-specific mode centered around a rev counter. Audi supplements this with a head-up display.

The infotainment lineup in a Audi SQ5 TDI follows a modular concept. At a tip is MMI navigation and with MMI all-in-touch and an 8.3-inch display. A customary member of a tip complement is Audi connect, that connects a SQ5 TDI to a internet around LTE and provides a WiFi hotspot for a passengers’ mobile devices.

The Audi phone box connects smartphones to a on-board receiver by near-field coupling and concurrently charges them inductively regulating a Qi standard. The Audi smartphone interface brings Apple CarPlay and Android Auto into a car. For quite perceptive hi-fi fans, a Bang  Olufsen Sound System with 3D sound is available.

Sportily distinctive: a extraneous design
Numerous extraneous settlement sum spirit during a sporty impression of a Audi SQ5 TDI. The confidant bumpers underline strongly contoured atmosphere inlets adult front and a diffuser insert with a honeycomb grille during a rear. The Singleframe grille facilities double aluminum slats and resisting trim elements in twilight gray matt. The S trademark with red rhombus is used in countless locations to set additional accents.

The headlights and behind lights of a Audi SQ5 TDI come customary in LED technology; a energetic spin signals during a front and behind send observable signals. The extraneous counterpart housings and a grip on a diffuser competition a shining, aluminum-look finish. Door trim strips in a physique tone underscore a sportiness. The extraneous tone panther black is indifferent exclusively for a Audi SQ5 TDI.

Elegant ambiance: a interior
The dark-toned interior welcomes a motorist and passengers with bright doorway sills temperament disdainful S logos. Contrasting stitching on a leather steering circle and competition seats conveys a energetic and superb ambiance. The S competition seats in leather and Alcantara can be upgraded to excellent Nappa leather with rhombus settlement and a pneumatic massage function. Brushed aluminum inlays are standard, with superb timber applications or an disdainful CO inlay accessible as options. The change paddles on a steering circle competition an aluminum-look finish; there are immaculate steel applications on a pedals and footrest.

The discretionary behind chair dais and in a new Audi SQ5 TDI is separate into 3 segments. Longitudinal and chair behind angle composition are optional. The luggage cell has a simple ability of 550 liters (19.4 cu ft), that can be increasing to 1,55sss0 liters (54.7 cu ft) by folding down a behind chair backrests.

Equipment
Standard apparatus in Germany includes 20-inch expel aluminum wheels in a 5-twin-spoke star design, LED headlights and cessation with S-specific check control. The eight-speed tiptronic transmission, quattro permanent all-wheel drive, competition seats in leather/Alcantara and a three-spoke, leather-covered multifunction steering circle are also customary equipment. The new Audi SQ5 3.0 TDI will start nearing during German dealerships in Summer 2019 and have a bottom cost of 67,750  euros.
