• Audi Considering Performance SUV's? SQ5 and RSQ5 names registered

      Car and Driver is reporting that their source in Germany has learned that Audi has registered the SQ5 and RSQ5 names with the copyright authorities in Germany. This does not necessarily mean that these models are coming but definitely is a good sign. In the entry level SUV segment there is no German performance model. The M and AMG models are for the larger ML and X5/X6 models, not the X3 which is slotted against the Q5. We like that Audi is considering a performance variant of their smallest and lightest SUV. We will keep you updated on what happens but we say, bring the SQ5 and RSQ5 on!

        i doubt they can make it faster than new gen X3 , if they put a V8 in Q5, that will be something but with 3.0TFSI Audi can't make it much faster than X3 ,and Inline 5 TFSI doesn't match SUV character

        Why wouldn't the TT-RS motor match the SUV character?

        They use a 2.0T FSI now.

        I think for the Q5S the TT-RS motor would be awesome and for the RSQ5 they should use the S4 supercharged V6 or get really crazy with a V8.

        Thats funny because I just made the comment yesterday that they should stuff the 2.5L I5 into one of those small "SUVs".

        In that case.....


        Audi, please give us a TT-RS for < $50,000 with aggressive cams and a twin-scroll GTX3582r attached!


        I would literally $#@! a brick if that happened.
