2017 Audi SQ7 Overview – Video
Audi’s ultimate hedge against the alternative-fuel future is offering every possible type of powertrain. In Europe, various members of the Audi lineup can run on natural gas, hydrogen, electricity, gasoline, or diesel, and there are all sorts of hybrids across varying body styles. The brand’s latest entry is a high-performance diesel SUV, the SQ7 TDI, which blends proven, decades-old technology with a complex, state-of-the-art forced-induction system. Admit it, your mutual funds aren’t this well diversified.
The SQ7’s 4.0-liter diesel V-8 makes 435 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque between 1000 and 3250 rpm by employing two turbochargers as well as, for the first time ever in a production car, an electric supercharger.
