Not to say your mistaken but yes this was on the Original I posted thank you for pointing this out.

Audi bringing SQ5 with supercharged 354 HP V6 3.0-liter TFSI to Detroit
2013 Audi SQ5 with 3.0-liter V6 TSI engine



Available in select markets

Audi has announced plans of bringing a new version of the SQ5 powered by a TFSI engine to the Detroit Motor Show.

It turns out previous reports were true and the Audi SQ5 will be available in select markets with a V6 3.0-liter TFSI gasoline (petrol) engine. The supercharged power unit develops 354 HP (260 kW) between 6,000 rpm and 6,500 rpm and has a peak torque of 346 lb-ft (470 Nm) available between 4,000 rpm and 4,500 rpm. It needs 5.3 seconds to complete the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run and has an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h).

Power is sent to the quattro permanent all-wheel drive system via an 8-speed tiptronic transmission. Fuel consumption is rated at 8.5 liters / 100 km in the NEDC or 21 mpg US with CO2 emissions of 199 g/km. It rides on a 30mm (1.2 inches) lowered chassis with more tautly tuned springs and shock absorbers and as standard comes with 20-inch alloys (21-inch available) wrapped around in 255/45 tires.

Both the interior and exterior mirror the SQ5 TDI, with a platinum gray radiator grille, roof spoiler, bespoke bumpers, along with aluminum pedals and shift paddles, with the interior also receiving power-adjustable sport seats covered by Pearl Nappa leather and Alcantara.

The 2013 Audi SQ5 TFSI is scheduled to hit U.S. dealerships in the first quarter of this year and will be sold in other markets such as Canada, South Africa, China, Russia, South Korea, Singapore, Brazil, Mexico, Chile, Argentina, Ukraine and Chile.

Pricing will be announced soon.

PRESS RELEASE FROM AUDI

Audi SQ5 now with gasoline engine and 354 dynamic hp
  • SQ5 with 3.0 TFSI engine at the Detroit Auto Show
  • From zero to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 5.3 seconds
  • 250 km/h (155 mph) top speed

The Audi SQ5 with 3.0 TFSI engine

The new Audi SQ5 shown at the Detroit Auto Show is the first ever to be powered by a gasoline engine - in this case one producing 260 kW (354 hp) and 470 Nm (346.65 lb-ft) of torque. The new top-of-the-line model, which was designed specifically for markets such as the United States, Canada and China, uses a 3.0 TFSI engine with forced induction. It sprints from zero to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 5.3 seconds on its way to a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).

The new SQ5 is powered by a free-revving, supercharged, three-liter V6 engine with a displacement of 2,995 cc. Its compressor sits in the 90-degree V of the cylinder banks and is belt-driven by the crankshaft. Two rotors inside the supercharger spin at over 20,000 rpm. The air gap between them is just a few thousandths of a millimeter. The supercharger compresses the intake air to as much as 0.8 bar; two intercoolers then cool it for greater power.

The compressor is located downstream of the throttle valve. Its drive requires little engine power, as the density of the intake air is very low at loads below the supercharging level and when coasting. Torque develops early and quickly due to the short gas paths downstream of the supercharger. Various measures dampen compressor noise. A balance shaft in the engine's alloy crankcase provides for greater smoothness. Adjustable intake camshafts and flaps in the intake ports provide for good charging efficiency in the combustion chambers.

The 3.0 TFSI engine produces 260 kW (354 hp) between 6,000 and 6,500 rpm, and delivers 470 Nm (346.65 lb-ft) of torque to the crankshaft between 4,000 and 4,500 rpm. The sprint from zero to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) takes just 5.3 seconds - best in its class. Top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph). The Audi SQ5 consumes on average 8.5 liters of fuel per 100 km in the NEDC (21 US mpg). This equates to CO2 emissions of 199 grams per kilometer (320.26 g/m) in the NEDC.

An eight-speed tiptronic and quattro permanent all-wheel drive with torque vectoring transfer the power of the SQ5 firmly to the road. The fast-shifting automatic transmission offers two modes, and the driver can also switch gears manually via the standard shift paddles on the steering wheel.

The chassis of the Audi SQ5 lowers the body 30 millimeters (1.18 in). The springs and shock absorbers are more tautly tuned for a sporty and balanced setup. The 20-inch wheels are fitted with 255/45-series tires; 21-inch wheels are available. The brake calipers on the front axle sport the SQ5 badge. The electromechanical steering not only plays a major role in the efficiency of the SQ5, it also provides very precise road feel. Audi also offers the optional dynamic steering with a steplessly variable ratio. Control of it is integrated in the optional Audi drive select system, which allows the driver to switch among several modes in various systems.

The platinum gray radiator grille with its horizontal double bars in aluminum look, the distinctive bumpers and the roof spoiler are particularly eye-catching. V6 T badges adorn the front fenders. The gloss package and exterior mirrors in aluminum look accentuate the windows. In addition, there are two exclusive crystal-effect finishes: Estoril Blue and Panther Black.

Sportiness carries over to the interior. The instruments feature gray dials and white numerals; the pedals and shift paddles have a shiny aluminum-look finish.

The interior is bathed in black, with the headlining optionally available in Moon Silver. The standard power-adjustable sport seats are covered with a combination of Pearl Nappa leather and Alcantara, with four different colors of leather optional. The standard inlays are brushed aluminum. Options include Carbon Atlas, Piano finish or layered aluminum and wood in Beaufort black.

The SQ5 is scheduled to arrive at U.S. dealerships in the third quarter of 2013. The list of standard equipment is extensive. In addition to the aforementioned features, there are also xenon plus headlights with LED daytime driving lights, a stainless-steel loading-sill protector and a driver information system with color display. The luggage compartment offers up to 1,560 liters (59.33 cu ft) of capacity.

Audi can supply this dynamic SUV with an array of optional assistance and infotainment systems. MMI navigation plus and the Bluetooth online car phone provide the Internet services from Audi connect to the vehicle.

The Audi SQ5 has been designed specifically for the following markets: United States, Canada, Russia, China, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, South Africa, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Chile and the Ukraine. In Germany and many other European markets, the SQ5 TDI takes its place as the sporty top model in its series.

Much better idea than the diesel been offered in the UK ones
Comparison engines in SQ5 : TDI and TFSI

SQ5 3.0TFSI 260 kW (354 hp) 470 Nm /4000-4500 rpm 0-100 km/h 5.3s

SQ5 3.0TDI 230 kW (313 HP) 650 Nm /1450-2800 rmp 0-100 km/h 5,1s

TDI though it has 41 less horsepower has better acceleration from 0-100 km / h

This is due to the high torque TDI 650Nm comparing with 470 Nm .

Torque is the one who is responsible for the acceleration

No its not, a tractor has 2000Nm or even more but the 0-60 speed on that is never!
0-60 is a combination many factors, both HP and Nm.
My R8 has less Nm but is much faster.

Engine horsepower is measured using a dynamometer. The dynamometer places a load on the engine and measures the twisting force the engine crankshaft places against the load. What the dynamometer is really doing, however, is measuring the torque output of the engine. In a vehicle, torque is measured at various engine speeds, or revolutions per minute (RPM). These two numbers are fed into a formula (torque times RPM divided by 5,252) to arrive at a HP number. HP is determined from torque because torque is 'easier to measure'. Torque is defined specifically as a rotating force that may or may not result in motion. It's measured as the amount of force multiplied by the length of the lever through which it acts. Torque can be generated without moving an object. However, when it does move an object, it then becomes "work," and this is what most people think of when they think of torque (usually in terms of towing). The more torque produced by an engine, the more work potential it has.

To understand this, think of the difference between and race car and a tractor. The race car develops an enormous amount of horsepower, but the torque is used for speed through gearing. There's not a lot of work needed, in a relative sense, to push a race car forward, so less work is accomplished, leaving more power for speed.
A tractor, on the other hand, may have the same size engine producing the same amount of horsepower. That horsepower is harnessed for doing work through gearing. The tractor can't reach high speeds, but it can pull and push huge amounts of weight

The TDi feels furious as the rev range is so sort, so you get a BURST of power then nothing.
I digress, my point was a simple one - give people a choice.

You compare tractors and cars ??
Tractor has only 2000Nm. Perhaps it is better tank because he has 1500HP and 4000 Nm or Cat 797 with 4060HP and 3200Nm
Of course I'm kidding but your comparison not suitable

You are right, but the torque is more important , of course it is essential motor power
How do you explain that diesel engine that has less 41HP has better acceleration
An example of the gasoline engine and diesel engine of the same displacement and power
Diesel will always be better in acceleration 80 - 120 km/h in 4th/5th gear due to higher torque. Of course this is not a rule, but in this case is I mean the standard motors not sports engine as R8 or similar
Car of the same or less power has a better performance if have a higher torque

More examples of engines with higher torque with the same or better performance
A6:
2.8 FSI 150 (204) kW (PS) 280Nm 0-100km/h 7.9s
3.0 TDI 150 (204) kW (PS) 400Nm 0-100km/h 7.6s

3.0 TFSI 228 (310) kW (PS) 440Nm 0-100km/h 5.5s
3.0 TDI 230 (313) kW (PS) 650nm 0-100km/h 5.1s
A8:
3.0 TFSI 213 (290) kW (PS) 420Nm 0-100km/h 6.1s
3.0 TDI 184 (250) kW (PS) 550Nm 0-100km/h 6.1s

I stress again this is not a rule, but in most cases it is true that the engine with higher torque is better
Good luck

The engine technologies don't allow direct comparison.
The diesel is twin turbo, where as the petrol is supercharger.

Put the twin turbos on the petrol then redo the 0-60 ;0)

As you show, if Nm is everything why does the petrol A8 have the same performance?
Performance is many things, not a single item.

To have the same performance but TFSI has 40HP more , same as the SQ5 41HP more, but is slower

VW Group has Twincharger 1.4TSI petrol engine with 185HP
Of course this is a vast topic

Good luck

What is the Fascination in 0-60 or 0-100 km/h Just to sell cars to Anoraks.
Gearing as mentioned above also plays a part as it Geared [excuse the pun] to achieve low co and high mpg.
My RS6 has less torque the my TDI 382HP and it will Whip the TDI Nuff said.
