More performance at the top of the 2014 Audi Q5 range

Audi adds more appeal to its 2014 Q5 with a new high-performance SQ5 model, as well as a TDI turbodiesel engine. Elsewhere, the 2.0T TFSI four-cylinder turbo gas engine that's the entry point to the Q5 range gains some power, now boasting 220 hp. Audi also has made a few minor revisions to the standard features across the lineup. The SQ5, which tops the range, uses a higher-power version of the supercharged 3.0-liter V6 from the 3.0T models—output is boosted by 82 hp for a 354-hp total. It also comes with other changes to the standard Quattro all-wheel-drive system to increase the enjoyment factor in this more driver-focused model.

The Q5 TDI features a 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 diesel engine, with 240 hp and a huge 428 lb-ft of torque. The engine is a useful addition to the range—it's quicker from a standstill to 60 mph than the Q5 Hybrid yet offers better EPA fuel economy. Trim levels remain much the same, with Premium, Premium Plus, Prestige, and Hybrid Prestige, to which a number of packages can be added. In all, there's plenty of choice for this appealing all-round luxury compact SUV.
