New V8 TFSI Engine: Audi SQ7 & SQ8
The successful SQ7 and SQ8 SUV models in the Audi range already offer exceptional sporty character, however, both models are set to be launched with superior performance thanks to the addition of the V8 TFSI engine.
Both models will provide the option of a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 with 507 PS and 770 Nm of torque. The new engine option offers added performance and a sport enhanced experience. Boasting all-wheel steering and sport air suspension as standard with this engine option, both SQ7 and SQ8 models are more energetic than ever. A sport differential and roll stabilisation will also be available as additional options.
When it comes to technology, the V8 engine models will feature new connectivity and assist services, as well as automatic parking upon request.
Not only does the new engine option offer exceptional performance, but also improved fuel consumption for the engine type. Thanks to a lightweight aluminum engine block, covered with a plasma sprayed layer of iron, the amount of friction is reduced, which in turn reduced fuel consumption and wear. What’s more, the special efficiency technology, cylinder on demand (COD) system deactivates four cylinders temporarily when driving with a moderate style. When the full potential of the 4.0 TFSI is reached, the cylinders are well filled, ensuring gas exchange and combustion chamber filling adjusting is fulfilled at lightening speed.
In addition to a whole host of performance enhancing elements, the S-specific details of the Audi SQ7 and SQ8 is obvious at first glance. Featuring double slats in the Singleframe at the front and a remarkable three-dimensional blade in the bumper and the impressive side air inlets with a honeycomb grid lining the sides, the sporty character is apparent throughout. Boasting four characteristic tailpipes and with the black styling package offering additional sports styling, the SQ7 and SQ8 look even more astonishing.
Inside, indulge in a luxurious and spacious cabin, including sports seats, with the option to add a massage function, optional contour/ambient lighting package with 30 colours and high-quality finishing’s throughout. The Audi virtual cockpit plus with S-specific views can be controlled from the steering wheel, whilst passengers can enjoy the on-board Wi-Fi hotspot. Both SQ7 and SQ8 models are equipped with the top infotainment system MMI navigation plus as standard.
The Audi Park Assist system is a new addition to these models, manoeuvring the car into and out of a parallel or bay parking space at the push of a button, making these models even more advanced than before.
