GENEVA LIVE 2016- Audi SQ7 has a new TriTurbo 4.0 V8 TDI diesel engine

Audi has unveiled the hottest version of its Q7 SUV line-up, the 429bhp SQ7.

GENEVA LIVE 2016- Audi SQ7 has a new TriTurbo 4.0 V8 TDI diesel engine

The SQ7's all all-new V8 features twin turbocharging plus an electric-powered compressor to eliminate turbo lag. This compressor works alongside the two turbos in the lower rev range to boost off-the-line performance.




To power the new electric compressor, the SQ7 features a 48-volt electrical system, which also powers the car’s electromechanical active roll stabilisation system.




That’s controlled via a central unit that manages the shock absorbers, air springs, sport differential and all-wheel steering – all designed for quicker reactions to boost the big car’s handling.


And because the 48-volt powered front and rear stabilisers (independently controllable) are oil-free they’re also maintenance free.
