Default Audi offering a performance diesel Q5 - but not in North America

https://www.autoblog.com/2019/02/21/...r-we-wont-get/

"The 3.0-liter turbodiesel V6 produces 347 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque, with Audi quoting "acceleration to highway speeds" (we'll assume 62 mph) in 5.1 seconds."

That would be a fun drive. But no, none for us.

Tuners can make you one. And boy are they a hoot! Lots of power, and in the Q5 the best power to weight ratio of any TDI ever sold here.

Yeah, but after my last Q5, I doubt I could ever get the wife to say yes to another Audi. It was more the dealer than the car itself, but that's enough to kill the buzz. I like the looks of the E-Tron as well, but I'm just not going to spend that kind of money on a car. Of course, this SQ5 TDI would be just as expensive.
