SQ8 arrives with most powerful diesel engine yet

The range-topping Audi Q8 is the most recent vehicle to receive the ‘S’ treatment, with the new SQ8 coming with a twin turbo V8 engine.

The diesel V8 that powers the new SQ8 is reportedly the most powerful diesel engine available on the European market, generating 435hp and 900Nm of torque to all four wheels via Audi’s famous quattro drive system.

The 62mph benchmark comes up in just 4.8 seconds, and the vehicle is electronically limited to a top speed of 155mph.

The SQ8 retains the same muscular lines and coupe-like roofline of the standard Q8, as well as the generous interior space that a three-metre wheelbase affords.

Along with plentiful versatility, the SQ8 also comes with two large touchscreens used for managing the infotainment and the interior climate. In addition, a large digital instrument cluster displays a huge amount of detailed information, all in plain view of the driver.

To aid the driver, an eight-speed automatic transmission manages the forward motion of the vehicle, and the limited-run Vorsprung edition adds four-wheel steering to provide absolute control in all situations.
