| Who said Audi was set on increasing its armaments? The new versions of the A4 allroad and Q5 being launched by the manufacturer are certainly not moving in this direction. The two models are in fact being offered with less powerful engines than those available up to now. So the entry level diesel engine of the A4 allroad and Q5 is now the 143 bhp, 320 Nm 2.0 TDI. A Common Rail which requires just 6.2 litres of diesel per 100 km in the A4 and 6.5 litres in the Q5. These models reach 100 km/h from standstill in 10.3 and 11.4 seconds respectively. The Q5 is also being calmed down in its petrol format, where a 2.0 TFSI developing 180 bhp is being introduced. |
The P-Tronic additional box units are already available for the 2.0 TDI 143 bhp engine. They give a power increase of 45 bhp, an extra 97 Nm of torque and a decrease in fuel consumption of around 12%.
