The model will get a diesel engine.Despite the Saga with disengaja, the Volkswagen Group continues to be very serious about diesel engines, reports the Chronicle.info with reference to avtodream.org.
So serious that is preparing to release a sports model with a diesel engine under the brand Audi.
According to unofficial information, the German automaker is interested in the production of diesel versions of the S5 Coupe, S5 Cabriolet and S5 Sportback, and this is part of the Audi plan to reduce CO2 emissions across the range of their models.
According to rumors, we are talking about a 3 litre V6 engine with turbocharging, which equipped with a hybrid electric module. The same set on the model SQ5, developing 342 HP and 700 Nm of torque, working together with the 8-speed automatic and permanent all-wheel drive.
Note that the outgoing generation S5 is equipped with a 3-liter gasoline engine 349 HP and 500 Nm, working with the 8-speed automatic, but exactly when will be a new S5 is unknown.
Given the fact that Audi is already working on a new generation of A5, perhaps we are talking about one or two years before the premiere.
