In the present world almost all the new car buyers are looking to buy the vehicles with better fuel efficiency, and inorder to take the advantage of the same Audi will be unveiling its exclusive SQ5 concept SUV at the 2012 Paris Motor Show. This is the first model from Audi under the S badge to be powered by a diesel engine, as compared to the remaining range of Audi S vehicles are powered by a petrol engines.
Audi has already launched the SQ5 diesel just few months back, and now they will unveil something a little more exclusive known as the Audi SQ5 TDI Exclusive Concept. The Exclusive Concept terminology doesn’t do anything to the mechanicals of the car. Only exterior and interior upgrades are made. On the outside, it features an Aral Blue crystal effect exterior finish, exterior mirrors are in aluminum look (like all S models) and xenon plus headlights with LED daytime running lights are standard – that’s about it.
On the inside, Audi adds a leather multifunction sports steering wheel and it’s accentuated with snow white stitching. Black sport seats and woven leather have been used for the seating in this concept car. This is the first time that woven leather has been used in an AUDI production vehicle. Dazzles and contrast are the basis of the SQ5 interior design. Grain ash inlays, Alcantara headlining as also door trims and entry sills adorn the interiors of this model.
All those visual upgrades bring the pricing of the Audi SQ5 TDI Exclusive Concept to Rs 65.16 lakh, a premium of Rs 23 lakh over the standard SQ5 in Europe. Only 50 units will be produced and I’m pretty sure someone somewhere will buy them. However, these models will be available in dealerships in the beginning of 2013.
