Sporty character with superior performance - the Audi SQ7 and SQ8 with V8 TFSI petrol engines
"Audi is presenting the SQ7 and SQ8 with new TFSI engines. The brand is responding to the global trend towards sporty petrol engines in the High-performance SUV. The chassis of the Audi SQ7 TFSI2 and Audi SQ8 TFSI3 offer many high-tech components, new connectivity and assistance functions round off the technology package. The large S models will gradually be launched in the European markets from autumn 2020. 373 kW (507 hp) and a torque of 770 Nm, which is constant from 2,000 to 4,000 revolutions per minute - the 4.0 TFSI has an easy job with the Audi SQ72 and the Audi SQ83. The biturbo V8 petrol engine accelerates both models in 4.1 Seconds from zero to 100 km / h, in the intermediate sprint from 80 to 120 km / h just 3.8 seconds pass. At 250 km / h, the electronics limit the propulsion. Depending on the equipment, the SQ7 TFSI consumes between 12, 1 and 12, 0 liters of fuel, which corresponds to CO2 emissions of 278 to 276 grams per kilometer. The SQ8 TFSI also has 12.1 to 12.0 liters (276 to 275 grams of CO2). "
The ŠKODA ENYAQ SPORTLINE iV is the sportiest version yet of the new, all-electric SUV from Mladá Boleslav. Its look is characterised by a range of black design features and large wheels, while the lowered sports chassis makes for a particularly dynamic driving experience. The interior adds to the sporty feel, thanks to decorative, carbon-style trims, a three-spoke multifunction steering wheel and seats with integrated headrests. ŠKODA’s new flagship model range now includes a SPORTLINE variant, offered in three performance levels. The ENYAQ SPORTLINE iV 60 has an output of 132 kW, while the ENYAQ SPORTLINE iV 80 produces 150 kW. Both feature rear-wheel drive. The all-wheel-drive ENYAQ SPORTLINE iV 80x is equipped with two electric motors generating a combined output of 195 kW.
For the first time since 2012, the Legacy lineup will feature a turbocharged engine. Standard on XT models, the 2.4-liter turbocharged BOXER engine delivers brisk acceleration and robust all-around performance, with 260 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 277 lb-ft of torque from 2,000-4,800 rpm. Mated to a high-torque Lineartronic CVT with manual mode and steering wheel paddle control switches, the 2.4-liter BOXER launches Legacy XT from 0-60 mph in an estimated 6.1 seconds. Fuel economy for the turbo is equally impressive, with a manufacturer’s estimation of 24/32 mpg city/highway. For 2020, the Legacy’s CVT hydraulic system features a lower viscosity oil that reduces horsepower loss by 32 percent compared to the previous model’s CVT, helping the new model achieve both higher fuel economy and greater driving performance. Opting for a non-turbo Legacy doesn’t mean sacrificing rewarding performance. The standard naturally aspirated engine is the thoroughly revised 2.5-liter BOXER that debuted in the 2019 Forester. With direct injection and nearly 90 percent of its parts new, the 2.5-liter puts out 182 horsepower at 5,800 rpm and 176 lb-ft of torque at 4,400 rpm. Paired with a Lineartronic CVT, the 2.5-liter BOXER delivers estimated 0-60-mph acceleration of 8.4 seconds and, with the assistance of standard Active Grille Shutters, manufacturer’s estimated fuel economy of 27/35 mpg city/highway.
