To ensure that the suspension does not get bored with the production engine, the leading tuner for cars from the Audi and Volkswagen Group can also supply a power boost on request. ABT Sportsline takes the three-liter turbo gasoline engine in the SQ5 from originally 354 HP (260 kW) to a fiery 425 HP (313 kW) and a torque increase of 10% to 550 Nm. The power boost compared to the production car is provided by the specially developed ABT Engine Control (AEC) unit with software which is specially adjusted to the respective vehicle model. The AEC continuously adjusts more than 25 different parameters and communicates directly with the original engine control unit. Optimum use of power and maximum protection for the engine at the same time are the result. The AEC is also available for a large range of other engines. The top diesel of the Q5 with 286 HP (210 kW), for example, grows to 330 HP (243 kW), with the maximum torque increasing from 620 Nm to 670 Nm. Expert certificate and warranty are always included.
On request, the engine can be started in style with the ABT Start-Stop-Switch-Cap. An ABT Shift Know Cover from real carbon makes shifting gears a pleasure. And when the time comes to exit the car, the ABT Integrated Entrance Lights bid a silent goodbye!
