Actually, the development of the 2018 Audi RS Q5 seems like a casual work for the manufacturer. This is because performance-oriented SUV will likely share much of the parts under the hood with the upcoming Audi RS 5. Except of the engine that is believed to be a new twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6, which will be capable to produce more than 450 horsepower, the all-new SUV will also share dual-clutch transmission and all-wheel-drive system. Compared to the SQ5’s 3.0-liter that deliver “just” 345 hp, the new one will definitely make a noticeable difference in power, and thus in class.
