A screenshot from Volkswagen's ETKA (electronic parts catalog) has apparently revealed the Audi SQ5 will also be offered with a petrol engine.

The image suggests the crossover will feature a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 engine that produces 354 HP (260 kW). For comparison, the twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 diesel engine currently in the SQ5 develops 313 HP (230 kW) and 650 Nm (479 lb-ft) of torque. It enables the model to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 5.1 seconds and hit a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).

The crossover's styling should remain untouched so expect aggressive bumpers, faux-aluminum mirror caps and 20-inch alloy wheels. There could also be a sport-tuned suspension that reduces the ride height by 30mm.

The petrol-powered SQ5 will reportedly be launched in May, so look for an official unveiling in the near future.
