Audi wants to show everyone they mean business when it comes to diesel and to do that they're going big with their latest announcement, the all-new SQ7. Audi's flagship SUV can now claim the title of the most powerful diesel-powered sport-utility out there with a 4.0L V8 TDI engine that produces 435-hp and 663 lb-ft of torque while maintaining an impressive 31 mpg. 

When it comes to speed, the SQ7 is no slouch and will get from 0-62 in 4.8 seconds and can reach a limited top speed of 155 mph. Couple that with their all-wheel-drive Quattro system and you've got a serious performance car for both on and off-road journeys. 

On the equipment side you'll be able to spec the car with LED or Matrix LED headlights, five or seven passenger seating options, optional "Audi Virtual Cockpit" digital dashboard, optional MMI navigation plus, and your choice of a 1,920-watt, 23-speakr Bang & Olufsen sound system or a 19-speaker Bose surround system. No word on whether we'll see this beast in the US, but expect it to land in Europe for €89,900.
