Audi has begun testing the 2018 Audi SQ2 since the beginning of the summer, and today we are seeing the prototype once again, which wears the production body -family. The quick version of the small German crossover features a more aggressive body, lower suspension, quadruple exhaust tailpipes, large wheels and powerful brakes.
The cool thing is that while its bigger brothers now have fake trim simulating an exhaust, this one has quad tips that look the business. What’s the point of paying so much money for a small car if you can’t show off?
Under the bonnet, there is the 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder 310 hp engine with 400 Nm of torque seen in the S3, combined with either a manual or automatic S Tronic transmission, with torque in the latter case rising to 400 Nm. The power passes to all wheels through the Quattro system, with the presentation of the model being made at the Geneva exhibition next March, with sales starting shortly thereafter. Audi has announced that it will also bring RS Q2 to the 2.5-liter RS3 engine with 400 horsepower.
It should weight about 1.5 tons and do the 0 to 100 km/h sprint in 5 seconds or less. Hopefully, they’ll also sell it with some suitable alloys because these are shamefully small.
