Audi SQ2 shown ahead of Paris Motor Show, 2.0L TFSI with 300 hp & 400 Nm


Audi will be presenting the all-new Audi SQ2 for the first time at the upcoming 2018 Paris Motor Show. The SQ2 will be the top of the line variant of the compact SUV and follows the same recipe as its other hot siblings like the SQ5.

At the heart of the SQ2 is a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder TFSI mill that has been boosted to 300 hp and 400 Nm of twist. The seven-speed S-Tronic gearbox and Quattro all-wheel-drive allows the baby SUV to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds; only 0.4 seconds slower than the Mercedes-AMG GLA 45. Top speed on the Audi is capped at 250 km/h.

To go with the extra output, Audi has fitted the SQ2 with an S sport suspension that lowers the ride height by 20 mm, recalibrated the steering ratio and fitted large brake kit that measures 340 mm in diameter up front and 310 mm at the rear. The brake callipers can be painted in red rather than black as an option.

In terms of exterior design, the top of the line Q2 gets eight vertical slats on the Singleframe grille, quad exhaust outlets, more aggressive bumpers, long roof edge spoiler and new diffuser inserts. Audi and Audi Sport offer up to 10-wheel designs measuring 18- or 19-inch in diameter.

The Audi SQ2 will make its global debut in October while deliveries will commence in early 2019.
