The Audi Q2 has been presented in the past Hall Geneva, has been one of the releases 2016. Although their first units of this small SUV will not arrive until the end of the year, the brand with the four rings seems to be already thinking of some sports version. This model would be the Audi SQ2 and would continue with the saga of the SQ5 and SQ7, but in reduced size and with a mechanics that we already know.
apparently the engine chosen for this model would not be other than the 2.0 TFSI four-cylinder engine mounts currently the Audi S3, which we have already tested. Would the same 310 HP and 380 Nm of torque and be offered both with manual change of six speeds, as the automatic S tronic. Would be as an ally to the all-wheel drive Quattro. In addition to a director of the brand stated that this would be “relatively easy”.
Stephan Knirsch, a member of the Board of Audi for Technical Development, said that thanks to the MQB platform, “el Q2 shares much with the A3, but first we’ll have to see as it sold more expensive versions of the Q2″. In this way, although not confirmed the arrival of the SQ2, yes that made it clear that it is something they have in their hands. Meanwhile, there were also long ago rumors about something more radical.
Following the presentation of the small SUV we talked to you about a hypothetical Audi RS Q2, more sporty yet thanks to the 2.5 TFSI five-cylinder that would be taken from the Audi RS3. It would be even more powerful by staying close to the 400 HP. There is still no official confirmation, but looks good for the future of the Q2. In any case, the sport variant SQ2 would not arrive until fthe end of 2017-beginning of 2018, while for the RS would have to wait one more year.
