While fleets of new Audi Q2 are starting to make its way to showrooms worldwide, the range’s flagship is beginning to take shape at the world’s most popular automotive proving ground.
Spotted testing at the notorious Nurbugring circuit in Germany virtually undisguised, the SQ2 is Audi’s answer to the Mercedes-AMG GLA 45.
At the heart of Audi’s smallest sport SUV is a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine sourced from the S3 and TTS that produces 206kW and 380Nm. If their performance is of any indication, expect the SQ2 to sprint from 0 to 100km/h in around 5 seconds.
Unique “S” details spotted in the SQ2 include black exterior mirror housings, blacked-out singleframe grille and bumper accent, front lip spoiler, larger rear diffuser, quad exhaust tailpipes and 19-inch gloss black wheels.
The Audi SQ2 is expected to arrive in late 2017.
