Audi SQ2 continues Audi’s domination of the sports SUV models. Stick around for a minute and we will have a look at what it is like.
Audi Q2 created a stir when first launched in 2017 and ever since we have been waiting for a performance version.
Well the SQ2 has arrived.
Audi SQ2 Pricing starts at $64,400 plus the usual costs and is packed with standard features and the high performance 2.0L TFSI engine that produces 221Kw/400Nm. It is good for a 0-100kmh time of 4.9 seconds which is slightly slower than an RSQ3 and about the same as the SQ8.
However it is not only fast, it is extremely agile, comfortable and with the QUATTRO drivetrain the handling is superb. It is simply fun to drive
