Audi has revised the SQ2 model with sharper designs such as new headlights and bumper. Its appearance is even sportier and more striking, and new Audi connect services and assist systems make driving the car even more effortless. It also offers a strong performance: The 2.0 TFSI with 221 kW (300 PS) accelerates the SQ2 from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 4.9 seconds. Thanks to Quattro all-wheel drive and the S sport suspension, the power is applied smoothly to the road.
Since its debut two years ago, the SQ2 has made a name for itself, as a car full of character. It is a dynamic compact SUV for individualists who value standalone design, a high utility value, and dynamic handling. The key figures speak For example to the bearings and oil supply that increase its efficiency. The pump is powered by a low-wear, brushless electric motor. The entire clutch is just under one kilogram (2.2 lb) lighter than the part in the predecessor model.
The Audi SQ2 design has become even more expressive with the update. The octagonal Singleframe is now slightly lower, and the slats in its insert also interpret the polygon motif that characterizes the entire car. There are narrow slits between the grille and the hood. Wide frames painted in selenite silver surround the large implied air inlets.
Audi installs the new Matrix LED headlights as an alternative. Ten further light-emitting diodes installed behind rhomboid optical components generate the daytime running light. Seven LEDs generate the dynamic turn signals independently. LED lights are installed at the rear as standard. When installed with the Matrix LED headlights, they also feature dynamic turn signals. In this case, the headlights and rear lights present dynamic light sequencing when the car is locked and unlocked.
The SQ2 exterior package also applies black styling to the mirror housings, the blade on the C-pillar, and the tailpipe trims. The roof edge spoiler features a special contour here, and Quattro logos on film adorn the doors. From EUR 45,700: presales of the SQ2 have already started.
