« Back Audi SQ2
Within the VW Group, you have plenty of choice should you want a 296bhp AWD medium sized hatchback. From the Golf, to the S3, to the Cupra range there are many options, the slightly more left-field of which is this – the Audi SQ2.
Using the recently facelifted Q2 as it’s base, Audi installs the familiar 2.0 litre turbocharged 4-cyl engine linked to the AWD system and dual clutch 7-spd S-Tronic gearbox which allows for a 4.9 second sprint to 62mph.
Visually the SQ2 now gets new LED headlights and tail lights, a redesigned front bumper with larger grille and broader air intakes and a new faux diffuser at the rear housing the familiar quad tail pipes.
Inside there are a few tech tweaks but it’s familiar Audi style in there which is no bad thing.
It may not be the common choice, but the SQ2 is practical and stylish with brutal performance to match, and you can win one in the BOTB Midweek Car Competition!
