The Q2 broadens Audi’s reach into the luxury crossover sector, and the SQ2 will give consumers something with a bit more than the 190 horsepower provided by the basic Q2’s 2.0-liter gasoline and diesel engines. The SQ2 undoubtedly handles the exact same shape as its lower brethren, so all of it reality it’s more of a jacked up hatchback than a crossover, however considering BMW is most likely thinking about an M version of its upcoming X2 crossover, the SQ2 needs to discover itself with some decent competitors at some point.
2018 Audi SQ2 Exterior
On the outside, Audi kept to its conventional style, just making small exterior changes. The most dramatic can be found in the kind of a brand-new fascia. The headlight units are the exact same, and the grille handles the exact same shape, but the air dam below the grille is twice as high, and the air inlets on each corner have grown a bit as well. So far the grille, air inlets and air dam have are all black, but I believe Audi will add the traditional silver surface to the outside edges of the grille, and air inlets prior to the model makes it to display rooms. In addition, the Audi rings will also get a silver finish, and I anticipate to see an SQ2 badge on the grille.
2018 Audi SQ2 Interior
The majority of the interior will be black, but anticipate the seats with Nappa leather and Alcantara to be readily available in a range of color options. The majority of the trim inserts inside the cabin will be replaced with brushed aluminum systems that will truly stick out against the mainly black interior. Expect a couple of SQ2 logos here and there along with a special start screen for the infotainment display screen. In addition to all this, the 2018 Audi SQ2 will likely have the 12.3-inch virtual cockpit display screen that is personalized and booked for S-based models.
2018 Audi SQ2 Engine
Reports and reasoning suggest that the 2018 Audi SQ2 will most likely get the very same turbocharged powerplant that powers the Audi S3. That means the 2018 Audi SQ2 won’t just have Audi’s awesome quattro all-wheel-drive system, but it will include 310 horse power and 295 pound-feet of torque on tap as well. It’s adequate to press the S3 sedan approximately 60 mph in as quick as 4.7 seconds, but I’m anticipating a 60-mph sprint of closer to 5 seconds for the SQ2. Anticipate the SQ2 to be used with the S Tronic gearbox or an automatic, and the speed limiter will come into play at 155 mph, as per German requirements.
2018 Audi SQ2 Price
We don’t even understand just how much the basic Audi Q2 will cost, so considering prices of the 2018 Audi SQ2 appears a little premature. With the rate point for the Q2 anticipated to be around $29,000, the SQ2 could begin as high as $34,000– right around the exact same rate as the base Q3. Of course, we’ll hear prices for the standard Q2 closer to this fall when it strikes display rooms, and that ought to provide us a better idea of rates for the 2018 Audi SQ2.
