How time flies. Just two years after it was first revealed at the Paris Motor Show (remember motor shows?), Ingolstadt’s S3 on stilts, the Audi SQ2, has been updated with minor visual tweaks and tech upgrades.
Starting at the front, the grille, positioned slightly lower, features a new look with polygons at the intersections of the horizontal and vertical bars. While LED headlights come as standard, new Matrix LED units now feature on top-spec Vorsprung variants.
To the side, the revised SQ2 features aluminum-look mirror housings, sill inserts, a roof edge spoiler, and gray C-pillars. As for the rear, the bumper has been given faux air vents with pentagonal polygon design. LED lights also feature, with those scrolling dynamic rear indicators in highest spec.
Inside, sports seats now boast electrically adjustable lumbar support (woohoo), while a rear-view camera is now standard. Vorsprung trim brings heated front seats, a panoramic sunroof, Bang & Olufsen audio, and wireless phone charging.
The 2.0-liter turbo engine doesn’t get an upgrade, still producing 296hp and 400Nm of torque, enough for 0-100kph in 4.9sec. But while there’s no more power than before, the safety tech is boosted with the addition of adaptive cruise assist, bringing a glimpse of autonomy when you’re on a long highway slog.
Prices kick off at £38,700 (P2.48 million). Tempted?
