What it’s like to drive, and how quiet it is
So what makes the SQ2 so different from the normal Audi Q2? Well, for starters, it has a rather more potent 296bhp 2.0 TSI engine shared with the Cupra Ateca and Volkswagen T-Roc R.
It makes for a genuinely quick SUV, and the 0-62mph time of 4.9secs is fast enough to embarrass many much more expensive cars, including the entry-level Porsche Macan. Helping matters is standard quattro four-wheel drive that provides superb traction whatever the weather.
