Specializing in VW Group products, German after-sales specialists from ABT have significantly increased the power of the 2.0-liter turbo-charged gasoline engine.

The German company is trying to revive its small crossover powerful S-version, presented in October 2018 at the Paris Motor Show. A pretty angry kid competes with a similar BMW X2 M35i crossover, as well as his sibling in the VAG concern – this is a Volkswagen T-Roc R. For reference, the premium Audi brand is part of the German concern Volkswagen AG.

It has not yet been decided whether a division of a prestigious company, formerly known as Quattro GmbH, will ever produce a full-featured RS Q2 – the RS automaker stands for its most powerful models. Well, as it always happens, an independent tuning studio decided to take matters into its own hands, by thoroughly upgrading the standard SQ2.

The four-cylinder engine provides decent power of 296 horsepower and torque of 400 Nm in a conventional Audi SQ2, but if you want something more powerful, ABT will increase power to 345 hp (440 Nm). An additional 49 horsepower and torque of 40 Nm reduced the crossover to two tenths of a second before the sprint from 0 to a speed of 100 km / h. Now the acceleration time is 4.6 seconds.

Atelier ABT also tinker with a speed limiter – now the SQ2 can drive faster than 250 km / h. The maximum possible speed is now equal to 262 km / h. To better show that this is not the usual SQ2, the tuner removed the standard wheels to make room for unusual 19- or even 20-inch glossy black alloys that come with a set of wheel spacers.

Not so long ago, we wrote about the updated crossover Audi Q7 2020, which received a slight change from the outside, more inside.
