The Audi SQ2 is expected to sport the 2.0-litre TFSI engine of the Audi S3. This turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine produces 228 PS at 5,800-6,500 rpm and 380 Nm of torque from 1,850-5,700 rpm. Transmission choices may include 6-speed manual and 7-speed S ironic dual-clutch automatic. The SQ2 should have the Quattro permanent AWD system as standard.
