The Audi SQ2, which is yet to make its way to South Africa, has been given a mild cosmetic revision for the new year.

In order to give the compact performance crossover a more aggressive frontal design, the octagonal singleframe has been lowered. Narrow slits between the grille and bonnet, similarly used on the current Audi A1, further emphasise its dynamic presence while wide frames painted in selenite silver surround the larger air inlets. LED headlamps are standard fit on the SQ2 while the Matrix LEDs are available as an option.

At the profile, an aluminium finish has been used for the door mirror housings, sill strips and blades on the C-pillar for contrast. The rear bumper adopts a pentagonal polygons complements the redesigned front-end while hosting two exhaust tailpipes on either side. These are divided by a diffuser insert.

Performance for the SQ2 remains unchanged with the turbocharged 2,0-litre four-cylinder engine delivering 221 kW and 400 N.m of torque to all four paws. This gives it a 0-100 km/h time of 4,8 seconds and a limited top speed of 250 km/h.
