What happens when you mix an Audi Q2 SUV with a VW Golf R? A SQ2, that is what happens!

The SQ2 is in many was a Golf R on stilts. it steals the hot hatch’s 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder making 296 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque.

Audi says the small SUV will get to 62 mph in 4.8 seconds, also similar to the cars that engine finds itself in.

A seven-speed dual-clutch is the only transmission option. It sends power to all four wheels using Audi’s Quattro all-wheel-drive system.

There’s an S sports suspension that lowers the car 0.79 inch and stiffens things up a bit. Either 18-inch or optional 19-inch wheels are available with 235 width tires.

The brakes are much larger on this S model too — 13.4-inch rotors up front and 12.2-inches at the rear. Callipers can be painted in black or red to look a bit flashier too.

Unfortunately, this picture is the only one Audi is showing until the car is officially revealed at the Paris Motor Show next week.
