New Audi Q2 Takes An RS Testosterone Pill

Dressed to impress, this imaginary Audi RS Q2 comes straight out of Nissan Juke Nismo RS‘ nightmares.

The four-ring brand hasn’t announced any intentions to offer an RS range-topper variant for the  Q2,  but X-Tomi Design went ahead and drew one up anyway to cure our curiosity. 

Compared to the standard edition, the front fascia adopts a more aggressive design, with a different pattern for the larger grille and an RS badge too, a tweaked bumper and “Quattro” lettering under the license plate. The side profile remains unchanged, sans the bigger wheels and the lowered stance.

If Audi’s RS division gave the green light, then it would get sportier seats and a slightly tweaked cabin, to remind owners that they chose the most expensive version of the Q2, while for power, a 2.0-liter turbocharged mill from Audi’s existing stable with anywhere from 250 to 300 horses sounds just about right.

For now, the most powerful model in the subcompact SUV’s range is a 2.0L four-banger delivering 190 PS (187 HP).
