Audi Q2 Subtly Reworked By ABT Adds More Power

ABT wants to appeal to Audi owners with a new tuning package aimed at the smallest crossover from Ingolstadt, the Q2.

Their work kicks off with power upgrades aimed at the strongest petrol and diesel engines, obtained thanks to the internally-developed engine control unit (ECU).

The 2.0-liter gasoline burner is now good for 228 PS (225 hp / 168 kW) and 360 Nm (266 lb-ft) of torque, instead of the stock 190 PS (187 hp / 140 kW) and 320 Nm (236 lb-ft) of torque. The 2.0-liter diesel, on the other hand, now delivers 215 PS (212 hp / 158 kW) and 440 Nm (325 lb-ft) of torque, which represents a 25 PS (25 hp / 19 kW) and 40 Nm (30 lb-ft) of torque bump in power.

Other work includes the addition of lowering suspension springs, which drop the entire body by 40 mm (1.6 in) at both ends.

Rounding up the tuner’s offerings are the wheels, available in three different patterns, called DR, ER-C and FR, from 18- to 20-inch in size. For the second option, customers can choose between two finishes, called gun-metal/diamond-machined or matte black.

If looking at the tuned Audi Q2 has made you want one, then get ready to spend at least €23,900 ($27,737) for the entry-level grade in Germany. The same model starts at £21,665 ($21,218/€24,313) in the United Kingdom.
