Audi had a solid 2020 despite the challenging conditions, with sales up 2.6 per cent to the end of November. That slight increase comes against a market decline of 16 percent over the same period.
Primarily, Audi has spent 2020 making up for lost time, after taking a number of cars off sale last year due to the requirement to meet more stringent new European WLTP regulations.
Volkswagen has officially confirmed the T-Roc R for production, teasing the little performance crossover in a short clip on YouTube this week.
We've seen plenty of development prototypes for the R-badged T-Roc over the last year or so, and the production version shouldn't stray far from those vehicles – T-Roc body with subtle aero add-ons, big wheels and brakes, and a quad-tipped exhaust.
A prototype believed to be the upcoming Audi SQ2 has been spied again in Europe, this time inside and out.
While this vehicle looks like a standard version of the Q2, there are some clues indicating underneath the understated skin is a powerful little beast.
Key changes include the quad-tipped exhaust out the back – a trademark of current Audi 'S' models – along with the bigger brakes behind the alloy wheels branded with the 'S' logo.
