According to a recent report, Audi is developing a high-performance RS Q1.
Set to be based on the 2016 Q1, the model is slated to feature a 2.0-liter TFSI four-cylinder engine that develops 300 PS (220 kW) and 380 Nm (280 lb-ft) of torque. Consumers looking for performance and fuel efficiency won't be left out either as Autobild is reporting there will also be an SQ1 TDI that uses a twin-turbo 2.0-liter TDI engine that develops 231 PS (170 kW) and 500 Nm (368 lb-ft) of torque.

- A 1.8-liter TFSI with 180 PS (132 kW) and 280 Nm (206 lb-ft) of torque
