While the global automotive trends lean towards compact crossovers and SUVs, the modified European car scene remains loyal to more conventional body styles like Coupes, Sedans, Hatchbacks, and Wagons. However, the number of people who want to push out the boundaries and try new platforms like crossovers grows pretty fast, and there is a reason for that.
Picking a crossover for your next project may be a great decision for a couple of reasons: first – these cars are not as widespread as common Golf Hatchbacks or 3-series sedans and automatically attract more attention, 2nd – they’re indeed more versatile and comfortable in everyday usage. 3rd – when lowered – they still have enough clearance for more or less comfortable driving. Plus, in the case of this modified Audi SQ5, they’re incredibly fun to drive thanks to the supercharged 3.0L TFSI engine cable of 340HP and the famous Quattro all-wheel-drive technology with torque vectoring system.
