Audi Q2 Headlights Revealed as a Pancake That Looks Delicious

About two weeks ago, I learned how to make pancakes. It felt strangely satisfying to flip them over, although it wasn't as memorable as the first handbrake turns. But I fear that nothing I make will look as cool as this Audi Q2 teaser.
The Q division has been cooking up this small crossover for about a year. Even though it's a crucial little model, they've tried to keep it under wraps so as not to give the competition time to respond. But now that the Geneva Motor Show is just around the corner, the Germans have started showing off.

This is the first time in the history of the automobile that a car is teased using pancakes. A professional baking artist was hired to paint the front end of the car on a stove using vanilla and chocolate flavors. He must have been shown a photo of the real headlights and grille, as Audi would never tolerate "close enough." The result looks delicious but doesn't jump out as unique or groundbreaking.

By taking a jovial approach to teasing the Q2, Audi hints that it will be a crossover that doesn't take itself seriously. It's about letting your beard grow and to hell with what the boss says about the office dress code.

While there are plenty of subcompact crossovers on the market, only a few are made by luxury automakers. The big rival for this Q2 model is going to be MINI's next Countryman. We suspect they will duel in powerful 2-liter engines, head-up displays, and clever suspension. Rumor has it that the JCW version of the Countryman and Clubman will have around 300 horsepower, so the SQ2 might get an S3-derived lump of power too. Somebody had better put a chili pepper on top of that pancake to spice it up!
