QSW/4000Q: Interference or not?

Sorry if this has been asked before, but I couldn't find it in the

A quick question: Is the 2.2L I-5 engine in my '87 QSW (a.k.a. 4000Q
Avant) an interference engine?

I've just found out that the timing belt has not yet been changed. The
car is now at 95k miles. Am I doomed for disaster real soon?

I'll plan on having it done as soon as possible, but I'd like to know
whether I should park it (and take my Audi) until I can get it done, or
still drive it, and just be inconvenienced if it snaps (i.e. just stop
dead in its tracks, which is bad enough, but not bend valves, chew up
the heads etc...).
