The Audi ‘Q’ range has a reputation as being among the most premium SUV lines in the motoring industry and now to reach into the smaller end of the market and cover every size range, Audi have released the latest Q model.
The Audi Q2 is the newest and smallest SUV now on offer, with the dynamic looks and superb performance combining many of the elements that help to make Audi SUVs the best on the market.
With elements of coupe, SUV and allroad-model design, the Q2 takes the best from each, with a raised seating position from an SUV, smooth and sleek coupe styling and strong-looking panelling from an Audi allroad.
As the latest model in the Audi range, it takes many of the technology features from models much further up the price range. The new virtual cockpit system can be fitted alongside a head-up display, whilst the pre sense front safety system is fitted as standard, which detects pedestrians and other objects in front of the car and if needed will apply the brakes for you. Other safety features include adaptive cruise control with Stop&Go function, traffic jam assist, lane-departure warning system, side assist, lane-keeping assistant, traffic sign recognition and rear cross-traffic assist, to name a few.
Audi connect also comes as a standard installation with Bluetooth connectivity and with Audi MMI, you can connect your smartphone through either Apple CarPlay or Android Auto and stay up-to-date with the Audi MMI application. Also available is in-car Wi-Fi, which uses an embedded SIM card to provide the car with an internet signal. This system can also be used on the continent so it can be very handy on long journeys.
This Audi has been designed to be as customisable as possible, allowing for owner creativity and individuality. With a wide range of interior, body colour and alloy wheel options, you can make your Q2 your own.
The Q2 comes with a selection of five engines, with three petrol options and two diesel engines. The power units can come with either a six-speed manual or seven-speed S tronic dual-clutch system. Most of the models are front-wheel drive, with only the 150PS TDI and 2.0-litre TFSI engines coming with the legendary quattro all-wheel drive system as standard.
After wowing the crowds at the Geneva Motor Show, the Q2 will be available from late autumn 2016.
