Audi Q2


The Audi Q2 is a small SUV, it shares its underpinnings with the similar sized Seat Arona and Volkswagen T-Roc as well as the Audi A3 and VW Golf. Audi has gone surprisingly off-piste in the styling department for the Q2, which makes for a look that will divide opinion, one comment being ‘the side profile has more lines than Clapham Junction’. At 4121mm long, the Q2 is 167mm longer than an Audi A1 and 116mm shorter than an A3. Among SUVs, it’s a smidge shorter than a Nissan Juke. The Q2 is comfortable up front as both the driver and front passenger seats come with manual height adjustment as standard, though lumbar support is £250 extra. The rear doors are small and access is tight, as is seating for three. The boot has a capacity of 405 litres which is pretty much on par for the class.


The Audi Q2 comes in two trim lines, Sport and S-Line. Sport models offer 17 inch alloy wheels, sports seats and aluminium and gloss red interior trim, seven-inch infotainment screen with satellite navigation as standard and the stereo comes with eight speakers instead of four. S-line models are the sportiest with 18-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, remodelled bumpers and side skirts and matt grey exterior trim. Inside, you’ll find the same seven-inch infotainment screen with sat nav as Sport models, part-leather sports seats with embossed S-Line logos, brushed aluminium trim and stainless steel pedals.


The single engine choice is the 1.5 litre 148 bhp petrol available as a 6 speed manual or 7 speed twin clutch Automatic Gearbox.  The 1.5 petrol has cylinder shut off where it can shut down up to two cylinders at lower speed to preserve fuel. The 0-62 time is a brisk 8.5 seconds and claimed economy is 46.3 miles per gallon.

Prices for Quarter 2 are £1499 AP for the Sport Manual and £1649 as an S-Line, Automatic cars are £2249 and £2399.
