New Audi Q2 Makes Geneva Debut

The fourth member of Audi’s Q family has made its public world debut at the Geneva Motor Show. The new Audi Q2 has taken an audacious new styling direction in an attempt to appeal to a younger target audience. Head of Audi Design, Marc Lichte says, “In the Audi Q2 we have developed a distinctively geometric form language with model-specific design characteristics. The car exhibits an independent character within the Q family.”

The sharp lines and edges represent Audi’s intent on creating a bold and strong image for the new Q2. Particularly striking features include the octagonal grille, large air inlets and the sloping roofline that merges into the C-pillar with alternate colour blades.

The Audi Q2 also comes with the optional Audi virtual cockpit and head-Audi Q2 Interiorup display. As well as this, the new model inherits driver assistance systems from larger Audi models. These systems include Audi pre sense front, which can initiate hard braking if a hazard is detected, cruise control, traffic jam assist, lane departure warning, traffic sign recognition and rear cross-traffic assist.

Despite its new design, the Q2 retains all the most attractive features of owning an SUV. Good all-round visibility as well as 405 litres or 1,050 litres of boot space with the seats down is on offer. Optional practical features also include a power tailgate and a three-way split rear bench.

The Audi Q2 will launch in the UK with a choice of five different engine options. These consist of a 1.0-litre three-cylinder TFSI engine, two four-cylinder engines (1.4 and 2.0-litre) with a 2.0-litre TFSI option joining the line up in 2017 and two four-cylinder diesel engines with 1.6 and 2.0-litres of displacement. As well as the six-speed manual gearbox, there is also a seven-speed S tronic dual clutch transmission available for all engine types.
