New Q2: premium technology, quality and design in a crossover that is impossible to define
Untaggable is certainly hard to define. So, with the new Audi Q2, it’s time to forget about labels. This is a crossover in the truest sense of the word, blurring boundaries and dismissing preconceived ideas about vehicle definitions. With the bold stance of an SUV and the elegant roofline of a coupé, it really does look like nothing else. And with the agility and responses of a small family car, yet the all-weather, go-anywhere indomitability of an SUV, it really does drive like no other car as well. To experience this untaggable character for yourself, pre-book a test drive with us now.
The new Q2 can adapt to whatever type of road it finds itself on. Comfortable, refined and composed on open roads and motorways. Agile, manoeuvrable and manageable down city streets. Responsive, engaging and sure-footed through twists and turns. And specified with quattro all-wheel drive it provides enhanced grip in all conditions and on all surfaces. With progressive steering as standard and Audi drive select and adaptive dampers as options, the Q2 really can adjust itself to different driving situations and unique driver tastes. To learn what the experts say, M25 Audi has all the latest Audi Q2 reviews as well as our very own review of this brilliant new car.
The engine range is equally as adaptable. The 150PS 1.4 TFSI uses Cylinder-on-Demand technology to offer a unique blend of performance and economy, achieving up to 54.3mpg combined, yet dismissing 0-62mph in only 8.5 seconds. The 1.6 TDI is even more efficient, returning up to 64.2mpg on a combined cycle, yet still providing ample performance for the everyday. Also available is a 115PS 1.0 TFSI and a 150PS 2.0 TDI, while a smooth, quick-shifting seven-speed S tronic automatic is also offered.
With its coupé-like roofline and assertive, SUV-style stance, the Q2 makes a bold statement that’s emphasised further by sharp lines and confident design details that make it really stand out as something different. But that’s just the beginning because, with a high level of customisation, the Q2 can make whatever statement you want it to. Three trim levels with different body styling, 12 exterior body colours, five contrasting C-pillar blade colours, different alloy wheel designs, ten LED illuminated interior inlay hues and four interior trim options: the new Q2’s looks are defined only by you.
The new Q2 S line in design detail:
The Q2’s interior is truly breathtaking with its beautiful, clean, minimalist design and premium materials, refined finishes and incomparable luxury ambience. The cabin of the compact Q2 is also remarkably spacious, with generous headroom and legroom providing passengers with indulgent comfort, and there’s up to 405 litres of room for your luggage in the rear. With a selection of cabin materials, colours, trims and lighting options, you can put your own stamp on your Q2’s interior. And with MMI Radio Plus – with a 7" fixed MMI colour screen and MMI controller – as standard, there’s high-definition control over your Q2’s systems. The interior and technology of a large luxury car, in a compact crossover.
LED headlights: not only are they far more powerful than standard lights – resulting in more natural illumination that puts minimal strain on your eyes – but also they require less energy to power and they last longer. They come as standard on S line and Edition #1 trims, or as an option on SE and Sport.
Audi virtual cockpit: replaces the traditional dashboard with a high-resolution, 12.3” LCD screen showing crisp 3D graphics, which you can customise via the multi-function steering wheel. Choose between ‘classic’ view (prominent speedometer and rev counter) or ‘infotainment’ view (which brings functions such as the navigation map or media). Available as part of the optional Technology Pack.
Audi smartphone interface: now you can access apps approved for in-car use by Android and Apple and display them on the central MMI display. Use the MMI controls on the centre console, the multi-function steering wheel, Audi voice control, or even your smartphone’s assistant, like Siri. It’s standard across the range. Another option, Audi phone box, provides wireless charging and signal boosting for smartphones.
Audi connect: the link between your Audi and the internet, giving you access to entertainment, information and search functions via high-speed 4G internet access from an embedded SIM card. With no data charge, you can call up parking information, fuel prices, weather forecasts or high-resolution images from Google Earth and Street View. 36-month contract with the Technology Pack.
Audi drive select: control how your Q2 reacts, by choosing from five different modes: auto, comfort, dynamic, efficiency and individual. Standard on all models except for the SE.
Audi pre-sense front and multi-collision brake assist: detects objects and attempts to avoid accidents or reduce their severity by applying the brakes. Standard across the range.
