Audi strengthens its presence in the booming SUV segment with the compact Audi Q2 – an urban car for everyday driving and leisure with a progressive design and youthful charm and two new top models, the Audi S4 Avant and the Audi RS Q3.
Measuring 4.19 meters in length, the Audi Q2 has a powerful road stance. With its overtly geometrical formal idiom it takes up position as an independent character within the Q family. Customers can tailor many of the details to their individual preferences, and there are two trim lines to choose from. Expressive colors create highlights both on the exterior and in the spacious interior. The seated position is sportily deep in relation to the steering wheel, and the controls are self-explanatory.
Options include the all-digital Audi virtual cockpit and a head-up display. The infotainment range culminates in the MMI navigation plus with the online component Audi connect. The Audi Q2 also redefines the class benchmark for assistance systems. Audi pre sense front can avoid collisions with pedestrians or vehicles; adaptive cruise control with stop & go function and traffic jam assist represent precursors of piloted driving.
The newest member of the Q family is available with powerful and efficient TFSI engines – its performance range extends from 150 hp to 190 hp. The seven-speed S tronic with lightning-fast action is available for all engine versions, and quattro permanent all-wheel drive. It owes its agile handling to the standard-fit progressive steering, the sporty suspension – optionally with damper control – and the optional driving dynamics system Audi drive select. The Audi Q2 goes on sale in Europe in fall 2016.
