Audi has taken the wraps off the smallest vehicle in its Q range, the Q2 at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.
The Q2 is available with a range of petrol and diesel engines.
The petrol engines start with a 148bhp 1.4 TSI engine with cylinder deactivation technology. Also available is the 2.0 TFSI engine which comes in 2 different states of tune, 187bhp and 248bhp.
The diesel options include a 115bhp 1.6-litre powerplant and a 2.0-litre 148bhp engine.
The Audi Q2 takes its styling cues from the Crosslane Concept seen at the 2012 Paris Motor Show. However, it has sprouted a few extra doors compared to the concept car and has a swoopy design that suits the 5-door crossover quite well.
It does look like the rest of it Audi siblings but Audi plans to entice a much younger audience with it. The big grill up front, angular headlamps and taillamps, puffed up wheel arches the hexangonal cutout on the doors and the sloping roofline all point at the audience Audi is aiming for.
The Audi Q2 will be available in red, orange and yellow paintjobs and will have a boatload of customization options available as well.
Inside the Q2 is typically Audi but also have a little bit extra to make it stand out. There is 5.8-inch infotaiment display which can be upgraded to 8.4-inch unit. The standard dials can be replaced by Audi's 12.3-inch Virtual Cockpit display.
The Q2 gets a unique LED ambient lighting system that can project different colors through the panel gaps in the dashboard depending on whether it is day or night.
Availability & Rivals
The Q2 will go sale in Europe in the second half of 2016 and will go up against the Mercedes-Benz GLA and the upcoming BMW X2.
