German automaker Audi has brought their smallest ever crossover to Frankfurt and showcased it at the Frankfurt Motor Show. The Q2 represents the entry-level of Audi’s quattro range of SUVs and crossovers.
Based on the MQB platform, the Q2 sits below the Audi Q3 globally. The styling is typical Audi with the hexagonal grille and the LED DRLs and headlamps. The Q2 is rather small for an SUV, but the styling makes it look butch. Inside, the equipment will match the A3, which is why, globally, the A3 and the Q2 sit in the same price segment. The Q2 has a beige interior with power seats in the front, power mirrors and windows and an electrically-operated sunroof. It also has dual-zone climate control along with AC vents for rear passengers. The infotainment system has a display screen and can be controlled via the rotary fob or the steering mounted controls.
The Q2 is powered by a 2-litre TDI diesel engine, the mainstay of most Audis along with the new 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine. The latter was introduced in the A3 facelift launched earlier this year. Both engines are mated to a seven-speed automatic gearbox.
The Audi Q2 will be positioned above the Audi A3 sedan in the Indian market. Expect a price tag between Rs 28 lakh to Rs 30 lakh for the entry-level trim.
