The Audi Q2 is being launched on the German market with a powerful gasoline engine: The 1.5 TFSI outputs 110 kW (150 PS) and produces 250 Nm (184.4 lb-ft) of torque. Two engines will be added before the end of the year. All engines comply with the new Euro 6 AP emission standard, and the twin dosing technology of the diesel engines minimizes the NOx emissions. Two SCR catalytic converters work together here: One is located directly behind the engine and the other is installed in the vehicle floor. They cover different operating situations and complement each other’s effects.
The Q2 with the 1.5 TFSI engine rolls off the assembly line with a manual six-speed transmission as standard, with the seven-speed S tronic available as an option. quattro all-wheel drive is available for some engine versions. Its multi-plate clutch, which transfers part or all of the engine torque to the rear wheels as needed, belongs to a new generation. It is around one kilogram (2.2 lb) lighter than its predecessor engine while offering increased efficiency thanks to various details such as bearings and oil supply.
Even with the standard trim, the compact Q2 is an agile SUV. Progressive steering, which becomes increasingly direct as the steering movement increases, comes as standard. It increases the handling and vehicle dynamics while maneuvering and on winding roads.
Upon request, Audi will deliver a sport suspension that lowers the body by ten millimeters (0.4 in). Alternatively, the suspension is available with damper control, which further increases the range between comfort and dynamism. It includes the Audi drive select dynamic handling system, which is also available separately.
The range of wheels and tires starts with the 16-inch and 205/60 formats. Topping the range are 19-inch wheels from Audi Sport with 235/40 tires. Three new rim designs complete the offering. With nearly 15 centimeters (5.9 in) of ground clearance, the Audi Q2 also does well on light off-road terrain, and the ESC stabilization control has an integrated off-road mode.
LED headlights now come as standard in the Audi Q2, and Matrix LED headlights are available as an option. Seven individual LEDs seated in a shared module produce an intelligently controlled high beam light. It always illuminates the road as brightly as possible without blinding other road users. Ten light-emitting diodes installed behind rhomboid optical components generate the daytime running light, while seven further LEDs generate the dynamic turn signal light in addition.
For the reversing lights, customers can choose between two LED versions – with or without dynamic turn signal. If the Matrix LED headlights are on board, the dynamic turn signal comes as standard at the rear end as well. In addition, the headlights and rear lights draw attention to the new Q2 with light sequencing when the car is locked and unlocked.
The color palette of the compact SUV contains five new colors: Apple green is celebrating its premiere with Audi, and Manhattan gray, Navarra blue, arrow gray, and turbo blue are new with the Q2. The blades on the C-pillars are painted in vehicle color or kept in black, gray, and silver shades, depending on the equipment line. There is a choice of three versions for the attachments in the lower section of the body: Pitted black in the basic version, Manhattan gray in the advanced line, and vehicle color in the S line.
The spacious interior of the Audi Q2 accommodates five passengers. The interior design echoes the taut design language of their exterior. The air vents and the gear lever knob, or selector lever of the S tronic, have a new look. Q2 customers can order the interior S line instead of the basic variant, and both interior versions can be combined freely with the three exterior variants. With the optional ambient lighting package plus, the trim strip on the instrument panel and the knee pads on the center console feature elegant backlighting.
The Dinamica microfiber material is a new addition to the range and will replace the Alcantara material. Audi has bundled all upholstery and colors into seven packages, four of which are assigned to the basic interior, while the other three are assigned to the interior S line. The optional equipment is also bundled into packages, as this provides a better overview of the extensive range during configuration. Whether it is climate control, comfort, function, interior, infotainment, or assist systems: All packages have been compiled such that they accommodate the customers’ wishes. Audi will roll out this strategy in all model series in the future and adjust them to the respective preferences in the important global markets.
