The updated Audi Q2, available from October
The compact SUV features an even more striking design, “the crossover gets a makeover”, as they say.
The original Audi SUV-crossover has enhancements inside and out, plus a new range of advanced features now as standard.
It has an attractive look and becomes even more distinctive on the road. The latest Q2 features LED headlights as standard and Matrix LED technology optional. Seven individual LEDs seated in a shared module produce an intelligently controlled high beam light, illuminating the road as brightly as possible without blinding other road users
Bumpers at the front and rear have a prominent new design. A real eye-catcher, the Audi Q2 is even more fun to drive.
As regards the inside, note that it has additional connect services and driver assist systems. The changes aren’t just aesthetic: the new Q2 includes advanced features, too. On the Sport trim and upwards, there’s the Virtual Cockpit digital display and intelligent MMI Navigation plus, that learns your preferred routes and factors in traffic conditions. Pre-sense rear that alerts to hazards behind you, and Adaptive cruise assist, are standard on the Vorsprung edition, too.
The updated Audi Q2 has become a few millimetres longer, now measuring 4.21 metres, while the width (1.79 metres) and height (1.54 metres) have remained the same. The drag coefficient of 0.31 (with sport suspension) is a top-of-the-range value in the segment.
More comforts have been added to the Q2’s cabin: electric lumbar support is now standard in the front seats across the range. Also Audi connect, the bespoke infotainment service that links your car to the internet, is now also a standard feature from the Sport trim. With everything from live traffic info to restaurant reviews, it makes life inside the Q2 that much more convenient.
Pricing details are to be announced later on. According to some British press reports, in UK prices start from £23,500 – broadly similar to the outgoing version. First deliveries are expected before the end of the year.
