Audi has released two teaser images of the Q2 crossover slated to appear early next month at the Geneva Motor Show.
An official reveal is just around the corner, so Audi is trying to create a buzz by dropping new teasers. Compared to the last one which was pretty much pointless, the two adjacent pics are somewhat revealing as the illustrations show the vehicle’s shape. The baby crossover from Ingolstadt has been in development over the last four years and will be called “Q2” after Audi settled a dispute with Fiat Chrysler Automobiles regarding the use of this moniker.
Audi commenced pre-production of its smallest crossover back in October last year and these cars are currently conducting final testing to make sure everything is ready for the official market launch. The Audi Q2 is programmed to go on sale this fall and the first 5,000 units are heading to dealers.
It will ride on the versatile MQB platform shared with the A3 and is going to come with a variety of three- and four-cylinder engines, all turbocharged. A plug-in hybrid derivative is expected to join the range later in the model’s life cycle and there are also rumors concerning a diesel-powered SQ2 and even a 300-hp RS Q2. As standard, the Q2 will have a front-wheel drive arrangement, but at an additional cost buyers will be able to opt for a quattro setup with the four-cylinder motors.
Audi could decide to reveal the Q2 online in the following days, prior to a public debut on March 1 in Geneva.
