The newest entrant in the premium compact SUV segment, the 2017 Audi Q2 will make its Australian debut as part of Audi Hamilton Island Race Week in Queensland this week, before touring the East Coast of Australia.
Customer deliveries of the new SUV won’t begin until February 2017, but for buyers who’d like to get in early Audi will have a preview model on display, to showcase the city-SUVs new design.
“We are delighted to have the opportunity to present the all-new Audi Q2 to our guests here on Hamilton Island, so far ahead of its Australian launch next year,” said Audi Australia’s Managing Director, Andrew Doyle. “This important new entry point into the Audi SUV range has its own distinctive design language, and when it arrives next year, it will really raise the bar for the level of technology available at its price point.”
Full details and specifications will be made available closer to the Q2’s official Australian launch next year, but Audi has confirmed that its Audi Pre Sense Front which can detect objects or pedestrians in front of the vehicle and brake to a standstill from low speeds, will be standard across the Q2 range.
As always Audi will provide a plethora of options packages and individualisation opportunities for the Q2, with advanced features from Audi’s large cars, including the Virtual Cockpit instrument cluster, lane-departure warning, blind spot monitoring, and lane-keeping assistant, amongst others.
TMR will bring you more information about the new Q2 in the lead up to its official launch.
