Audi will open the order books for its smallest SUV, the Q2, in the United Kingdom in August and the first deliveries will commence in November.
A total of three grades will be available, starting with the entry-level SE and its £20,230 price tag, which rides on 16-inch alloy wheels and its standard equipment includes heated and electrically adjustable side mirrors, MMI radio plus, MMI controller, Bluetooth interface and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone connectivity.
For a £1,550 premium, the Sport adds 17-inch alloys, an SD-card based MMI navigation system with 3-month trial unlocking the Audi connect portfolio, red or yellow inlays for the interior, cruise control, cloth sport seats, light and rain sensors and the Audi Drive Select, with five operational modes.
Fork out $2,250 more and you get the S Line with its styling enhancements, 18-inch alloy wheels, LED lights on both ends, front sport seats wrapped in cloth/leather upholstery with S embossing on the backrests, LED interior lighting, multi-function perforated leather steering wheel and inlays finished in brushed aluminum.
At the time of its launch, the Audi Q2 will be offered with a choice of two four-bangers, the 1.4-liter TFSI petrol with 150 PS (148 HP) and the 1.6-liter TDI diesel, rated at 115 PS (113 HP). These will be joined, later this year, by a three-pot 1.0-liter TFSI, with 115 PS (113 HP) and a four-cylinder 2.0-liter TDI, which develops 150 PS (148 HP). Lesser versions will be paired with a six-speed manual gearbox, while plusher ones will get a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic.
From mid-2017, a 2.0-liter TFSI petrol unit will be added to the lineup, mated to an S Tronic transmission and the brand’s Quattro all-wheel drive. At that point, it will be possible to combine the 150 PS TFSI and TDI mills with AWD.
