Audi Q2 crossover will be the newest and most affordable from the German luxury automaker’s stable
Audi Q2 is the latest offering from the German luxury automaker’s Q range. In short, Q2 is a restyled smaller version of Q3. Apart from the size and overall shape, the new mini crossover will surely get some unique styling inputs from the German automaker. Compare to the well received Q3, the car gets a lower waistline and lower roofline as well.
As we have already seen from the videos released by Audi, the car gets signature front grille with the four ring logo at the centre, the headlamps get hammer like LED daytime running lamps and square shaped units, a backward sloping roofline making a coupe like appearance. As the spyshots appeared, the car won’t sport a higher ground clearance, which is probably as Audi won’t sell this car as a hardcore off-roader. Rather it will be a slight tough looking stylish and sporty looking city crossover.
The interior of the Audi cars are something which radiate elegance, style and luxury. Audi Q2 interior is expected to get design cues from the new generation Q7, while it will also get some inputs from the A1 hatchback.
The Audi Q2 will be available in both petrol and diesel powertrain options. The petrol variant will get 1.4 litre TFSI unit under the hood churning out around 130-180 hp peak power. The diesel variant on the other hand is expected to get dual powertrain options, which are 1.6 litre and 2.0 litre TDI engines.
While the smaller diesel unit will pump out around 120-150 hp peak power, the larger engine will deliver around 200 hp peak power. Rumors are that Audi Q2 will be available in a performance oriented 200 hp variant as well. Being the most affordable crossover, Audi Q2 will be available at around 30 lakh.
Although it is not sure, when Audi will launch the car in our market, we can expect it to hit the Indian shores in late 2016. Mini Countryman and BMW X2 will be the worthy competitors against the upcoming Audi Q2. Although Audi lovers might be excited about this car, but will it be a good buy, when Audi Q3 is already available at around 30-38 lakh in India? What do you think?
