Pricing and equipment details for the all-new 2017 Audi Q2 have been confirmed today, ahead of the new baby SUV’s February 24 on-sale date.
As revealed during the 2017 Q2’s glitzy first Australian appearance in September last year, the range will kick off from $41,100. (All prices exclude on-road costs.)
That spend will get you into the front-wheel-drive Q2 Design 1.4 TFSI, driven by – as its name suggests – a 1.4-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine.
Further into the range is the $47,900 Q2 Sport 2.0 TDI quattro, powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo diesel engine.
Above both in price and equipment is the $49,900 Q2 Launch Edition, picking up more kit – but drawing motivation from the same 1.4-litre engine that propels the range opener.
All three models in the initial Audi Q2 range are equipped exclusively with Audi’s seven-speed S tronic dual-clutch automatic transmission.
The 1.4 TFSI engine produces 110kW of power and 250Nm of torque, with fuel consumption listed at 5.3 litres per 100km on the combined cycle.
Opting for the 2.0 TDI, matched with quattro all-wheel drive, delivers 110kW and 340Nm, with fuel use a touch more frugal at 5.0L/100km.
Standard kit with the Q2 will include autonomous emergency braking (AEB) at speeds up to 65km/h, and Parking System Plus with rear-view camera and rear cross-traffic alert.
Audi’s 12.3-inch Virtual Cockpit display (full digital instrument cluster) is available as an option, while standard kit includes a 7.0-inch main display with MMI Navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth connectivity with smartphone interfacing and voice control, automatic dual-zone climate control, leather-accented seats, and an auto-dimming interior mirror.
Audi Connect will be available across the range as standard, adding Google Earth and Google Search, along with a Wi-Fi hotspot feature.
Beyond the entry-level Design model, the Sport also gets sports seats, a powered tailgate and Audi Side Assist (blind-spot monitoring).
On the outside, all regular models get a contrasting C-pillar ‘blade’. The Design model gets 17-inch alloy wheels and the Sport rolls on 18s.
Go to $50,000 and beyond – by the time you’re on the road – and your Launch Edition pack will add S Line exterior styling with black contrasting, including a black C-pillar blade, and 19-inch alloys.
The Launch Edition also gets items that might surprise by going absent from the Design and Sport models, including adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go, and Active Lane Assist. As with the Sport, it also gets Side Assist.
The Q2 boasts 405 litres of cargo space with the rear seats upright, expanding to 1050 litres when the back pews are laid flat.
The Q2 goes on sale on February 24, although you might talk a dealer into finalising a sale before then.
CarAdvice drove the Q2 in mid-2016, overseas, and our first Australian drive will occur on February 20 and 21. Watch for our review then.

UPDATE: This article originally stated that Virtual Cockpit is standard fit. It is in fact optional. Waiting on pricing, will update article again when we have it.
