Audi Q2 wears a look inspired by gridiron and the iconic Audi quattro

Anyone thinking the all-new Audi Q2 is just a scaled-down version of the Q3 couldn’t be more wrong. With the newest member of Audi’s high-riding Q stable, the designers have clearly broken from the matryoshka-style practice of serving up the same design in different sizes...

Audi Q2 here early 2017, priced from around $40,000

The all-new Audi Q2 launched to a gathering of international press in Switzerland last week, but Australian buyers will have to wait until early 2017 for the chance to drive Audi’s newest and smallest SUV.

Audi Q2 Review

Read the full review here. First impressions are almost always dangerous, especially in the automotive world – a hard fact we discovered after taking the all-new Audi Q2 for a spin in Europe recently. I can’t quite remember when Audi first made mention of its plan to build the Q2, but my naturally cynical reaction was; does the world really need an Audi SUV that’s even smaller than the Q3?

What to do when you damage a wheel

Gutter rash does happen, and it doesn’t have to ruin your week. There’s no doubt that the trend towards larger rim sizes, in even fairly non-sport oriented cars, has continued...

What to do when you damage a wheel

Gutter-jumpers, kerb-crushers, pothole-thumpers - if you fall into any of these categories then it's likely you've damaged a wheel or two during your driving career. In fact, I’m sure most of us have, at one time or another, misjudged a corner or failed to see a pothole and heard that horrible graunching sound...
