The all-new Audi Q2 compact SUV has been revealed at this week’s Geneva motor show, joining its larger stablemates the small Q3, mid-sized Q5 and large Q7.
The German marque claims the Audi Q2 is the all-round SUV with an urban focus, and it is likely to become a popular option in Australia’s hot-selling SUV market.
Angular styling, chunky quarters, low roofline and a sleek glasshouse highlight the Q2’s exterior design, with Audi claiming these elements gives the Audi Q2 coupe-like styling and “a crouching stance on the road”.
The concave flanks echo signature Audi quattro styling and the Q2 is certainly compact externally, measuring 1510mm tall, 1790mm wide, 4190mm long and with a wheelbase of 2600mm. This makes it about 200mm shorter than the Audi Q3.
Inside the Q2’s cabin, the compact SUV benefits from trickle-down technology of its larger brethren. Audi’s virtual cockpit is optional, but there’s a head-up display and the driver assistance systems for the Q2 come from the full-size class, including the Audi pre sense front system.
