Audi is extending its SUV presence with the introducton fo the new Q2, its smallest member of the Q range. The car was already introduced during this year Geneva Motor Show and now is ready to reach its first clients in fall. The orders begin this month.

The permanent all-wheel drive system supplies the necessary traction and grip. It is standard with the top diesel and gasoline engines. Both engines are paired with a newly developed seven-speed automatic.

In the connectivity and infotainment area, the Q2 offers technologies from the full-size class. The driver can use the optional touchpad to write and zoom in on the map while passengers surf and stream with smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices via a Wi-Fi hotspot. The speedometer and tachometer are projected in the optional fully digital Audi virtual cockpit with 12.3-inch screen.

The head-up display projects key vehicle data, including navigation instructions and driving speed, into the driver’s direct visual field.

A free app enables online media streaming and lets users transfer the calendar of a smartphone to the car’s screen. If the smartphone has an iOS operating system, it is even possible to transfer the address of a favorite restaurant or hotel directly into the Q2 navigation system.


Offering assistance in critical situations is the standard emergency braking assistant. If a child were to suddenly run into the street, or the car ahead were to brake abruptly to a stop, the Q2 can brake automatically in such situations.
