Let’s take a break from big and fancy stuff and checkout one of 2016 Geneva Motor Show’s smallest, yet most significant cars. It’s the all-new Audi Q2 we’re talking about, the fourth member of Audi Q family and that offers all the goodness of this series in a more compact package.
To give you an idea just how compact Audi Q2 really is, the car has a length of 4.19, a width of 1.79 meters, and height of 1.51 meters. It’s the perfect size for a city crossover, but it’s designed to have a presence way above its pay grade. The Q2 features a high-mounted Singleframe grille and C-pillars with color offset blades.
Audi engineers have also packed the small crossover full of comfort and safety technologies, including head-up display, Audi pre sense front with auto brake, adaptive cruise control with Stop & Go function, traffic jam assist, the lane-departure warning system Audi side assist, the lane-keeping assistant Audi active lane assist, traffic sign recognition and rear cross-traffic assist.
Engine-wise, the 2017 Audi Q2 (going on sale in November this year) launches in Europe with five powertrains, including a 1.0-litre three-cylinder TFSI, two four-cylinder petrol with 1.4 and 2.0 litres displacement, and two four-cylinder diesel engines in 1.6 and 2.0 litres capacities. You can choose between a six-speed manual or a seven-speed S tronic dual clutch transmission, but quattro AWD depends on the engine you pick.
