After launching the top-of-the-line RS Q8 recently, Audi has decided to shift its focus towards the other end of the Q line-up in India. The Q2 price ranges from Rs 34.99 lakh to Rs 48.89 lakh (both prices, ex-showroom). There are five trim levels to choose from – Standard, Premium, Premium Plus, Premium Plus I, Premium Plus II and Technology.
These are further divided into two design-based trims – Advanced Line and Design Line. Audi will be providing a complimentary ‘Peace of Mind’ package which includes a 5-year service package to Q2 customers for a limited amount of time.
Under the hood sits a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder TFSI engine which churns out 187 bhp and 32.63 kgm of torque. This motor is mated to a 7-speed S Tronic dual-clutch transmission and comes with the famed quattro permanent all-wheel-drive system. There’s also a four-link suspension along with the Audi Drive Select System.
Design-wise, the Q2 comes with a single-frame grille up-front with octagonally designed air inlets. There’s a slight slope in the roofline towards the back end which compliments the roof spoiler and diffuser. The Audi Q2 is 1548mm tall, 1805 mm wide, 4318 cm long and has a wheelbase of 2593 mm. Boot space measures up to 405 litres but can be expanded to 1,050 litres.
Inside there’s Audi’s signature virtual cockpit with multiple display modes. The Q2 also gets LED ambient lighting with 10 colours to choose from. The flat-bottom steering wheels and sport seats at the front add to the interior’s style. In the middle sits an 8.3-inch MMI screen with navigation and Audi’s smartphone interface.
Moreover, the Audi Sound System comes with 10 loudspeakers including a subwoofer, and a 6-channel amplifier that produces 180 watts. The Germans have also equipped the Q2 with Audi Phone Box, a system which keeps your phone charged wirelessly and lets you take phone calls too.
Besides that, there are 8 colours to choose from and the panoramic glass sunroof is an additional extra for Rs 1.5 lakh. There are a further 4 interior swatches and 2 alloy wheel options, letting you customise your Audi Q2 to your heart’s content.
