Starting outside, you’ll notice the lower set singleframe grille, with three slots at the top that are a subtle nod to the original rally-winning quattro. The grille also features a polygon design motif that is echoed on the rear diffuser. Front air intakes are bigger and more angular, there are new bumpers front and rear and the C pillar is finished in contrasting colours depending on the model. Inside, there are front sports seats, 60:40 split folding rear seats and 405 litres of boot space. Customers have a wide choice of trim packages, all with Audi’s acclaimed design refinement and material quality as standard.


From launch in the UK the Q2 will be available with the 150PS 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine, delivering 52-55mpg and producing 124–116 g/km CO2. Acceleration from 0-62mph takes 8.6 seconds, and to save fuel under low load the engine can deactivate two cylinders. This powertrain, badged 35 TFSI, will be available with both a six-speed manual and 7-speed S tronic transmission driving the front wheels. All-wheel drive quattro transmission and more powertrains will become available in 2021.

All Q2 models come with Audi pre-sense front, which uses sensors to detect vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians in front of the car, initiating emergency braking if necessary. Rear parking sensors and hill-hold assist are also standard. Options include Matrix headlights with dynamic cornering light, active lane assist, side assist, traffic jam assist and cross-traffic assist rear (all standard on the flagship Vorsprung model).
