Audi Q2: edgy, affordable and funky

I drove Audi’s new Q2 premium compact SUV this week – joining Audi’s family of Q signature SUV’s the Q3, Q5 and Q7. Similar in size to the Q3 and starting just $1,800 more affordable the Audi Q2 is a more edgy design, more funky if you like and very appealing. Two models – 1.4-litre turbo-petrol front wheel drive from $41,400 and 2.0-litre turbo-diesel all-wheel- drive from $47.900 – both feature 7-speed dual clutch automatics with manual shift paddles. Given its younger market appeal the Audi Q2 places a lot of value on technology allowing you to surf and stream your mobile devices, there’s a big emphasis on entertainment technologies –for example, you can dictate text messages without taking your hands off the wheel – I recommend the optional Technik package at $2500 which gives you a virtual cockpit instrument cluster with 12.3 inch high resolution screen and navigation plus – the clarity and display options and usability of this feature is impressive to say the least.
