Audi Q2 is the name most car enthusiasts across the globe are still unfamiliar with. Well, it’s to be expected since the compact is still in the works. In that respect, 2015 Audi Q2 is out of the question. However, this is exactly the year when most rumors started circulating around.
2015 Audi Q2 Engine
Q2 is set to make its debut at the upcoming Geneva Auto Show and we still have no clue as to what engines the Germans are planning for it. Since it’s being unveiled in Europe, first official specs will certainly be European too. This means that Q2 might just be offered with the latest small engines from Volkswagen’s portfolio. In other words, the new compact crossover could be offered with engines as small as 1.0L three-cylinders and as strong as 2.0L 4-cylinders.
The 6-speed manual transmission should be standard in Europe, while DSG automatic should be presented as an optional upgrade. As for the US version – let us first take a glimpse at the Euro models. There’s probably still plenty of time before the little guy makes it across the pond, but you can certainly forget about 3-cylinder and probably even diesel options.
Audi Q2 Exterior
While we wait for its official debut, Q2 has been presented in the first teaser video in mid-February 2016. As you can clearly imagine, there’s not much we could decipher from that video besides the car being yellow.
Well, that probably doesn’t help too much, but we can certainly have some expectations and they say we should expect something quite similar to Q3 – only smaller. This might sound like a cliche, but it’s the only thing we have at this point and before the show in Geneva – things will probably remain that way.
There’s even less to say about the upcoming Q2’s interior. Like its larger siblings, small crossover too will likely offer a few leather upholstery options, and both aluminum and wood inlays. Technology package, however, should be slightly below par compared to that of Q3, and especially Q5 and Q7.
Popping touch screen display should still be offered, though, and so should be Bose speakers. Both, however, will be smaller and lesser in terms of quantity. As far as safety goes, expect the new Q2 to offer standard anti-lock brakes, all necessary airbags, stability control, hill-descent control, rearview camera and a few more optional advanced goodies.
2015 Audi Q2 Price
Since it’s still uncertain which powertrains will move the car, it’s also quite hard to predict its fuel economy. We can only say that Q2 should be the most efficient crossover in Audi’s range, and if 3-cylinder engines do make it into the lineup, it could be the most efficient by far. Prices are also undisclosed at this point, but less than $30,000 should be expected as a starting price.
2015 Audi Q2‘s time has passed. It didn’t arrive that early, but 2016 or 2017 year models will be offered with certainty. Smallest Audi’s crossover to date should deliver the well-known quality we have come to expect from the Germans – only in smaller, more efficient package.
