The best used V6 cars for under £10,000

The V6 engine has featured in all manner of cars over the years, but which are the ones can you now buy for under £10,000?
 

Audi’s new Q2 will cost from £20,230 when it goes on sale in August.

The fourth member of the German brand’s SUV range and described as the brand’s first crossover, the Q2 will be offered initially with a choice of a four-cylinder 1.6 TDI diesel of 114bhp or a 148bhp four-cylinder TFSI petrol with cylinder-on-demand technology.

This powertrain range will be extended later in 2016 by a three-cylinder 1.0 TFSI of 114bhp and a four-cylinder 2.0 TDI with 148bhp. All except the 1.0 will also be able to be specified with an S-tronic seven-speed dual clutch transmission.

Mid 2017 will see the addition of a 2.0 TFSI petrol engine with quattro all-wheel-drive and S tronic transmission, and at that point it will also be possible to combine the 148bhp TDI and TFSI engines with quattro.

   

Audi describes the Q2 as ‘high definition design meets highly intelligent technology’. It is designed to appeal to a younger audience than the brand’s existing SUVs – measuring 4.19 metres long, 1.79 metres wide and 1.51 metres tall, it has a 2.6-metre long wheelbase and short overhangs.

Much of the technology familiar in larger Audi models has cascaded down into the Q2, notably the virtual cockpit, head-up display and park assist, which are on the options list.

The Audi standard MMI screen is mounted high on the instrument panel and similar to the latest A3 includes operation of the infotainment system by a rotary/push-button control and two buttons on the centre tunnel.

A touchpad also features when buyers order the MMI navigation system, while smartphones with iOS and Android operating systems are integrated into the car using the standard Audi smartphone interface.

Customisation also forms an integral part of the Q2’s younger-buyer appeal. Several equipment packages, exterior colours and interior trim and seat upholstery shades are available while options include ‘LED lighting package advanced’, illuminating elements of the interior.

A new design of 16-inch alloy wheel is fitted as standard, but these can be expanded up to 19 inches.

The Q2 will be offered in Audi’s familiar SE, Sport and S Line trim levels and first cars are expected on UK roads in November 2016.
