The best used V6 cars for under £10,000

Audi is now taking orders from UK customers for the new Q2 mini SUV range, which is expected to arrive in showrooms in November.

Although an entry-level 1.0-litre model priced at £20,230 has been announced, it will not be available from launch and the initial range will kick off from £22,380 on-road instead.

The Audi Q2 is built on the Volkswagen Group’s current MQB platform, which already underpins the latest Audi A3 and TT models, as well as several Volkswagen, SEAT and Škoda vehicles. It is smaller than the Q3 model, which is still built on the previous-generation Audi A3 platform. It will compete against the likes of the new MINI Countryman, which is set to launch before the end of this year.

SE, Sport and S Line models will be available from launch, in a choice of 1.4-litre turbo petrol or 1.6-litre turbo diesel engines. Along with the 1.0-litre petrol engine, a 2.0 turbo diesel will join the range a month or so after launch.

   

Like most mini-SUVs, the vast majority of the Audi Q2 range will not have a 4×4 drivetrain. None of the launch-specification models will have Audi’s quattro all-wheel-drive system available, although the 2.0-litre TDI model with quattro will be available to order from September. Once the full roll-out is complete in mid-2017, there will be four versions available with quattro.

AEB standard, good crash test results expected

All Audi Q2 models will be fitted as standard with autonomous emergency braking, which Audi calls Pre-Sense Front. Additional safety technology like adaptive cruise control and lane assist systems are available as options. Vehicles built on the MQB platform have generally received good Euro NCAP crash test scores, and we expect that the Q2 will be no different.

The Q2 range will unsurprisingly feature a high level of connectivity and infotainment, including Bluetooth and support for both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Satnav is standard on Sport and S Line models.

The S Line models, which are always popular in the UK, will get full-LED lighting front and rear (and inside), along with 18-inch alloy wheels, partial leather sports seats, and the usual plastic/chrome/aluminium trim differences.

A limited-edition ‘Edition #1’ version will also be available to order from next month, with a two-tone grey exterior, 19-inch alloy wheels and seats of fine nappa leather. It will start at £31,170 on-road.
