The sum total of what three have been examples of overcoming adversity, beyond any doubt, however benefit loaded varieties and passages in other size classes have been obvious by their nonappearance. Enter the Q2, which starts the quick extension of Audi's SUV lineup.
The Q2 will be gone for a far more youthful demographic than even the Q3, and it's relied upon to speak to individuals for whom past Audi autos and SUVs have appeared somewhat stodgy. To this point, at any rate in Europe, the passage level Q2 will use front-wheel drive—Audi figures the objective clients will see relinquishing Quattro all-wheel drive as adequate consequently at a lower cost—and pack a 114-hp 1.0-liter turbocharged three-barrel gas motor.

Without a doubt, the little Q2 apparently has been packed with each bit of innovation the VW Group could gin up. The top-level renditions will pack Audi's Virtual Cockpit, a 12.3-creep superior quality computerized show that replaces the simple speedometer and tachometer, and which can be redone to highlight current needs, similar to route data, trip information, or the sound framework.
