The Q2, the latest and currently the smallest member of Audi’s Q family, is now available across dealerships in the Middle East. A compact crossover aimed at a younger clientele, the Q2 shares its main styling features with other larger Audis, and its low, sloping roofline and a high beltline gives it a sportier appearance.
In keeping with the interests of its target audience, the Q2 comes equipped with a host of connectivity and infotainment features. There’s an optional touchpad to scroll through the menu, while a Wi-Fi hotspot lets passengers surf the web and stream music and videos using their smartphones or tablets. It also comes with a head-up display that shows key vehicle data, including navigation instructions and speed into the windscreen.
The Q2 also boasts many safety features that are usually seen in models a couple of notches higher. These include the standard emergency braking that actuates the brake automatically in assistant if it detects a pedestrian of another vehicle in front of it. Additionally, it features adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, and lane keep assist among others.
Although not meant for heavy duty off-roading, the Q2 still comes equipped with a permanent all-wheel drive system as standard. Three engine options ranging from 116 horsepower to 190 horsepower will be available mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. Prices start at Dh105,470.
