2018 Audi Q2 1.4 TFSI Reviews, Interior, Engine Specs – Audi arrives in a market where the brand was not, that of small SUV premium. The builder says so without a detour, his target will be the mini Coutryman. A future bestseller? Here are some of the answers.
2018 Audi Q2 Redesign
Never two without three! After the Q7 and the Q5, the little 2018 Audi Q2 shows the tip of his nose. And it starts first with an atypical appearance, which surprises for an Audi, where the models tend to all look alike. The last born has his own style. The front panel, of course, displays a single frame grille, with an embossed grille. The rectangular lights are full led, with a specific light signature. The profile exhibits a new shoulder and a blade (design element inaugurated on the R8) on the C-pillar. At the back, 3d square lights and a shield base emphasizing its small adventurer side of the cities. Its design turns out to be rather modern and chic, with a semblance of audacity.
Interior style and equipment
Inside, you will find yourself in the atmosphere of the Audi A3. A rather clean and horizontal style. Is the finish quality similar to what is expected of a ring-struck vehicle? We’ll let you guess the answer. This is an option depending on the range selection, but the virtual cockpit, this color screen instead of the counters, becomes the norm for each new model or restyling. It would almost double with the great who sits on the dashboard. It feels rather well installed at the front, with an easily adjustable driving position. From the point of view of equipment, the Q2 has all the superior models. Jumbles the active file keeping, the automatic controller in traffic jams, the parking aids etc. At the back, the trip will be acceptable to the places at the ends. As for the safe, with 405 liters of capacity, it is a good figure.
Chassis and Motorization, 0 – 100km/h
Under the hood of 2018 Audi Q2 SV, a 1.4 petrol TFSI of 150 hp. The trend of the segment being to move away from the diesel, we are not unhappy with the model made available to us. On the technical data sheet, interesting performance figures can be read, in particular, the 0 to 100 km/h ran in less than 9 seconds. The improvement of the petrol blocks makes them for many now couple at low speed, and this is the case here with a maximum torque of 250 nm to 1 500 rpm. The recoveries benefit of course, with an extension and a linearity more appreciable than that of a diesel. The driving is undoubtedly more enjoyable. This is probably the most homogeneous configuration of the catalog. Do not forget to check the S-Tronic at the option level, it is clearly a plus that is appreciated on a daily basis.
2018 Audi Q2 Test Drive
At the wheel, we like to first enjoy the comfort equipment, especially on the highway. For those who are not refractory to the latest technologies of driving aid, this is an increasingly inevitable breakthrough, especially for the big rollers. In addition, you can rent a quality soundproofing with a stabilized look and a good comfort. The surprise comes from the moment we find ourselves on more tortuous roads. The variable direction, which according to the speed imposes more or less steering wheel turns, makes the car surprisingly dynamic. This greatly facilitates the placement, with a particularly incisive self. The rigor of the damping completes the painting and largely forgets the ground clearance superior to a compact. A very good SUV of the road in sum. Without paying particular attention, even the opposite, consumption is kept below the 10 liters, which can suggest that in real conditions without forcing, one table on a figure somewhere between 8 and 9.
2018 Audi Q2 Price and conclusion
The base is ideal for a future vitamin version. And one saliva in advance to the idea of being able to drive it soon, if it happens. In the meantime, for those who would find a 500 not enough premium, Audi, therefore, brings its answer. But to place yourself above the fray, you have to be prepared to deal with the indecency tariffs. The range starts at 24,900 EURO in petrol 116 hp, €26,900 for the same diesel power. Note that it can be Quattro an 150 ch and that it has the full transmission on versions 190 ch. This is obviously out of the options. With almost everything we need, our test model exceeds 46 000 €, a rate that has nothing more compact.
