German car maker has a very large offer of different models. When it is about SUVs, we will soon see one completely new model. This segment of cars is probably the fastest-growing in last decade, so it isn’t wonder that there will be one more model in offer. It will be a subcompact crossover, which will be called Q2. It will be the smallest crossover in company’s lineup and it will come as 2016 Audi Q2. The arrival of this crossover is planned for the end of year.
2016 Audi Q2 design
The 2016 Audi Q2 will be the smallest crossover in company’s lineup. It will belong to the class of subcompact crossovers. It will ride on the VW’s A0 platform, which is used for various models like VW Polo, Skoda Fabia, Seat Ibiza etc. Of course, it will be adapted for AWD configuration, which will be offered as optional. When it is about car’s look, we will see modern and attractive look, which will be completely adapted to the company’s new design language. Since it has even No. in its name, it is easily to conclude that 2016 Q2 will feature coupe-like body style. This could be considered as potential weakness of this model, because it is very risky to put visual appearance in the focus instead functionality, in this segment of small cars.
2016 Audi Q2 engine
Like every model from Volkswagen family, 2016 Audi Q2 will be available in plenty of variants, when it is about engines. This platform could be fitted to several petrol and diesel engines. When it is about petrol engines, we expect to see 1.2 liter, 1.4 liter and 2.0 liter TSI units, equipped with optional cylinder deactivation, while 2.5 5-cylinder turbo engine is possible, but most likely won’t be offered. When it is about diesel units, expect to see well-known and proven 1.6 and 2.0 liter TDI engines in offer, available with various outputs. The 2016 Audi Q2 will be offered with various transmissions – five- and six-speed manuals, and six- and seven-speed dual-clutch automatics.
2016 Audi Q2 release date and competition
The 2016 Audi Q2 will probably come in late 2015, eventually in early 2016. When it is about competition, there are many models in this segment. The arch rivals will probably be Mini Coutryman and Paceman, but there are also models like Mercedes-Benz GLA, or Opel Mokka/Buick Encore.
