0-62mph comes in 6.5sec; it’s the hottest Q2 ahead of the forthcoming Mini Countryman JCW-rivalling SQ2
A new top-spec Audi Q2 has been added to the small SUV’s range, with a 187bhp 2.0-litre petrol engine and quattro four-wheel drive.
The Q2 2.0 TFSI quattro will be the quickest Q2 until the introduction of the SQ2. It can accelerate from 0-62mph in 6.5sec – the same time as the Ford Focus ST – and its top speed is 141mph. It’s also the first petrol-powered Q2 to be available with Audi’s famed four-wheel drive system.
Audi claims 44.8mpg and 144g/km for the car in S line trim, and 44.1mpg and 146g/km for Edition #1 models, due to their 19in alloys in place of S line’s 18in.
Standard kit for the Q2 2.0 TFSI quattro includes automatic LED headlights and rain-sensing wipers, ambient lighting, MMI sat-nav and Audi Connect infotainment.
Prices start at £31,760 and rise to £36,750, before options, putting the Q2 2.0 TFSI quattro in line with lower-spec Audi Q3s and higher-end Mini Countrymans.
