Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.
Update – A new video teaser shows the TT-inspired LED daytime running lights of the Audi Q2.
To debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.
Audi has dropped a slightly-more revealing teaser of the Audi Q2, which gives away an idea of the headlamp/taillamp designs, as well as the distinctive character lines running across the side profile.
The Q2 will follow Audi’s latest design language which was previewed by the Audi e-tron quattro at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. It features Audi’s characteristic angular design with swept back LED headlamps, large grille, and a sporty front bumper. Given that it will be smaller than the Q3 but will have to allow space for an even smaller model Q1 model, expect its length to fall between 4.0 metres and 4.39 metres.
The Audi Q2 will ride on the MQB modular platform that underpins the VW Golf and Audi A3. Engine lineup could include a 1.4-litre TFSI turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine for base variants, whereas higher models could get bigger 2.0 TFSI and TDI engines. Transmission choices include 6-speed manual, 6-speed S tronic and 7-speed S tronic, while a quattro AWD system should be optional in higher variants.
The Audi Q2 will have its premiere at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show on March 1. It is expected to go on sale in this fall in key European markets.
