Audi India has been avoiding small cars like the Audi A1 and Audi A3 so far, but given that the Audi Q2 is a crossover, it may eventually land in the market sooner or later. With an aim to increase its perceived value for the premium pricing in India, the German automaker is reportedly considering to launch the Q2 in the long-wheelbase version which otherwise was bound to be a China-only derivative. Among other developments, is an S peformance variant set to join the SQ5 TDI, SQ5 TFSI and SQ7 TDI by 2018.
