Makes its local debut at the show.
Along with the new Audi A4, the compact Audi Q2 made its Colombian debut at the 2016 Bogota Motor Show this month. Below are the compact SUV’s live images from the motor show, courtesy of IAB reader, Sebastian Altamar.
The Audi Q2 is the smallest product in Audi’s Q range of utility vehicles. It measures 4,191 mm long, 1,794 mm (2,009 mm with mirrors) wide and 1,508 mm tall, has a wheelbase of 2,601 mm and a 200 mm ride height.
The styling is unmistakably Audi, featuring angular projector headlamps with LED DRLs, large octagonal grille, 3-part intake in the front apron, body-painted cladding, LED taillamps, matte black C-pillar and silver skid plates on front and rear bumpers.
Inside, the Q2 features a simple design that draws cues from the Audi A3. At the center of the dashboard sits a freestanding MMI high res color display operated using a rotary/push-button control and two buttons on the centre tunnel. The model sold in Europe comes with a 12.3-inch Audi Virtual Cockpit display, MMI touchpad with MMI navigation plus and a Bang & Olufsen audio system as optional extras.
It’s based on the MQB (Modular Transverse Matrix), and offers a wide variety of engines for global markets, which include an 85 kW (116 hp) 1.0L TFSI petrol, 110 kW (150 hp) 1.4L TFSI petrol, 140 kW (190 hp) 2.0L TFSI petrol, 85 kW (116 hp) 1.6L TDI diesel, 110 kW (150 hp) 2.0L TDI diesel and 140 kW (190 hp) 2.0L TDI diesel. Transmission options are a 6-speed manual and 7-speed S tronic dual-clutch transmission, while a quattro AWD system is available in top-end variants.
The Audi Q2 will arrive in India either next year or in 2018.
