Audi Q2: still the same SUV
The Ingolstadt firm is giving its city SUV a discreet faceliftAudi Q2. Not enough to cry out for revolution. The aesthetic changes are really of the order of powdering, including standard LED headlights, accompanied by the appearance of new shields. The smart headlights, Matrix LED, are available as an option. The changes are also visible through the range of paints. The color scheme welcomes five new shades: Apple Green, Manhattan Gray, Navarra Blue, Arrow Gray and Turbo Blue
In the cabin, it's in the same vein. The alterations are light. The small SUV still doesn't get a fully digital dashboard like its big sisters. The Q2 therefore retains the rotary knobs, but offers a new style for the gear knob, a new selector for the Automatic box S tronic and new air vents.
Five engines: but not yet!
TheAudi Q2 is launched on the European market with a single gasoline engine. At least when it was launched, because the Q2 my 2021 will be entitled to 5 engines.
TheAudi Q2 1.5 TFSI develops 150 horsepower and delivers 250 Nm of torque. This engine is well known to us as it is already present on a good number of models of the Volkswagen group. It is known to be economical thanks to cylinder deactivation system. In the figures, this gives an NEDC standardized consumption between 5.4 and 5.1 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers. This corresponds to CO2 emissions of 124 to 116 grams of CO2 per kilometer.
The Audi Q2 1.5 TFSI rolls off the assembly line with a standard six-speed manual transmission and the optional seven-speed S tronic.
Quattro all-wheel drive is available on certain engine versions. Its multi-plate clutch, which transfers part or all of the engine torque to the rear wheels as needed, belongs to a new generation. It weighs around a kilogram less than its predecessor while offering increased efficiency thanks to various details such as bearings and oil supply.
Other TDI and TFSI engines will be available before the end of the year. All engines comply with the new Euro 6 AP emissions standard, and diesel engine dual metering technology minimizes NOx emissions. Two SCR catalytic converters work together: one is located directly behind the engine and the other is installed in the vehicle floor. They cover different driving situations and complement each other.
