Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Despite being the brand's smallest SUV, the 2017 Audi Q2 has some big shoes to fill, especially considering it costs nearly as much as its slightly bigger brother, the Q3.
the new Audi Q2 is a pretty solid all-round package. It looks and (for the most part) feels premium, offers the company's latest infotainment and driver assist technologies, and can be personalised to a far greater extent than its stablemates thanks to the array of bright colours, contrasting body elements, and affordable option packages.

Pros
Effortless performance
Sporty dynamics
Practical cabin
All-round ability
Quattro grip
Bold design inside and out
Decent equipment list

Cons
Options can get pricey, some features should be standard
Tyre roar at higher speeds
Firm ride can be harsh over sharper bumps
Stingy use of soft-touch plastics
Limited cabin storage

Small SUVs have been a thing for a while now, so it seems odd that it's only now Audi has finally brought its take on the idea to market. The Q2 enters the fray in a segment occupied by a gaggle of (cheaper) French and Japanese cars, as well and the new Mini Countryman.

Pros
Great looks
Good chassis
Decent spec list

Cons
Rear storage, especially in the 1.4
Some cheap plastics
1.4's ride/handling (relative to 2.0 TDI)

By:

The Audi Q2 is an upmarket crossover that shares its platform with the Audi A3. It is an obvious rival to the Mini Countryman, but the company also hopes its premium badge can tempt buyers away from the likes of the funkily styled Nissan Juke, Renault Captur and Citroen Cactus. An elephant in the room comes in the form of the Q3, which can’t match the Q2’s box-fresh appeal but is slightly bigger and also available with larger savings.
Audi has given the Q2 distinctive looks that mark it out from the rest of the range, which tends to be conservatively styled.

Pros
Great cabin
Modern engines
Spacious for its size

Cons
Gets pricy with options
Some rivals are more practical
No fast version yet
