Audi A2 2020 Rumors

Although there’s nothing new about pint-sized SUVs, the Audi Q2 was one of the first to combine compact dimensions with a premium badge on its snout. But while it’s about the same size as a Seat Arona and Renault Captur, it costs as much as the larger Skoda Karoq and Seat Ateca.

Under the bonnet, you’ll find a selection of petrol and diesel engines delivering between 113bhp and 187bhp. Unlike some rivals, you can have four-wheel drive, albeit only on the most potent petrol and diesel variants.

Over the next few pages, we’ll look at all aspects of the Q2 to see if it’s better than premium rivals such as the Mini Countryman. If you’re already smitten, have a look at our new car deals here. You could save a packet at a dealer near you.

Audi A2 2020 Performance

If you prefer petrol to diesel, the 1.0 TFSI is fine for town and light motorway use, but can struggle at higher speeds when loaded up to the roof. However, for more flexible performance, the 148bhp 1.4 TFSI is a better bet. It’s got plenty of mid-range shove and makes a better fist of propelling a fully laden Q2.

And if you want even more shove, the 187bhp 2.0 TFSI sits at the top of the tree. It’s undoubtedly quick, but you have to work it hard before it feels that way. Given that you can only get it in S line or top-spec Edition #1 trim, you’ll pay a lot for the privilege, too.

Although the 2.0 TDI 150 is the punchiest diesel in the range, you can order it only from mid-spec Sport trim with an automatic gearbox and quattro four-wheel drive, making it a pricey option. Therefore, anyone looking for low running costs with decent performance will find the 1.6 TDI a better bet. It’s not outright quick, but it delivers good pulling power from low to mid revs, so will haul a Q2 full of people and luggage along quite happily.

Whatever size and shape you are, it’s unlikely that you’ll have a problem with the Q2’s driving position. The steering wheel has a great range of movement up and down as well as in and out. You also get a height-adjustable driver’s seat on all variants.

The seat itself is supportive and nicely aligned with the pedals, helping to keep you comfortable on a long journey. It’s a shame that lumbar adjustment doesn’t come as standard, though.

Much of the dashboard layout is borrowed from the tried-and-tested A3, so the layout works well. The dials are easy to read, while the switches and button fall easily to hand. That said, some of the plastics and switches don’t feel quite as plush the A3’s.

Audi has a pretty fine track record of creating smart and beautifully built interiors, and so it is in the Q2, which borrows the A3’s minimalist dashboard architecture and excellent materials. While it isn’t quite as plush as the A3, it’s one of the finest small SUV interiors out there.

The upper surfaces look smart and feel soft to the touch, while the switches and buttons operate with a precise click; the rotary climate control buttons, for example, tick satisfyingly when you rotate them. There’s also a pleasant mix of materials and you can personalise the car with any number of optional interior trim combinations. Additional ambient lighting adds to the sense of occasion at night.

Audi A2 2020 Costs

Although the Q2 is a little pricier than mainstream rivals such as the Seat Arona and Renault Captur, it’s still a sensible buy. That’s because the premium badge and sporty SUV styling will have people queuing up to buy one, boding well for future resale values. Monthly PCP finance deals are surprisingly affordable, too.

The most efficient engine is the 1.6 diesel, which emits just 114g/km of CO2 if you stick with the standard six-speed gearbox. However, even the 148bhp 1.4 petrol emits a very reasonable 124g/km. Our True MPG tests have revealed the Q2 to be impressively frugal; the 1.4 petrol returned 45.3mpg.
