Fully kitted-up Q2 only for the very successful
Small SUV is a polished act all-round. But keep the calculator on hand when ordering, says
premium price. The exterior styling is intriguing and the interior reeks of German quality. Audi isn’t quite as over-the-top with its interior materials as it used to be, but the Q2 has as much touchy-feely stuff inside as the larger, more expensive A4.
And some of those options are pretty cool. The Virtual Cockpit gives you a digital instrument panel that be configured in different views, including one that minimises the traditional stuff (speed/revs) and allocates the majority of the display area to the sat-nav map. Love it.
The Q2 is largely responsible for tipping Audi NZ’S overall sales in favour of SUVS - from 45 per cent of its volume last year to 53 year-to-date April. It’s an important vehicle.
You don’t have to spend the really big bucks, of course. Opt for a showroom-standard Q2 and you still get the cheerful performance and high-quality cabin. But such a car will probably be a very rare sight.
Fully dressed-up Q2 looks pretty striking. But then it can also be very expensive: this one is nudging $70k.
