AUDIQ2

Auto Express - - Winter Driving Special -

IT’S classed as a small crossover, but the Q2 is nearly as big as the age­ing Q3 (op­po­site) in some ar­eas. The lines are sim­i­lar to the A3 on which the Q2 is based, while the colour­coded C-pil­lars are said to be a homage to the R8 coupé.

As you would ex­pect, the in­te­rior de­liv­ers Audi’s usual ex­cel­lent qual­ity and de­sign, and there’s enough space for a fam­ily of four. The car is de­cent to drive, too, with tidy han­dling and a range of strong and will­ing petrol and diesel en­gines. How­ever, Haldex four-wheel drive is only avail­able with the most pow­er­ful 2.0-litre turbo petrol and diesel en­gines and S tronic auto box. Those mod­els are a touch pricey, but com­pet­i­tive fi­nance deals will help.

Price range: £21,360-£36,750 Our pick: 2.0 TDI 150 qu­at­tro S tronic Sport (£29,340) En­gine: 2.0-litre 4cyl diesel, 148bhp Trans­mis­sion: 7-spd auto, per­ma­nent 4WD Top speed: 131mph Econ­omy: 58.9mpg CO2: 125g/km
