The Audi Q2: the lightweight, 5-door, crossover SUV that ticks all the boxes has launched in New Zealand and is now available at Ebbett Audi.
Offering a wider range of customisation options than any other Audi model to date, the Q2 has been dubbed the “urban-type vehicle for everyday driving and recreation” by Dean Sheed, General Manager of Audi New Zealand.
The new compact SUV Q2 model will turn heads with a significantly different design than the traditional Audi line-up. With its “crouching” style, 18-inch alloy wheels and sporty appearance, the Audi Q2 appeals to a wider customer base within the SUV market.
Drivers no longer have to choose between style or cargo space, or drive an over-sized SUV in the city! The Q2 has urbanized the SUV, making for a practical yet visually appealing vehicle. The aggressive sporty design combined with practicality and 405 litres of space, (or up to 1,050 litres when the rear bench seat is folded down), makes for the perfect compact crossover.
The 2017 Audi Q2 comes with all the specs. The front-drive model is powered by a 1.4 litre turbopetrol TFSI engine, a seven-speed twin-clutch gearbox, and 110 kW and 250Nm of torque on demand technology. The Q2 goes from 0-100km/h in 8.5sec and has combined fuel consumption of 5.5L/100km. The driver experience with the Q2 is outstanding.
But that’s not all – the new Audi Q2 has built in driver assistance programmes with blind spot monitors, a pre-sense city driving detection safety system, driver assist city braking, parking sonar, and a rear view camera. These features make the Q2 safer and easier to drive, making this model ideal for the everyday driver.
With the interior featuring sports seats, MMI navigation, dual-zone climate air, comfort entry with push button start, smartphone interface and aluminium inlays, driving the new Audi Q2 is a luxury.
The Q2 customisation opportunities are endless with 11 colours to choose from, 11 contrasting C-pillar blades, and five different alloy wheels. Some options have been conveniently bundled into packages including: heated leather seats, a technology pack with Audi’s Virtual Cockpit and navigation upgrade, S line styling, LED interior lighting, automatic high beam control, adaptive cruise and park and lane assist. With so many personalisation opportunities available the Q2 can be tailored to meet every drivers exact requirements, making the vehicle their own.
Offering the perfect mix of style and technology the Q2 appeals to a wide range of buyers. This highly anticipated arrival of this spacious yet compact crossover not only opens new market segments for the Audi brand, but also opens up the SUV market to urban-based drivers. The new Audi Q2 is an exciting and innovative model that rounds off the Q-family very nicely and is proving to be a popular addition to the Audi line-up.
