Audi Q2 – Design and Features
On the exterior, the Q2 sports a number of bespoke styling touches that lend it a unique character. Up front, there’s a large, single-frame grille flanked by a pair of chunky headlights. The black cladding across the bumpers, wheel arches and running boards gives it a rugged look. International models even come with an R8-style blade on the C-pillar that can be optioned in multiple finishes. At the rear, a wide tailgate and square-ish tail-lamps provide it with a squat stance.
With the new LED headlamps (which are now standard on the Q2), a reworked bumper design with larger, slightly more angular air intakes, and a revised Singleframe grille, and new segmented LED DRLs, the updated Q2 looks quite aggressive and appealing for its size. Similarly, the five-sided polygon design can now be found on the rear as well, flanking the diffuser insert.
At the interior, the cabin of the new Audi is kinda lack of luster and shine but still it manages to look premium. Although it has a clean and simple design which makes it more beautiful. Key highlights include turbine-style air vents and a high-set multimedia screen that can be operated via a rotary dial placed on the centre console. Given the compact dimensions, passengers could find the space at a bit of a premium. Boot space is rated at 405 litres for front-wheel-drive versions, however, the Quattro all-wheel-drive layout that we will be getting, sees the capacity fall to 355 litres.
Other features include LED headlamps, alloy wheels, ambient lighting, panoramic sunroof, Audi’s ‘MMI Navigation Plus’ infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, wireless charging and a 12.3-inch ‘Virtual Cockpit’ digital instrument cluster. Standard safety kit will include multiple airbags, ABS, electronic stability control, and traction control.
