    I must have missed this site before.... Quote: "The Audi Q2 is the type of car that breaks with conventional thinking. It doesn’t fit into any pigeon hole. Its customers are exactly the same – they are young, expressive and not always entirely conformist. And this is exactly why they’re cool and want to drive a cool car." https://audi-illustrated.com/en/q2

    Hey all, i've attended the first Q2 presentation to public over here in Holland. The red car is the 1.6TDI pimped up costing roundabout € 55K TjingTjing. It's the Sport version with Pro line S and Sline exterior and a whole lot of other goodies like 18inch alloy's sunroof, leatherseats and so on and so on. My first impression: Its a rugged looking car. I'm not into the red color and if i decide to choose the Q2 it's deff. gonna be te Design version probably in grey like some of my other document pictures i added. i like that version. the Trunk is large enough specially with the adjustable flooring in the low position. raising and lowering it is a bit of a hassle... not audi worthy! inside the passenger compartment i have to get used to the small space and the front window being very close. but i have to add i've beendriving a Mercedes B for the last 4 years now and that is truly spacious as you can expect from an MPV. At the start of the production the 1.0TFSI 115Bhp will not be available. that engine will be introduced in the Q2 during feb/march 2017. so 1.4TFSI will be the entrylevel leven engine. Estimated pricing for that car will be € 29K and the TDI will start at €33K The Red document pictures show the exact external differences between the different versions and pack's. That's all for now. I really like the car and i believe in the handling and the Stronic gearbox. it looks Slick, it looks Sporty, it looks BuFF, the only thing for me what i want to check out another time is the innerspace. This Friday the presentation of the same car will be closer to my village and i will attend it with my family so i can stack my kids inside. Best Regards, Bram

    Audi UK will present nine brand new models to the public for the first time in the UK at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed (June 23-26), including debuts for the new Q2, Audi’s most compact Q model, and the high-performance R8 V10 Spyder. Also making their UK public debuts will be the all-new, second-generation Audi S5 Coupé, packing a 3-litre V6 turbocharged petrol engine with 349bhp, and, joining the Audi Sport family, the all-new five-cylinder TT RS Coupé. Another highlight of the Audi stand will be the new Q7 e-tron quattro, its largest, most efficient SUV capable of driving up to 34 miles on electric power alone. The second-generation A4 allroad, bridging the gap between the estate and SUV sectors, will be on show for the first time, alongside the 4-litre diesel SQ7 SUV. Paying homage to the R8 GT3 race car that took a total of 323 overall race wins, Audi will also present the brand new limited edition R8 V10 plus selection 24h. Only 24 of these 610PS monsters will be built, making Audi’s most powerful car also one of its most exclusive. As well as all-new vehicles, Audi’s heralded A3 range has been enhanced and will be showcased on its stand in saloon, e-tron and Sportback form. The Vorsprung durch Technik brand’s presence won’t only be felt in the exhibition area where the public can get up close to its newest models; it will also star on track, where a professional race driver will pilot the blistering Audi R8 V10 plus up the famous hill in the Michelin Supercar Run on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. For fans of heritage race cars, the 1991 Audi V8 DTM will thunder up the hill with Frank Biela at the wheel to celebrate 25 years since his DTM victory. Another milestone will be remembered when an Auto Union Type C ‘Silver Arrow’, driven by Pink Floyd legend Nick Mason, will also rumble up the hallowed Goodwood tarmac to mark 80 years since Auto Union’s European Championship victory in 1936. The popular and demanding off-road course will be attended by all but the latest member of Audi’s Q range, including the Audi Q3, Q5 and Q7. The public can also indulge in an even more immersive experience at the Home of quattro by trying out its virtual reality driving experience software and robotic chair alongside Audi Sport racing driver, Oliver Jarvis. To witness the multiple UK debuts of brand new Audi vehicles as well as a host of heritage race cars and immersive experiences (all subject to change), the public can purchase Goodwood Festival of Speed tickets and information via www.goodwood.com/tickets.

    There is an article about the Q2 in the April Audi Driver mag... I uploaded only an extract.... Audi.Driver-Q2-April.2016 18.42.57.pdf

    A good first review, well actually a first drive report for the Audi Q2 from autoexpress, I've added a few snippes, follow the link to read the full review. looks like the price will start around the £22k mark. given that the new Audi Q2 was developed in Ingolstadt and will soon be rolling off a production line very nearby, you’d imagine that’s where we’d be headed on this occasion. Er, nope. We’ve had to jet halfway across the world to Havana. Yep, the one in Cuba. But here were are, and the car in question has been in the pipeline ever since Audi’s Cross Lane Coupe was shown at Paris four years ago. The “99% finished” article has five, rather than three, doors, is a fraction under 4.2 metres long and sits on the now well-utilised MQB platform. That means the Q2 shares most of its underpinnings with the slightly longer, but lower and narrower, A3 hatch. What's it like? Thorough test drive this is not. Our route around sprawling Havana was in strict convoy led by a police escort and we rarely nudged above 40mph. Mind you, we often find ourselves grumbling about how smooth the roads are on foreign launches – and that certainly isn’t the case here. Few British roads are in such a sorry state as Cuba’s, so it would actually be unfair to draw too many conclusions about how well or otherwise the Q2 might ride on home soil. Nevertheless, it’s certainly firmer than the A3 with which it shares a platform. The standard passive dampers allow surprisingly little wheel travel by SUV standards, so there’s head toss aplenty along lumpy roads. The optional adaptive setup brings some welcome longer wave compliance when called upon (by choosing Comfort mode), although actually struggles more to keep wheel and road in contact over the really rough, broken-up stuff. Should I buy one? A pint-sized SUV with an Audi badge on it is as close to a guaranteed sales success as there is in 2016. And if you’re sold on the idea of a (slightly) jacked-up driving position, a swanky cabin and mildly butch styling, there’s every reason you might want to wait for the Q2 to arrive. A more thorough assessment of the Q2’s dynamic prowess will have to wait until we drive a production version on European roads. But aside from our reservations about ride comfort, Audi’s smallest SUV yet looks to be classy, practical and surprisingly good value – at least compared with the closest premium-badge-wearing competition. Audi Q2 1.4 TFSI 150 S Line S tronic (pre-production) Location: Havana, Cuba; On sale: November; Price from £26,000 (est.); Engine 4 cyls, 1395cc, turbocharged petrol; Power 148bhp at tbc; Torque tbc; Gearbox 7-spd semi-auto; Kerb weight tbc; Top speed tbc; 0 62mph tbc; Economy tbc; CO2 rating & BIK tax band tbc http://www.autocar.co.uk/car-review/audi/q2/first-drives/2016-audi-q2-14-tfsi-150-s-tronic-review

    Glad to hear from you Start...welcome. I am keen on the Q2 having recently eliminated the new Infiniti Q30 from my next-purchase choices. So far the Geneva launch has impressed me so I can't wait to see it in the metal. However July ordering / November delivery seems a long way off. Doh!

    Autoexpress have released some teaser images of the new Q2 (Attached) the car will be the first product from Audi design boss Marc Lichte, who came from VW in late 2013 to replace Wolfgang Egger. Lichte announced his arrival with the stunning prologue concept in 2014. He’s been relishing the chance to deliver a radical production car after criticism of the conservative Q7 and A4. As I understand it the new Q2 will be available with a choice of coloured graphics so that you can further personalise your car a la DS3. http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/audi/q2/84757/new-audi-q2-heads-brands-suv-boom

    Hi, Q2 looks amazing so I want to keep up-to-date with all the news of this new SUV. Hopefully it will be launched at either the Detroit Motor show on 11th January or at the March Geneva show. I plan to replace my 4 .5 year old Mazda 3 Takuya in the next 6 months so Q2 is at the top of my list.

    The Q2 is launching with a selection of six different engines. Along with a 1.0-liter three-cylinder TFSI, two four-cylinder gasoline engines are being offered with 1.4 and 2.0 liters of displacement. In addition, three four-cylinder diesel engines are available with 1.6 and 2.0 liters of displacement. Their power output ranges from 85 kW (116 hp) to 140 kW (190 hp). As an alternative to the six-speed manual transmission, Audi also offers the S tronic dual clutch transmission with seven speeds for all engines. In the case of the top TDI and the 2.0 TFSI, a newly developed dual-clutch transmission is used, which has a new type of oil supply and reduced friction. Both engines may also be combined with a quattro permanent all-wheel drive system as standard equipment. Installed at the rear 
on the front-wheel drive versions is a semi-independent suspension, while the quattro models have a four-link suspension. Progressive steering is standard in all versions. It varies the steering gear ratio as a function of the steering input; the ratio is made more direct with large steering movements. Adaptive dampers are available as an option, as is the Audi drive select system with which drivers can set an individual characteristic for their Q2.

    Embedded SIM unlocks even more of the advantages of Audi connect infotainment services Many new Audi models fitted with a permanently installed SIM card, including the new A3, A4, Q2 and Q7 range Data flat rate included for Audi connect services No more roaming fees when travelling around Europe Complimentary 3-month trial is equipped Ingolstadt, June 1, 2016 – Audi is now equipping its new models that use the second-generation modular infotainment platform with the Audi connect SIM. The factory-installed SIM card offers customers the advantage of being able to immediately use the wide range of Audi connect services with the accompanying data flat rate both domestically and abroad. The Audi connect SIM is a permanently installed SIM card, known as an embedded SIM or eSIM, which customers in Europe will receive in combination with the optional Audi connect equipment package. This transforms the car into a mobile communication centre. The SIM card brings Audi connect services on board via an LTE/UMTS module with a download speed of up to 100 MBit/s. Services include navigation with Google Earth and Google Street View, travel, traffic and parking information. In addition, drivers can access their Twitter and e-mail accounts and their smartphone’s calendar. The new SIM card contains an unlimited data volume for using these services. Another advantage is that in most European countries, the Audi connect SIM automatically accesses the provider for each specific country, as needed. This eliminates high, country-specific roaming charges and inconvenient roaming confirmations for the customer. Later this year, customers will be able to purchase additional data packages for the Wi-Fi hotspot, independent of the integrated Audi connect services. It allows all passengers to surf the internet at attractive rates with up to eight mobile devices. If a customer selects a European data package, the data transfer also automatically works accordingly when crossing an international border – and thus when changing internet provider – at fixed prices. Customers will be able to reach the online shop of our partner Cubic Telecom through their myAudi account. After a one-time registration, they will be able to obtain the data package for the Wi-Fi hotspot from this shop. Once the required access is granted in the online shop, data packages can be quickly and conveniently purchased directly through the MMI system in the car. Customers may also continue to use their own SIM card in the car and establish Wi-Fi internet access through their own cellular provider. In this case, the data volume used by Audi connect services will also be charged to the customer’s SIM card and the Audi connect SIM temporarily deactivated. With Audi connect, use is included for three months or, for an additional fee, for three years. After this, customers can ask their Audi service partner to extend access for a fee. The Audi connect embedded SIM is used in all new models that include the second generation of the modular infotainment platform. These are currently the Audi A3, the A4, the Audi Q2 and the Q7. Other model series will follow. The Audi TT, the R8, the A6 and the A7 are currently excluded from this new offer. The offer is the first result of a collaboration between Audi and the Irish company Cubic Telecom, a leading supplier of seamless worldwide connectivity solutions.

    Collected my new (fab) Mazda3 today and drove 'carefully' from Arnold Clark Mazda , Liverpool along the M62 /M60 to my home in Urmston, Manchester using Sat-Nav for the first time!. Very clever is this Sat-Nav, got me to within 100 yds of my front door without a hitch. (I'd been advised never to leave own post-code in a Sat Nav). Having read the recent post regarding possible extended delays for the Audi Q2 due to expected high demand, I'm glad to have made the decision to upgrade to this pre-reg Mazda 3 at a saving of £4,690. I think in 12 months time there will be a the opportunity to switch to the Q2 at a 'good' price if the car proves to be as desirable and reliable as forecast and positively commented upon by members of this forum. You are all my guinea-pigs. I will route out my camera and post a couple of pics in due course.

    As far as we are aware, production of the Q2 has not yet started and neither are full details available, especially regarding price. But if you are a big enough fan of the quattro brand and are considering buying such a vehicle, there's one way to catch a quick glimpse before everybody else. A red Q2 has just arrived at Audi Forum Neckarsulm and will stay there until the 24th of May.

    Hello everybody, looking at the Q2 as an addition to the 'stable' I have owned an A3 and A1 as my previous two cars and my better half currently runs a 5 year old Q3 so the Q2 seems a logical step in my search for perfection (ahem) now it seems I too have caught the SUV bug, Red has always been my colour of choice and judging by the look of the piccy above this probable next purchase will more than likely be no different, the silver bit at the back finishes it off nicely too IMO. Look forward to hearing all your views as time passes ROG

    The Geneva Motor Show is just weeks away and the rumour mill is going into overdrive as to what will be appearing. One of the major attractions will be the debut of the Audi Q2, which will sit on the architecture of the Q3 but will be significantly shorter. Early indications are that Audi will be going all Mini with the new model, with a huge number of personalisation options and various models ranging from front-wheel drive to range topping quattro versions. It looks likely that the firm will release more official info ahead of the model’s Geneva debut so expect more news shortly.

    New Audi Q2 release The Audi Q2 SUV is to be released in 2016, and is expected to go head to head with the Nissan Juke The car-maker will look to increase its range of Q cars for 2016 with the launch of the Audi Q2, a new mini crossover SUV. These exclusive images show how the performance version, expected to be called the SQ2, will look. Audi have decided rather than using a cranked up A1 platform, the Q2 will be based around the a new small configuration of the VW Group’s base. And will also underpin the new VW Polo (due here in the UK towards the end of 2015) also the next-generation Audi A1 in 2016, these smaller cars will share a similar engine range. Audi claim they will fulfil their promise of offering a 60-model range by 2020, it needs a vast amount of new models, while the new Audi Q2 is to go on sale by the end of 2016, the exciting SQ2seems certain to be on the German car-maker’s radar as well. This means Audi’s new SQ2 could use the same engine as the current Audi S1, which sports a221bhp 2.0-litre petrol engine and the legendary quattro 4-wheel drive system. The current S1 is only available with the six-speed manual drivetrain. The Quattro 4x4 system seems to be a must for both the SQ2 and the Q2 although a huge majority of Q2 sales will be front-wheel drive. Giving customers the option is a must, for Audi to compete with similar cars. Audi’s new Q2 is expected to be unveiled at the next Detroit Motor Show, and will be released in early 2016.
