Interior and Exterior Design of the Q2

When you look at Audi’s exterior the very first thing you will notice is that it does not look vastly different from the conventional SUV. While it is significantly smaller than most SUV cars on the market everything from the design to the shape gives off the impression that the Audi Q2 is a traditional SUV.

However, do not let this initial impression fool you. The new Q2 has been built as a crossover vehicle between a family car for families looking for a practical and large enough vehicle to travel with, and a SUV.

The exterior comes with a low roof that appears to merge towards the rear of the vehicle giving the Audi SUV a very sporty appearance. The car is quite compact, measuring at 1.51 metres in height and 1.79 metres in weight. This gives the car a total length of around 4.19 metres. This is a great size for a family vehicle, but pretty small for a SUV.

One exterior feature that stands out, and is expected with all modern Audi vehicles, is the signature Audi black grille. This together with its blacked out C-pillars and sporty front bumper makes the vehicle appear very masculine and athletic.

If the vehicle was a human, the Q2 would be a top Olympic gymnast; fairly small in size but possessing very lean muscle and power. It is no wonder that the Q2 Audi is such an attractive car, Audi has always excelled in building lean, powerful and beautifully cars.

The interior of these SUV cars are very impressive. Once you step into the wide opening doors that you would typically find in most SUVs you are greeted by a very spacious interior that clearly has enough room to cater comfortably for four passengers and a driver.

Although the seats are generally very comfortable you might not be too impressed with the feeling of being crammed you will get because of the vehicle’s size. If you are claustrophobic you will definitely feel slightly uncomfortable in this vehicle. However, aside from this minor issue the cabin is generally very well built.

The Audi Q2 comes with standard interior features such as a multifunctional steering wheel that is covered in a leather exterior, fully adjustable front seats with a black script cloth finish and standard floor mats. However, with the Q2 you have the option of building your own interior, which will cost you more.

For an extra fee you can request to get a milano leather or artificial leather combination finish for your seats. You can also choose to replace your standard interior mirror with a mirror that comes with an automatic anti-glare action and light and rain sensors.

You can choose to add an aluminium look to your Audi’s interior and you can opt for black cloth headlining for your interior roof. As stated these extra options will come with an extra payment.

Audi Q2 Tech Features

The new Q2 comes built with an anti – theft alarm with a tow away protection function helping to make your vehicle more secure against theft.

This feature allows you to view the most important driving relevant information on a glass panel that is located right in the sight of the driver’s vision. You can expect to view information such as navigation data, the speed the vehicle is moving in and any warning messages that may arise while driving the vehicle.
