Practicality & boot space Rating

4.0 out of 5

The Audi Q2 is based on the A3 hatchback and access is easy thanks to doors that open nice and wide, while the high roofline and upright seating position mean it’s possible for four adults to travel in more comfort than in a Nissan Juke or Renault Captur. The driving position is excellent, with a steering wheel that moves in and out as well as up and down, and the driver’s seat offers excellent adjustment for taller and shorter drivers.

Audi Q2 interior space & storage

While it’s quite a small car, the Q2 still allows space for four six-foot tall adults in relative comfort. Those in the back may find their knees brushing the front seats, but long journeys are by no means an unpleasant prospect and Audi has done an excellent job of packaging the Q2. The middle rear seat is tight and best reserved for occasional use, but this is something that can be said of the Peugeot 2008, Nissan Juke and some cars from the class above, too.

Boot space

At 405 litres, the Q2’s boot is bigger than some of its rivals, but 50 litres smaller than the Renault Captur’s. It’s a good, square shape and is more spacious than most hatchbacks’ (the Volkswagen Golf has a 380-litre boot, for example), while the boot floor can be raised slightly to create a flat load bay for when the rear seats are dropped.

Towing

The 1.5-litre petrol engine can tow up to 1,500kg, but if this is a priority then the larger diesels are worth a look, as the 2.0-litre TDI can handle 1,800kg.
