Audi Q2 gets four-wheel-drive petrol model

Audi combines its quattro system with petrol power on the Q2 SUV for the first time

Audi has expanded the range of its smallest crossover SUV, the Q2, with the addition of a 2.0-litre TFSI petrol model with four-wheel drive. The Audi Q2 is already on sale with both petrol engines and four-wheel drive, but the new model is the first time the two have been combined. Before, choosing Audi’s quattro four-wheel-drive system for your Q2 meant you had to have a diesel engine.

The new Audi Q2 2.0-litre TFSI quattro produces 187bhp, does 0-62mph in 6.5 seconds and manages an average of 44.8mpg. It’s a good blend of performance and economy that gives the car hot-hatchback-like performance – it’s the most powerful engine available in the Q2. You can only have the new engine and drive combination with Audi’s seven-speed S tronic automatic gearbox, in either sporty S line or top-spec Edition #1 trim.

S line cars get LED headlights and interior lighting, 18-inch alloy wheels and front sports seats, along with plenty of sporty design touches, including matte grey window pillars at the rear. The step up to Edition #1 trim brings 19-inch Audi Sport wheels, stylish Quantum Grey paint with a contrasting black styling pack that gives the car a suitably aggressive and sporty look. Inside, the extra style continues with grey and brown Nappa leather sports seats and matching floor mats, plus an LED interior lighting system.

Starting prices for the new petrol-powered four-wheel-drive Q2 models range from £31,760 to £36,750 – similar to an equivalent Mercedes GLA 250 4MATIC AMG Line (£34,550) or BMW X1 xDrive20i M Sport (£34,420).
