Although there's nothing new about pint-sized SUVs, the Audi Q2 was one of the first to combine compact dimensions with a premium badge on its snout. But while it’s about the same size as a Seat Arona and Renault Captur, it costs as much as the larger Skoda Karoq and Seat Ateca.
Under the bonnet, you’ll find a selection of petrol and diesel engines delivering between 113bhp and 187bhp. Unlike some rivals, you can have four-wheel drive, albeit only on the most potent petrol and diesel variants.
Over the next few pages, we’ll look at all aspects of the Q2 to see if it’s better than premium rivals such as the Mini Countryman. If you’re already smitten, have a look at our new car deals here. You could save a packet at a dealer near you.
