Introduction

What Car? says...

While there's nothing new about pint-sized SUVs, the Audi Q2 is the first one that combines genuinely compact dimensions with a properly posh badge. It’s the smallest member of a range of SUVs from the German brand that also includes the Q3, Q3 Sportback, Q5, Q7 and Q8

Despite its modest stature, the Audi Q2 has some surprisingly powerful engines and an interior worthy of that famous four-ringed badge. But there is a catch: while the Q2 is roughly the same size as a Ford Puma or Volkswagen T-Roc, it costs a fair bit more to buy. Indeed, it's priced roughly in line with altogether larger alternatives, including the Peugeot 3008 and Seat Ateca.

Unlike some rivals, the Audi Q2 is available with four-wheel drive, albeit only on the most potent petrol and diesel engines. And the most potent of them all is a 296bhp 2.0-litre turbo that's fitted to the range-topping SQ2. That version is a thoroughbred sports SUV and a very different animal, though, so we've reviewed it separately here.

In this review, we'll be telling you how the regular Q2 stacks up against its closest rivals, which include the T-Roc but also the Mini Countryman and others.

But if you’re already smitten, check out the Audi Q2 deals we can offer through our New Car Buying service to save on the brochure price without any haggling at all.
