Before we give our full verdict on this particular Q2, let us first mention that you’ll need pretty deep pockets to buy one. The range might start at less than £22,000, but you’ll need more than £32,000 if you want this much power under the bonnet. Then there’s this model's CO2 emissions: you’re looking at 144g/km, an awful lot for such a small SUV albeit around the same as the equivalent Mini Countryman Cooper S All4 Auto.
Ultimately, a lesser Q2 makes far more financial sense. Not only are some of the cheaper areas of the interior more forgivable when you’re spending a few thousand less, our favourite 1.4 TFSI engine is plenty punchy enough and will be far cheaper to run.
