New Ford Puma vs used Audi Q2: practicality
These two small SUVs are class leaders with similar price tags, but is it a new Ford Puma or used Audi Q2 that best justifies the money?...
Space and practicality
Front space, rear space, seating flexibility, boot
Those of the taller variety will have no issue with front space in either car, or with rear space in the Audi Q2. However, anyone over six-feet tall is likely to struggle somewhat in the back of the Ford Puma, especially if the optional panoramic glass roof is fitted, because this eats into head room. Fitting three abreast is also more difficult, because of its narrower interior.
Both cars have 60/40 folding rear seats. But while the Q2's practicality is further enhanced by a height-adjustable boot floor, the Puma offers far more space for luggage, thanks to a huge well beneath its floor. It's so deep that you can transport a tall pot plant of a couple of sets of golf clubs upright. There's even a plug in the bottom so you can wash out any mud.
