New Ford Puma vs used Audi Q2: verdict

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?...

New Ford Puma vs used Audi Q2

Our verdict

If your heart remains torn, don't fret, because both of these two are five-star cars, meaning you can't really go wrong.

On the one hand, a used Audi Q2 pampers you from the minute you step into its plush interior and begin using its intuitive infotainment system. It's noticeably the more premium product, despite being the cheaper to buy. 

But get the pair out on the road and it's the new Puma that shines the brightest. It's better to drive, not to mention quicker and more economical. What's more, its larger boot makes it an easier car to live with.

So, it's a close call, but for our money, it's the new Puma that (just) makes the most sense.
