Audi has expanded the Q2’s range globally by adding a flagship petrol trim. This new variant is not only the most powerful in the range but also the first petrol-powered variant to be offered with Audi’s quattro all-wheel-drive technology.
Offered as an alternative to the 150bhp 2.0 TDI quattro model which was introduced late last year, the new Q2 2.0 TFSI quattro is available in S line and Edition #1 specification. The latter produces the highest power output currently available in a Q2, allowing it to accelerate to 100kmph from rest in 6.5 seconds – the fastest sprint time in the range. Its seven-speed S tronic gearbox incorporates a freewheeling mode when the standard Audi drive select handling system is set to “efficiency” mode.
The Q2 2.0 TFSI features LED headlights, an LED interior lighting pack, S line interior and exterior styling cues, 18-inch alloy wheels, C-pillar blades in matt titanium grey and front sports seats mark out the S line.
The on-road prices for the Q2 2.0 TFSI range between £31,760 (Rs 26.31 lakh) to £36,750 (Rs 30.05 lakh). The car is now on sale across Europe. Audi India, meanwhile, is expected to launch the Q2 sometime next year.
