Audi Q2 details
The Audi Q2 is the fifth new model launched by the German marque in India this year.
Although it’s based on VW Group’s MQB platform, the Q2 has no direct rivals in India, owing to the fact that it is considerably smaller than similar offerings in its price range, such as the Mercedes-Benz GLA, the second generation of which isn’t on sale in India yet, Volvo XC40, and BMW X1.
Measuring 4,191mm in length, 1,794mm in width, 1,508mm in height, and with a wheelbase of 2,601mm, the Q2 is the smallest offering in the Q range. Although the facelifted Q2 has been revealed abroad recently, it is pertinent to note that the car coming to India is, in fact, the pre-facelift model, which has been on sale internationally since 2016.
