The 2016 Audi Q2 is the result of Audi’s efforts to make a solid off-road vehicle, and this one is going to make use of the same platform as the A1. This in turn means the regulations on exhaust gases will be upheld, making this vehicle an ideal choice for the great outdoors, as well as the bustling city streets. Now let us see what lies in wait for those who aim to acquire one of these…
AUDI Q2 RELEASE DATE
The official release date for the 2016 Audi Q2 was originally set for late 2015, but has since been moved and it should make an appearance by next Spring. However, if you were looking for an exact date and hour, we can only direct you to Audi’s official page…
2016 Audi Q2 PRICE
As far as price goes, Audi has a lot of ground to cover as well as lots of stiff competition to surpass, so the base version should go for roughly $37,000. This is already an increase compared to previous models, but it had to be done. Of course, additional equipment and higher trims will bring this number up by a considerable margin.
On the outside, the 2016 Audi Q2 is expected to showcase some superior quality, especially in comparison to the last year’s model. Since it was based on the A1 model, it will feature lighter materials, mostly aluminum and carbon fiber, meaning we can expect a serious weight reduction this year. This is good news for both handling and fuel efficiency, although it is still unknown whether it will affect the price and in what extent. Most likely, the price will be increased, as stated previously. Otherwise, the design has seen few changes, except for the grille with brand new LED lights and the rear bumper.
The increase in quality and standards will be noticeable from the inside of the 2016 Audi Q2 as well. First and foremost, high quality materials will make for a more pleasant driving experience, as will the improved handling and the sheer amount of indoor space at your disposal, especially for your legs. The new equipment and technologies will enable a safer, more pleasant driving experience than ever before. The new infotainment system will keep the passengers occupied and the new navigation is also a nice touch, albeit an optional one. Oh, and color selection has also been expanded.
2016 Audi Q2 Specs
Under the hood of the new 2016 Audi Q2, there will be one of several engines. The stock version if the 1.2 L TSI, although the 1.4 L TSI is not much of an improvement, either. Up the ladder, there is a 2.0 L TSI and finally, there should be a 2.5 L, 5-cylinder option, unless Audi developers decide to scrap the plans as it would involve serious alterations to the front. In any case, they should be able to dish out anything up to 255 horsepower, and they will most likely be matted to either a 5 or 6-speed automatic transmission.
