Audi expands its crossover line with this compact Q

Audi has finally put to bed the rumors of an addition to its Q lineup of SUVs. Introduced at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, the 2017 Audi Q2 expands the automaker’s reach into the entry-level category of luxury crossovers.

Looking more like a high-riding hot hatch, the Q2 is a lightweight five door that helps usher in Audi’s new design styling. The front grille wears a new polygon shape while the C-pillar sports a “color blade” that can be customized, much like the first-generation R8. Six available engines, two transmissions, a bevy of safety equipment and driver aids, and Audi’s new glass gauge cluster make the Q2 perhaps the most tech-savvy option in the current crop of crossovers.

The technology extends into the unseen, as well. The Q2 is built from form-hardened steels that increase strength without adding excessive weight. Its size is fairly diminutive at only 13.7 feet long with a wheelbase of 8.5 feet. Its width is also tidy at 5.9 feet. Not only should this make the Q2 an outstanding performer in crash testing, but with a curb weight of only 2,656 pounds, the crossover should be a blast to drive.

Those passing judgment based on horsepower numbers shouldn’t be fooled – Audi says its engine lineup has been “right-sized” to provide the best power to weight optimization. The top performer of the bunch is the 2.0-liter TFSI gasoline mill that cranks out 190 horsepower. For turbodiesel fans, the 2.0-liter TDI is offered in two power levels, with the horsepower peaking at 190, matching the TFSI. Audi has not announced torque figures.

The Q2 is blazing new trails for Audi in the compact crossover segment, but with its light weight, tech-filled cabin, wide range of powertrains, and striking looks, it’s easy to foresee Audi’s domination over the competition.

Update 03/01/2016: Audi has officially debuted the 2017 Q2 crossover at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.
