Used Audi Q2 For Sale
The Audi Q2 is an entry-level SUV that has been designed to offer buyers a premium car in a more affordable everyday package.
SUVs are big business in the UK, and that's because of things like the raised driving position and enhanced practicality. The problem with larger SUVs from premium brands is that they can price a number of motorists out of the market, which is why the Q2 was created.
More than just an affordable SUV with an upmarket badge, the Q2 makes a good used car purchase for the following reasons:
- Handsome appearance
- Classy interior design
- Punchy selection of engines
- Affordable to run
Engines and Driving Experience
Despite being an SUV, the Q2 shares a lot of similarities with the Audi A1 in the way it drives. For example, there isn't much body lean in corners, and the suspension doesn't wallow around, which is a trait of larger SUVs.
- 30 TFSI: 1.0-litre producing 108bhp (0 to 62mph in 10.1 seconds and up to 55.4mpg)
- 35 TFSI: 1.5-litre producing 148bhp (0 to 62mph in 8.2 seconds and up to 52.3mpg)
- 40 TFSI: 2.0-litre producing 187bhp (0 to 62mph in 6.5 seconds and up to 42.8mpg)
- 30 TDI: 1.6-litre producing 114bhp (0 to 62mph in 10.3 seconds and up to 64.2mpg)
- 35 TDI: 2.0-litre producing 148bhp (0 to 62mph in 8.1 seconds and up to 55.4mpg)
Audi's Quattro all-wheel drive system is available on diesel models, which we'd recommend if you spend a lot of time driving on country lanes.
Practicality and Running Costs
A high roofline and wide opening doors make the Q2 a great car for everyday family duties. The middle rear seat can be a bit of a tight squeeze for grown adults, but it's more than ample for occasional use. In addition, the two outer seats in the back have ISOFIX anchor points for a child's seat.
With 405 litres on offer, the Q2's boot is more than spacious enough for active families, or those who own a dog. The large opening makes life easier, while the floor itself can be raised to create a flat loading bay, which is always welcome.
The Q2 occupies insurance groups between 13 and 30 (out of 50), with the exception being the performance SQ2, which sits in group 33 and above. Affordable servicing and maintenance is available through all Evans Halshaw retailers.
Interior, Technology and Safety
Audi always get high praise for their car interiors because they manage to blend premium materials with elegant design. The centre console is largely clutter free, while a high-resolution screen rests at the top for convenient viewing when driving.
Entry-level Technik models are well-equipped, coming with LED headlights, cruise control and an 8.3-inch infotainment screen. Sport models add 17-inch alloy wheels alongside Audi's slick satellite navigation system and sports seats.
S line cars are worth seeking out if you want sporty exterior and interior enhancements, as well as stiffened suspension and part-leather upholstery. Sitting at the top of the range is the Vorsprung, which gets adaptive suspension, a rear view camera and adaptive cruise control.
Safety features and driver aids available include:
- Pre Sense collision avoidance system
- Autonomous emergency braking
- Lane departure warning
- Traffic sign recognition
Is the Audi Q2 right for me?
The Audi Q2 is an appealing car because of its handsome looks, efficient engines and spacious cabin. As a result, you really won't go wrong with one if you want a small SUV from a premium brand like Audi.
This area of the market is pretty saturated though, and there are alternatives that offer similar appeal. The BMW X1 will suit you if you want a more engaging driving experience, while the Mercedes-Benz GLA offers a futuristic interior design that is arguably more vibrant.
