2017 Audi Q2 compact crossover breaks from the mold

2017 Audi Q2

Audi continues to expand its crossover lineup and now it's adding a new smaller crossover - the Q2. Besides its small footprint, you'll also notice that the Q2's exterior looks a bit different than the rest of Audi's crossovers, which Audi hopes will give it a more independent character.

"In the Audi Q2 we have developed a distinctively geometric form language with model-specific design characteristics," says Audi Head of Design Marc Lichte.

The Q2's exterior is bolder and from the front, the Audi Singleframe grille features an octagonal design and from the side the low roof descends and merges into the C-pillars with color offset blades. From the rear the sportiness continues with a long roof spoiler and a diffuser.

Under the hood, the Q2 will be available with a range of diesel and gasoline engines ranging from the 1.0L three-cylinder up to 2.0L TFSI and TDI engines. The Q2 is slated to go on sale in Europe this fall, but no U.S. sales plans have been announced.
