Introducing the new Audi Q2 and SQ7

Making their debut at the Geneva International Motor Show 2016, we are introducing the new Audi Q2 and SQ7 to our SUV range.

The smallest model out of the Q range, the new Audi Q2 still remains spacious, practical and elevates you with the driving position you'd expect from an SUV. With striking muscular lines the Q2 is certainly a head-turner, with an elegant, coupe-like shape, a bold design and plenty of ways to customise its details including brand new colours and contrast bumpers. As you'd expect from an Audi, it also offers the latest innovation and technology for the ultimate driving experience. Especially striking are the wedge-shaped headlights, the high position of the Singleframe grille and the generously sized air inlets.

In the connectivity and infotainment area, the Q2 offers technologies from the full-size class. The driver can use the optional touchpad to scroll through a clearly structured menu, while passengers can surf and stream with smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices via a Wi-Fi hotspot . The speedometer and tachometer glow in the optional fully-digital Audi virtual cockpit, whose 12.3-inch screen displays highly detailed and brilliant graphics. Stay tuned for more information regarding release dates, model variants and pricing.

Highlights include:

  • Compact sporty design with an octagonal single-frame grille and unique contrast C-pillar blade
  • Choice of powerful and efficient three- and four-cylinder engines from 116PS to 190PS
  • Six-speed manual and seven-speed S tronic transmissions with quattro all-wheel drive available
  • 17-inch alloy wheels as standard and up to 19-inch alloys optional
  • Highly customisable with new exterior paint colours, different C-pillar blade colours and a choice of upholstery and inlay colours
  • A new eye-catching illuminated inlay with different day and night designs
  • Innovative Audi technology such as Audi Virtual Cockpit, head-up display and park assist available as options
  • Class-leading driver assistance systems such as optional adaptive cruise control with Stop&Go and cross traffic assist rear 

The new Audi SQ7 TDI strikes an impressive balance between powerful and intensified stylistic elements. At 5.07 meters (16.6 ft), it is approximately as long as the base model. The Audi DNA, such as the sculpted Singleframe radiator grille, distinctively highlighted wheels and flared quattro-style blisters, is unmistakable. All lines and surfaces are designed precisely and incisively, and accentuate the width of the car and thus the solidness of the overall concept. The SQ7 TDI has a new radiator grille with an S-specific design at the bumpers. Other distinguishing features are the side air inlets, the mirror housings and door inlays in standard aluminum. The exhaust system terminates in four rectangular tailpipes .

The 4.0 TDI in the Audi SQ7 TDI works with strong partners. The proof is in the road behavior, from extremely comfortable cruising on the motorway to dynamic handling on mountain passes. The redesigned eight-speed tiptronic is impressively efficient. It changes gears extremely quickly and efficiently, and at high speeds allows coasting at idle. A self-locking center differential is the heart of the quattro permanent all-wheel drive system. It is compact, lightweight and interacts very precisely with the suspension control system. Stay tuned for more information regarding release dates and pricing.
