The all-new 2019 Audi Q2 will hit the markets once again. The latest Audi’s SUV is also the smallest one and it is classified as a crossover since its debut two years ago. Moreover, Q2 is a five-door model, it offers a higher ride, unique design and two very efficient drivetrains. The interior is extremely comfortable and modern, safety is also more than good and the cabin space is surprisingly generous.7
The 2019 Audi Q2 is what company like to call “coupe-crossover”. The dimensions are small and this crossover will ride on Volkswagen’s MQB platform. The exterior will suffer a couple of changes, but nothing significant. The same stands for the interior that will get slight refinements. The performance is great in overall, but if you want more speed and sportiness, opt for the Audi SQ2.
2019 Audi Q2 exterior changes
The 2019 Audi Q2 won’t suffer too many upgrades, so the latest changes are minor. A combination of lightweight materials with hard steel is doing a great job so far. With that in mind, this crossover is not only light but also only 13.7-inches long. Up front, the grille will get a slight redesign as the shape is squared. Moreover, further satin trims are extending toward the lower fascia. Whole lighting system runs on a LED technology as a standard.
To the sides, Q2 rides on a 19-inch silver metallic wheels and the same 20-inch rollers will be optional. C-pillars are available in different colors. Rear doors are slightly wider and the rear windows are smaller. The rear end sports some satin chrome accents, and the taillights will get the same upgrade as the headlights. The 2019 Q2 will come in 12 different exterior paints.
2019 Audi Q2 interior offers a 12.3-inch screen
The interior of the 2019 Audi Q2 comes with minor changes only, just like the exterior. However, the cabin already looks premium and upscale. Furthermore, we’d like to call this interior minimalistic for numerous reasons. Dashboard sports four rounded vents and the information display. Satin chrome trim is separating the dash and down below HVAC controls are practical. A new 12.3-inch screen is taken from the TT models and we like the design of the speedometer. New interior color schemes are in the offer and all of them are looking gorgeous.
LED illumination is optional, just like the Bang & Olufsen premium audio system with 14 speakers. Just as any other new model from Audi, the Q2 will also feature plenty of soft-touch surfaces and upscale materials. Even the buttons are quality.
The layout of the buttons is just perfect and using them is very pleasing. During the night drive, ambient lighting is providing a superb experience. Seats are extremely supportive and the comfort is also great. Lumbar support for the front seats remains optional. The seating position of the 2019 Audi Q2 is great as well and the visibility is perfect.
2019 Audi Q2 powertrain
The upcoming 2019 Audi Q2 offers numerous drivetrain choices, a great combination of gasoline and diesel engines. For an instance, a 1.0-liter three-cylinder TSFI unit that runs on gasoline is standard. The smallest engine choice provides the best fuel economy figures, but it can generate only 116 hp. A 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine delivers up to 196 horses and is a much better and more recommendable option.
Diesel drivetrains are available in two different power levels. The first diesel variant is a 2.0-liter TDI and it can produce 150 hp. The second variant will use the same engine but it can deliver 190 horsepower. Gasoline engines are available with the front-wheel-drive and 7-speed automatic transmission. On the other hand, diesel powertrains are coming with the Quattro all-wheel-drive setup.
2019 Audi SQ2 model
The 2019 Audi SQ2 is a sportier and much more aggressive version of the regular Q2 model. It comes with a stronger engine, better aerodynamics, and much meaner stance. This model was spotted doing test drives and the spy shots are showing this model without camouflage at all. According to those spy shots, the front fascia will offer larger features such as the grille and air intakes. Contrasting trims are visible and the side profile won’t suffer many changes.
The rear fascia sports different inserts and more aggressive diffuser. SQ2 badges are all over the body. The interior won’t depart that much from the base model. The leather seats are standard and there is plenty of red trims. The red color is present everywhere from seats to the door panels. Performance-wise, the 2019 SQ2 will use a 2.0-liter engine. This unit can produce up to 310 horses and 295 lb-ft of torque. With those figures, the SQ2 model can reach from 0 to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds. Quattro all-wheel-drive is standard, just like the S Tronic transmission.
2019 Audi Q2 price and release date
The price of the all-new 2019 Audi Q2 starts at $25,000. The SQ2 variant will cost over $30,000 for sure and other upper trims will cost significantly more than the base model.
