The new Audi Q2: A closer look

The Audi Q2 is immediately striking: it melds a low-riding sporty coupé-style look with the familiar design of a compact SUV.

Inside, a large luggage compartment, with an auto boot lid as an option, provides up to 1,050 litres of space. The driver's seat offers a panoramic view of the road ahead, and the cabin can be customised with a variety of colourful trims.

The Q2 is equipped with the latest connectivity and infotainment technologies. Using the Audi smartphone interface, the driver can connect a suitable iOS or Android device to the dashboard USB port, allowing immediate access to the phone's navigation features, contacts, music and selected third-party apps. The optional Audi phone box lets the driver charge their phone wirelessly and connect it to the car's antenna for optimal reception.

Commenting, Henning Dohrn, Managing Director of Audi Ireland, said: “An all-new Audi for Irish customers, the Audi Q2 is an exciting combination of coupé sportiness and compact SUV functionality. The compact SUV segment is growing in Ireland and we are confident the Audi Q2 will attract new customers to the Audi brand. It demonstrates the brand’s passion for exploring new ways of designing and building premium cars for every driver.”
