Specifications of Audi Q2 35 TFSI (150 HP) S tronic
General characteristics of Audi Q2 35 TFSI (150 HP) S tronic
The Audi Q2 is a robust all-rounder for everyday use and leisure whose character is reflected in its body line: They are sporty, elongated, and powerful at the same time, and the corners and edges give the compact SUV a confident appearance. As a result of its revision, the Q2 has become a little longer, now measuring 13.8 ft, while the width 5.9 ft and height 5.1 ft have remained the same. The drag coefficient of 0.31 (with sport suspension) is a top-of-the-range value in the segment.
The designers have now applied the motif of the polygon, which already characterized the front and shoulder line, to the rear end as well. The bumper has an integrated diffuser insert with large five-sided polygons. The front has also been modified, with the surfaces below the headlights emerging in a more striking manner. The octagonal Singleframe is slightly lower, making the front section appear wider. Its insert also interprets the polygon motif. The advanced and S line equipment lines feature narrow slits between the radiator grille and the hood that are reminiscent of the Audi Sport quattro, an icon of the brand. The large implied air inlets also appear even more expressive, especially in the S line.
The spacious interior of the Audi Q2 accommodates five passengers. The interior design echoes the taut design language of their exterior. The air vents and the gear lever knob, or selector lever of the S tronic, have a new look. Q2 customers can order the interior S line instead of the basic variant, and both interior versions can be combined freely with the three exterior variants. With the optional ambient lighting package plus, the trim strip on the instrument panel and the knee pads on the center console feature elegant backlighting.
The Dinamica microfiber material is a new addition to the range and will replace the Alcantara material. Audi has bundled all upholstery and colors into eight packages, four of which are assigned to the basic interior, while the other four are assigned to the interior S line. The optional equipment is also bundled into packages, as this provides a better overview of the extensive range during configuration. Whether it is climate control, comfort, function, interior, infotainment, or assist systems: All packages have been compiled such that they accommodate the customers' wishes. Audi will roll out this strategy in all model series in the future and adjust them to the respective preferences in the important global markets.
The optional equipment of the Q2 includes sport seats with pronounced side bolsters, a height-adjustable front passenger seat, two-zone automatic air conditioning, and auxiliary heating. The luggage compartment of the compact SUV can handle an unchanged 14.3 cu ft, expanding to 37.1 cu ft when the rear seat backs are folded down. A power tailgate and a trailer hitch are available as options.
The Audi Q2 is being launched on market with a powerful gasoline engine: The 1.5 TFSI outputs 110 kW (150 PS) and produces 184.4 lb-ft of torque. In the NEDC cycle, the refined four-cylinder engine consumes just 43.6-46.1 US mpg, corresponding to CO2 emissions of 124-116 grams of CO2 per kilometer (199.6-186.7 g/mi). At low loads and engine speeds, its efficiency system, cylinder on demand (COD), temporarily deactivates the second and third cylinders.
Further TDI and TFSI engines added before the end of 2020. All engines comply with the new Euro 6 AP emission standard, and the twin dosing technology of the diesel engines minimizes the NOx emissions. Two SCR catalytic converters work together here: One is located directly behind the engine and the other is installed in the vehicle floor. They cover different operating situations and complement each other's effects.
The Q2 with the 1.5 TFSI engine rolls off the assembly line with a manual six-speed transmission as standard, with the seven-speed S tronic available as an option. quattro all-wheel drive is available for some engine versions. Its multi-plate clutch, which transfers part or all of the engine torque to the rear wheels as needed, belongs to a new generation. It is around 2.2 lb lighter than its predecessor engine while offering increased efficiency thanks to various details such as bearings and oil supply.
