Audi has added a petrol all-wheel drive model to its Q2 compact SUV range.
Offered as an alternative to the 150PS 2.0 TDI quattro model which was introduced late last year, the Q2 2.0 TFSI quattro 190PS S tronic is available in S line and Edition #1 specification.
The quattro system’s electrohydraulically actuated multi-plate clutch distributes torque continuously between the axles.
Its seven-speed S tronic incorporates a freewheeling mode when the standard Audi drive select handling system is set to 'efficiency' mode, and with the start-stop function, the engine already shuts off when speed drops to 4.3mph.
Both contribute to up to 44.8mpg combined and 144g/km when chosen in S line specification, and 44.1mpg combined in conjunction with 146g/km for the Edition #1, even on its standard 19-inch alloy wheels.
The S line model features LED headlights, an LED interior lighting pack, S line interior and exterior styling cues, 18-inch alloy wheels, C-pillar blades in matt Titanium grey and front sports seats mark out the S line.
This adds to the Audi Smartphone Interface, SD card-based MMI Navigation and Audi connect infotainment service package, light and rain sensors and Audi drive select already fitted as standard to all Sport models and above.
The Edition #1 has 19-inch Audi Sport alloy wheels and Quantum grey paint, a black styling pack and Manhattan grey contrast bumpers, wheel arch trims, side skirts and bumper inserts.
The interior is furnished with sports seats in Granite grey Fine Nappa leather with Amaretto brown contrast stripes and stitching, a multi-coloured LED interior lighting pack advanced that spreads across the inlays in a special Format design and floor mats also sporting brown contrast stitching.
