2016 Audi Q2 review: Small, tall and posh

Introduction

Launched in 2016, the Q2 is the fourth and smallest SUV in the Audi range. With a bold design and lots of personalisation options, it's an obvious rival to the Mini Countryman and Mercedes-Benz GLA at the top end of the market, while also providing classy opposition to the funky Nissan Juke, Citroen C4 Cactus and Renault Captur.

Verdict 8.0 / 10

The Audi Q2 is a classy, practical and compact SUV with a sporty profile and a great range of engines. It's a little on the expensive side, but it’s very competitively priced against rivals like the Mini Countryman and VW T-Roc, and ultimately it's a premium choice with plenty of kit. For many it will be the connectivity and personalisation options that swing it.
