Audi Q2 1.0 TFSI S Tronic Review
Different But Not Less

a stretched out boot lid design, gives the compact car a sense of girth

The 1.4 litre was certainly a gem to drive. We loved how Audi had ensured fuel saving technology, like coasting and cylinder cancellation made the 1.4 Q2 such an attractive buy. Revealed back during the motor show, the #Untaggable car certainly delivered on styling and customisable styling quirks.

But currently going for about $170k, the 1.4 might be quite an expensive pill to swallow, and Audi has also launched an even more frugal 1.0 to go easier on the pocket.


With its chunky styling, the Q2 certainly stands out, in a time when cars are a little rounder. A very large front grille with a silver surround, and angular headlamps with LED lighting forms the face, together with intakes sited below the lights.

Origami side styling might not be to everyone’s taste, but a company used to producing cars which are more right-of-field in terms of styling. This is certainly a refreshing change.

Spaced out rear tail lamps which house Audi’s signature but very tiny dynamic turn indicators, and a stretched out boot lid design, gives the compact car a sense of girth.

Adding to the off-road inspired look of the Q2, there is black plastic trim surrounding the car, and black plastic wheel arch guards.  One thing that the black guards around those arches do visually though, is they do not help those 16” rims with 60 series tyres, making them look even smaller than they really are.

These guys are fast, responding the very next day with offers and more importantly higher than what was offered by the dealer whom I am buying my car from.

Yazz is very professional. He advised me on when to sell the car and checked in with me later. His dealer, Sam, was awesome. An understanding and kind man. He went the extra mile and accommodated our timing.
