The smallest crossover from Ingolstadt originally came two years ago, so we don’t expect bigger changes for the 2019 Audi Q2 model, at least when it comes to base versions. On the other side, it looks like the performance, SQ2 version is on its way and that should hit the market pretty soon, definitely by the end of the year. On the other side, standard models will continue in the same ways. They will feature the same design, the same engines in the offer etc. Some of the possible novelties are new color options, as well as new standard features.
2019 Audi Q2 Design
In terms of base design characteristics, the 2019 Audi Q2 will continue in the same way. This is a pretty small crossover, the smallest in Audi’s offer. It comes with pretty compact dimensions, featuring only 102.4 inches in wheelbase. It rides on the company’s super modular MQB platform, which underprints pretty much all subcompact and compact models from the VW group. The next year won’t bring any important change, but some reports suggest 2019 Audi Q2 could come with a few more exterior colors in the offer.
Is the Audi Q2 a spacious crossover?
As we already mentioned, this is the smallest crossover that comes from Audi. Therefore, you can’t expect some spectacular numbers when it comes to legroom and overall 2019 Audi Q2 interior space. While front seats seem pretty comfortable, taller people will definitely fell tight on the rear bench. On the other side, cargo capacity seems ok, pretty much a class-average.
2019 Audi Q2 Trim Levels
The 2019 Audi Q2 will continue with the same trim level organization is likely to remain unchanged. There are four trim levels in the offer and each one should keep pretty much the same list of standard features, with only a few tweaks.
The base trim is called SE and it is a pretty bare bone version, considering the brand’s reputation, and comes with most basic features only. The Sport trim seems like a bit of an upgrade, with standard features like navigation, cruise control, climate control, automatic lights, 17-inch wheels and much more.
Next in the line is S Line trim, which comes with not just more standard equipment, but also adds a dose of sportiness. Some of the highlights are 18-inch wheels, sporty leather seats, ambient lighting, as well as several visual upgrades line new bumpers and much more.
Finally, there is the Edition #1 trim, which comes with a little bit oversized 19-inch wheels, considering car’s proportions. Also, you can count on Nappa leather, ambient interior lighting and much more.
How will the new Audi SQ2 look like?
The biggest novelty for the next year will be a new SQ2 version. We are sure that you’ve got used to Audi’s designation, so you can easily guess that this version is all about performances. We are about to see various chassis tunings, as well as numerous styling upgrades. However, the most important thing about this version will be a new engine. According to the latest reports, we will see the same unit that powers the S3 model. It is a 2.0-liter turbo inline-four engine with a max power of 292 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque.
2019 Audi Q2 Engines
Rest of the Q2 models will continue with the same engines in the offer. There are three gasoline and two diesel engines, all equipped with a turbocharger. Base models come with a three-cylinder 1.0-liter engine, which is good for about 115 horsepower. A 1.4-liter engine delivers around 150, while the bigger 2.0-liter unit is good for about 190 hp.
When it comes to diesel engines, count on two familiar TDI units, with three output versions in total, between 115 and 190 horsepower.
2019 Audi Q2 Release Date and Price
The new model should come by the end of the year. Although we can find many reports, there is no official confirmation for the 2019 Audi Q2 USA version at the moment. Price should remain the same, which means that the base model will go around 26.000 dollars.
