More powerful Q2 2.0 TFSI quattro lands in Audi showrooms with sportier promise
16 Nov 2017
CHOICE is the word of the times in Australia’s highly fragmented new-vehicle market. Like the shards of a smashed piece of glass, sales volumes have scattered across showroom floors, split between a greater variety of new models than ever in spite of continuing overall market increases.
For Audi, the way to combat increased choice is with increased choice. Launched locally nine months ago, the funky Q2 small SUV gave buyers an alternative to both the more conservative Q3 that actually plays in the same genre and the likewise formal A3 small hatchback.
Now, the addition of a more powerful model grade, in the form of the Q2 2.0 TFSI quattro, expands the range from two to three and provides buyers a reason not to buy a Mini Countryman S or JCW, or spend extra on a Mercedes-Benz GLA250 that exceeds $60,000 plus on-road costs.
It matters not what Audi buyers select, but merely that they select an Audi. So is this newest model the one to go for?
