Audi Q2 2018 price and specification confirmed


The Audi Q2 2018 range is now available to order, with some specification changes and a new flagship petrol all-wheel drive (AWD) variant headlining the changes for the brand's smallest SUV.

The 2018 Audi Q2 model line-up now has three offerings: the entry-level 1.4 TFSI Design model, which starts from $41,800 (up $700 since its early 2017 launch); the newly added quattro all-wheel-drive 2.0 TFSI Sport model at $48,500; and the range-topping 2.0 TDI Sport, which lists at $49,100 (previously $47,900).

There is a good amount of standard kit fitted to all Q2 models, including the addition of new LED headlights which are far more attractive, not to mention more illuminating, than the existing halogens - it was previously the case that buyers needed to option the higher-tech lights.
