Audi Q2 Facelift Announced

Audi Q2 2021 5

The compact Audi Q2 has been updated for 2021. Here's a look at what's changed.

The Audi Q2 was revealed 4 years ago and the Ingolstadt-based brand claims it was a huge success. For 2021, Audi has given it an update. 

The changes are considerable and as a result, the Audi Q2's length has grown a tiny bit, but the real changes can be seen at the front, with a new-look nose with the option of LED and Matrix LED headlights. Customers can also opt for the advanced and S Line trim levels, which give more visual punch. Audi claims the S Line Q3 is "even more expressive." 

The Audi Q2 colour palette has been expanded and there are 5 new colours, with considerable customisation options available. 

Audi has reworked the interior of the Q2 and the compact SUV features new-look air vents and gear knob. Naturally there are a ton of options on offer and Audi has sports seats, power tailgate and trailer hitch to name a but a few. The infotainment system has been updated and the new MMI and Audi Virtual Cockpit is available. There's also a Bang & Olufsen Premium audio system with 14 speakers available. Safety-wise, Audi has introduced some safety packages with advanced tech like Audi pre-sense which scans the road ahead of you, while things like automatic parking is available as an option. Cleverly, the traffic sign recognition works in conjunction with the adaptive cruise control and the car will automatically slow down to match the limits.

In terms of engines, Audi is offering 3 petrol engines and 2 diesel engines. The 1.5 TFSI punches out 110 kW and 250 Nm, and there's cylinder deactivation available which will assist in economy. Speaking of, Audi is claiming 5.4 L/100 km. A 6-speed manual gearbox and a 7-speed S tronic is available. There's no mention of the other engines, but Audi did say there will be more information towards the end of 2020. 

Under the skin, Audi has introduced progressive steering which is said to 'increase the handling and vehicle dynamics on winding roads.' A sports suspension which lowers the body by 10mm is available as an option. There's also damper control available. There are 3 new alloy rim designs, ranging from 16-inch to 19-inch in size. 

We'll update you as soon as we hear more information regarding the 2021 Audi Q2.
