Self Study Program 654 – Audi Q2 (type GA)

VAG SSP 654. Audi is entering into a new market segment. With the Audi Q2 Audi is introducing an SUV that rounds out the Q family downward in size. At a length of 4.19 metres, it combines a youthful design with a high level of functionality and plenty of driving fun.  Connectivity, infotainment and assistance systems come from the luxury class. The compact SUV is built at the main Audi plant in Ingolstadt, and it will launch on the European market in autumn 2016.

The Audi Q2 presents a powerful and energetic image at first glance. Two large, powerfully contoured air inlets and the highly positioned Singleframe radiator grille clearly give the front end an SUV look. In a side view, edges and polygons accentuate the vehicle’s lines in a design language that is new at Audi.

A special feature is the color-offset blade on the low-profile C-post that can be customised. Above the high shoulder line are the narrow windows which make up around one-third of the surface area relative to the metal surfaces. The flanks are drawn inward in the door area. They emphasise the wheels and with them the quattro character of the compact SUV.

At the rear, a long roof spoiler, the strong curvature of the bumper and the diffuser in underbody-protection look create a dynamic finish. On the left side the exhaust system terminates in single or twin tailpipes. Just like the wedge-shaped headlights, the rear lights can also be implemented in LED technology as an option. Audi can also supply dynamic turn signals at the rear.
