Audi, which is competing against BMW, Mercedes-Benz and other luxurious brands, has just released Q2 in Pakistan. It is targeting a different audience as compared to Q3. The Q2 is smaller and can be called a ‘Mini’ Q3.
It comes in three trims – SE, Sport and the high-end S Line. Audi Q2 makes up for its higher price with a more premium interior.
This time Audi has moved away from its general styling trend with sharper, less curvy looks and an unusual sense of proportions all across. This is the first car designed under the leadership of new design boss Marc Lichte.
There are full LED lights, a feature commonly seen in higher end models of the most cars. Audi has also added a power tailgate, which comes as a standard. You will find it in 11 colors, four options for the D-pillar and five alloy rim designs including larger ones. There are some other exterior customization options as well.
Talking about the interior, Q2’s dashboard is a mixture of buttons, rotary controllers and an infotainment screen, which supports Android and Apple smartphones.
Virtual Cockpit is another Audi exclusive which replaces standard speedometer and tachometer with a customizable 12.3-inch display to highlight prioritized info and give a futuristic feel while driving. It comes with a Head-up-display (HUD) so all the important info is right in front of the driver. Q2 comes up with space for 4-adults to sit comfortably.
Audi Q2 comes with three engine options including 1.6 liter Diesel Engine (114bhp), 1.4 liter Petrol Engine (148bhp) and a turbo charged 1.0 liter Petrol Engine (114bhp). Pakistan will only get the latter 1.0L TFSI variant.
Audi Q2 has been released with a higher price tag in Pakistan. While it is available globally for around $30,000, Pakistani rates are about 30 percent higher; the car costs Rs 4.35 million in Pakistan. On the other hand, the higher-end exclusive version goes on sale for Rs. 4.85 million. The car can be bought through authorized Audi dealers in major cities of Pakistan.
