Audi today officially commenced the bookings for its most affordable SUV coming to India.

Interested buyers can pre-book the Audi Q2 compact SUV with a token amount of ₹ 2 lakh through Audi's official as well as any authorised dealership across India. The upcoming Audi Q2 will be carmaker's fifth product to be launched in the Indian market after Q8, A8L, RS7 and the RSQ8.

The carmaker also announced introductory 'Peace of Mind' benefit that comes bundled with a 5-year service package with 2+3 years extended warranty and 2+3 years roadside assistance, which comes complimentary with the booking. The upcoming Audi Q2 will cater to the increasingly progressive Indian customer, and it will be a feature-rich SUV packed equipped with connectivity, infotainment and assistance systems.
The SUV will be positioned below the Q3 in Audi's India portfolio and it will be underpinned by Volkswagen AG's MQB platform. Though the SUV will be Audi's smallest offering in India, the design of the Q2 will continue to carry Audi DNA. It will be accentuated by a single-frame grille flanked by LED DRLs and the headlights. The SUV will also sport black cladding across the bumpers, running boards and even the wheel arches giving a chunky and muscular look.
Mechanically, the Audi Q2 will be powered by a 2.0-litre petrol engine, tuned to belt out 190 bhp and 320 Nm. It is the same unit that also powers the Tiguan All Space. The compact SUV can go from standstill to 100 kmph in just 6.5 seconds before hitting the top speed of 228 kmph. The powertrain will be mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, with the Quattro all-wheel-drive system.
