2016 Audi Q2 Revealed in Brand New Spy Shots

The 2016 Audi Q2 is coming and we know it. The latest spy shots have confirmed the existence of the vehicle. However, it was earlier referred to as the Q1, but now the company has decided to change it to the Q2 for undisclosed reasons.

The chief of the research and development division at Audi, Ulrich Hackenberg confirmed that it will be henceforth known as the Q2. While he didn’t reveal the reasons, it is being assumed that it is more of a compact vehicle which is why the brand likes to address it with this model number. Ever since the production commenced, Audi wanted the name, but they had to discard it for a while because it was owned by Fiat Chrysler. A couple of their Alfa Romeo models were addressed as the Q2, but from the recent interview with Hackenber, it has been confirmed that Audi has managed to bag the name.


The Frankfurt Motor Show is a grand success not just for Audi, but for everyone else. Every manufacturer had the opportunity to showcase some of their best cars and they made good use of it. The event was dominated by plug-in hybrids and electric cars. EVs are obviously the future of automobiles because they finally allow manufacturers and consumers to get rid of fuel issues. Besides, once brands learn the nuances of building the perfect electric motors with mileage, they can focus on performance and not worry about fuel efficiency. After all, it is easy to charge your car through multiple sources than rely on gasoline.

Following the motor show, Audi is now gearing up for the next big Geneva Motor Show scheduled to take place in March, 2016. The 2016 Audi Q2 is expected to be unveiled during this event after which pre-orders for the car will open up. However, the company didn’t reveal any plans to launch it in the United States. People who live in other parts of the world will receive the compact SUV probably before the end of 2016.


In the spy shots, we can see that the Q2 borrows some design elements from the e-tron Quattro concept car and has a low roofline. The headlights are more angular than ever and the car has an overall sleeker look to it which makes it appear aggressive on the road. The design elements are impressive so far, even though we could see little through the camouflage. It will be available in petrol and diesel variants, probably a hybrid too!
