Auto Express picture rendering showing 2 candidates claimed that the appearance of Q3, Q2 are quite similar. It will be launched in late 2013. The sources reveal that the Audi Q2 will be the smallest 4×4 still from a premium automobile manufacturer. Formulations are in process to make a complete variety of Q models, extending the present 3 car line-up to 7 vehicles by the end of 2017.

Most Q2s are probably to be front-wheel drive but Rupert Stadler; Chief Executive Officer reveals that it may come with a better twist. For instance, if the clients ask for 4-wheel-drive then the company has means and techniques to meet their request. Remember, the concept like “Metro project”? It had Quattro but the wheels were prompted by an electric motor.

Moreover, for those who worth speed more than exhaust, there are clues of a model Q2 s having S-line trim as well as200bhp from a powerful petrol engine.
