The German automaker has carried out a modest restyling of the Audi Q2 crossover. While you will have to put the previous Q2 next to the revised version to see the differences, a few things have really changed.

In 2016, the Ingolstadt-based company is launching the Audi Q2, the younger brother of the compact crossover Audi Q3. In the second quarter of this year, the crossover will “blow out” four candles, so it’s time to make a facelift, albeit a rather modest one.

From the outside, the updated Q2 can be recognized primarily by the new headlights, which are now always equipped with LED technology and, optionally, with matrix technology. The latest models get dynamic direction indicators in the rear LED lights, front bumper and headlights separated by a tighter fold than before, and the top-of-the-line Q2s have tiny vertical stripes between the bonnet and the grille.

Audi is providing the Q2 with updated bumpers: the rear has a built-in diffuser and sharp folds like the flank. Other visual changes are related to the introduction of five new exterior colors. The C-pillar is available in both body color and gray, black or silver. The side inserts are black for the basic version, gray for the Advanced Line and the body color for the S-line.

The adjustments to the interior are minimal: Audi has slightly redesigned the air vents and the gear lever. Alcantara lovers will now have to look elsewhere, as the material will be replaced by Dinamica microfiber. Basic versions of the Q2 will receive analogue gauges and a simple MMI radio in the center console. Richer options will be available with a 12.3-inch virtual instrument cluster and 8.3-inch digital display for the infotainment system.

Initially, only the 1.5 TFSI with 150 hp was listed on the Audi engine list. and 250 Nm, to which were added two TFSI and two diesel units. In any case, there will be 1.0 TSI and two 2.0 TDIs in the range. Pricing and specifications will be published ahead of market launch.
