Audi Q2 received a “stretched” versionAugust 28, 2018
In the web, there were “live” photos of the elongated SUV Audi Q2. The main market for the new version will be China.
The smallest crossover Audi debuted in 2016, but before the Celestial model reached only now, and in a “stretched” form. Pictures of the new version of Q2 were distributed by the Chinese edition of Autohome. The Celestial Empire will become the main – and perhaps the only – market for this modification. The official premiere of the elongated Audi Q2, which received the name “L”, will be held August 31 at the motor show in Chengdu. Issue models will be installed at the joint venture joint venture of Volkswagen and FAW.
According to preliminary data, the length of the base Chinese Audi Q2L grew by 38 mm compared to the European model and reached 4,229 mm. The wheelbase was increased by 33 mm to 2,628 mm. The width of the Chinese version, on the contrary, is reduced – 1 785 mm instead of 1 794 mm for the model intended for Europe. The height of Q2L is 1,548 mm (40 mm more than the European Q2).
Chinese novelty will be offered with two variants of the radiator grille – chrome and made of glossy black plastic. The latter got the version of S-Line. It is expected that the Audi Q2L will be available with a petrol turbo four 1.4 TFSI with a capacity of 131 or 150 hp. This engine is included in the scale of the European SUV, but only in the 150-strong version. Also in the Europe, the “short” Audi Q2 can be bought with a gasoline turbo 1.0 TFSI (116 hp) and turbo four 2.0 TFSI (190 hp), 1.6 TDI diesel (116 hp) and 2.0 TDI (150 or 190 hp).
Audi has not yet announced plans to sell Q2L outside of China. Most likely, an elongated cross will remain an “exclusive” for the Chinese market. By the way, in 2018 in China appeared another “stretched” SUV premium brand – Q5L: the length of this SUV is 4 765 mm (+ 102 mm compared to the global Q5), the wheelbase is 2,908 mm (+89 mm). Long-base Q5 is also available only in China.
