The engines of the Audi Q2.

Audi offers a selection of six engines for the Q2: three TFSI and three TDI engines whose power outputs range from 815 kW (116 hp) to 140 kW (190 hp). The engine program follows the principle of rightsizing. This is about striking the perfect balance between vehicle class, engine displacement, power output, torque and efficiency behavior in everyday conditions. Displacements of the engines in the Q2 range from 1.0 to 2.0 litres.

The TFSI engines

The following gasoline engines are available: the exceptionally efficient 1.0 TFSI (85 kW/116 hp) three-cylinder engine, the 1.4 TFSI (110 kW/150 hp) equipped with cylinder deactivation (COD: cylinder on demand) and the powerful 2.0 TFSI (140 kW/190 hp). Audi has developed a new combustion process for the latter, which enables the four-cylinder engine to realize the fuel economy benefits of a downsizing engine in part-load operation, while offering the benefits of an engine with large displacement at higher loads. This results in excellent efficiency and power behavior over the entire engine speed range.

The TDI engines

The gateway to the diesel engines is the four-cylinder diesel with 1.6 liter displacement delivering 85 kW (116 hp). Positioned above this is the best-selling 2.0 TDI, available at two power levels – 110 kW (150 hp) and 140 kW (190 hp).

The entrance in the quattro world.

The quattro permanent all-wheel drive system is standard with the top TDI and the 2.0 TFSI. Customers can also choose quattro with the 1.4 TFSI COD and the 2.0 TDI with 110 kW (150 hp) – an attractive entry into the quattro world. The hydraulic multi-plate clutch with its electronic control transfers torque nearly entirely to the front wheels in normal driving, but it can redirect torque to the rear axle variably and lightning fast if necessary. This is how the quattro drive unites driving pleasure and driving safety, taking them to a new level. The torque vectoring system complements its performance.

Automatic or manual: You have the choice

As an alternative to the six-speed manual transmission, Audi also offers the S tronic dual clutch transmission with seven speeds for all engines. In the case of the top TDI and the 2.0 TFSI, a newly developed dual-clutch transmission is used, which has a new type of oil supply and reduced friction.

Progressive steering

Progressive steering is standard in all versions. It varies the steering gear ratio as a function of the steering input; the ratio is made more direct with large steering movements.

Audi drive select

The optional Audi drive select handling system lets the driver choose between four modes: auto, comfort, dynamic and efficiency. With the MMI radio, the individual mode is added. Audi drive select has an effect on vehicle systems, e.g. it influences the steering and gear shift characteristics, and on the optional chassis with adaptive damper control. The Q2 is also well-suited to off-road conditions with the ESC Offroad mode and 20 centimeters (7.9 in) of ground clearance.
