The equipment of the new Audi Q2.

Operating the Q2 is easy and ergonomic as it is in every Audi. The MMI screen is positioned high on the instrument panel as standard. Its size depends on the infotainment system that is ordered. Its functions are controlled by a rotary/push- button control and two buttons on the center tunnel. The driver assistance systems for the Q2 come directly from the full-size class.

Top-notch: driver assistance systems

The driver assistance systems for the Q2 come directly from the full-size class. Audi pre sense front – a standard on-board solution – can recognize hazardous situations that can occur with crossing pedestrians or other vehicles in front of the car by radar. The system warns the driver and initiates hard braking if necessary – down to a standstill at low speeds.

The optional systems are also multifaceted and offer high performance. Audi has bundled the most popular ones in the assistance package, including adaptive cruise control with Stop & Go function and traffic jam assist.

The first system operates with radar support to maintain a desired distance to the vehicle ahead. Traffic jam assist also makes use of additional ultrasonic sensors and a front camera. It can also take over steering work in slow-moving traffic on well-built roads at speeds up to 65 km/h (40.4 mph). Audi side assist monitors lane changes by radar, and the video camera-based Audi active lane assist, supported by a video camera, helps the driver to stay on track in the driving lane. The camera-based traffic sign recognition system graphically shows the driver speed limits, no passing zones and restricted access zones as well as auxiliary signs. The latest generation of park assist can maneuver the compact SUV into parallel or perpendicular parking spaces. When backing out of a perpendicular parking space, rear cross traffic assist comes into play; it uses its radar sensors to monitor traffic behind the Q2.

Brilliant displays: Audi virtual cockpit and head-up display

Another highlight is the Audi virtual cockpit whose 12.3-inch screen shows highly detailed, brilliant graphics and offers two display modes: One focuses on the tachometer and speedometer, and the other emphasizes infotainment and/or navigation data. In addition to the Audi virtual cockpit and top infotainment system, a third technology from the full-size class has been implemented – the head-up display. It projects important information onto a glass panel in the driver’s direct visual field. This information can include navigation data, the vehicle speed and warning messages.

MMI navigation plus: user operation that is a lot of fun

Operating the Q2 is easy and ergonomic as it is in every Audi. The MMI screen is positioned high on the instrument panel as standard. Its size depends on the infotainment system that is ordered. Its functions are controlled by a rotary/push- button control and two buttons on the center tunnel.

Topping the infotainment range is MMI navigation plus with MMI touch. Its menu structure and the touchpad on the rotary/push-button control that allows scrolling and zooming make operating it a pleasure. Natural language operation and MMI search are just as intuitive. Often just a few characters need to be input to arrive at the desired function. In addition, MMI navigation plus with MMI touch integrates a Wi-Fi hotspot. This lets passengers in the Audi Q2 surf the web
with their mobile devices. The online services of Audi connect can also be accessed via the MMI touch – they range from traffic and parking-space information to navigation with Google Earth.

The flat rate data plan required for this is included, because together with the Audi connect feature European customers also get a SIM card (embedded SIM) that is permanently installed in the car. It also permits roaming in most European countries, because it can automatically access the provider for the specific country when required. Data packages can also be ordered for the Wi-Fi hotspot, independent of any integrated Audi connect services.
