As far as safety features are concerned, it will boast of dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, ESP, Tyre Pressure Monitoring System, ISOFIX child seat anchorages, seat-belt warning system and high-speed alert system as standard. Initially, the SUV will be sold as CBU in the Indian market.
Under the bonnet, Audi Q2 will have a BS6 compliant 2.0L turbocharged petrol engine which will deliver a top power of 190bhp and peak torque of 320Nm while linked to a 7-speed dual clutch automatic transmission. It will also get Audi's Quattro all-wheel-drive system as a standard fitment. The company might launch the diesel-powered variants at a later stage. Audi Q2 price in India could be around Rs 35 Lakhs (Ex. Showroom) as it will be direct import. The SUV will not have any direct rivals in the Indian market as Mercedes Benz has not launched the second-gen GLA yet while BMW X1 is bigger in size.
