Looks like the Q2 is coming to India sometime in the remaining months of 2016. Petrol versions also planned - for the other Qs and As as well. Interesting times ahead.

Yes, which means the launch is near. I was hoping the Q2 base petrol would be priced closer to 22 lac, but everyone seems to be suggesting 25 lac ex showroom :( These cars seem just a lil bit out of reach every single time...

So true unfortunately. What used to be 10 to 15 lacs is now 20 to 25 and so on.
Maybe when they launch a Nano sized micro hatch we could probably look at 20 lacs or thereabouts.

NDTV thinks Q2 could start below 20 lac.

I doubt it thought...

I guess it is just me who finds it annoying that cars the size of premium hatchbacks have strangely and shamelessly started calling themselves SUVs.

Not the least impressed, even if it is offered under 20L ex-showroom. JMO!

I took the opportunity to take a short test drive of the Audi Q2 today, when a friend was evaluating it. The drive was for about 30km, of which I spent the first 10km in the backseat and the rest driving. The car was the 1.4 TFSI AT.

I had earlier test driven the Audi A3 Sportback (and A3 sedan) and my impression was that they lack legroom at the back. With the Q2 being even shorter than the A3, I expected things to be worse. But, I was pleasantly surprised with the rear legroom in the Q2 - for a person of my height 5'8", sitting behind a driver of the same height. However, the base of the seat is short and the seat back is too upright, so I am not sure about comfort levels on long trips. The seat is quite firm.

It is not a tall car by any means, but ingress and egress is easier than a sedan (like my Octavia). You can walk into the cabin.

At the front, the driver has a good view of the surroundings. However, the seat base is short (better than rear seat) and the seat felt narrow compared to the Octavia. The cabin felt more airy than that of the A3. Maybe I'm wrong, but it also felt slightly wider than the A3. The headroom at the front and rear is adequate for a person on my height.

The steering feels good to hold and is very light, but somehow it didn't seem to weigh up as much as in my Octavia at speed (maybe I'm just too used to the Octavia). The higher CoG was quite evident in the short test drive (I took it up to 110kmph) during lane changes (compared to a sedan), but it is by no means scary.

The tire noise is quite evident inside the cabin. My friend, who drove the A3 recently, remarked that A3 cabin feels more isolated from outside noise.

The 1.4TFSI+DSG combo works very well for this baby SUV. I didn't feel short on power at any point of time.

The boot is slightly larger than that of the A3. The boot opening is large, the boot is well-shaped and I guess it can hold the luggage for a weekend trip for a family of 4 quite easily.

I cannot comment on how well-loaded it is in terms of features, since the TD car had lot of optional extras configured. I'm not sure how many of those features are available as standard.

My friend who is evaluating the car is quite impressed with it and another friend who accompanied us on the test drive is already sold on the Q2 (he is planning to replace his car next year).

Is there any news of India launch? Nothing is updated since long. I really liked this car. if they priced it well, I will prefer it any day over Jeep Compass.
