Audi is broadening the appeal of its Q2 compact sport utility vehicle this week with the addition of a new version notable not only as the most powerful in the range but also as the first petrol-powered model to be underpinned by sure-footed quattro all-wheel drive. Offered as an alternative to the 148bhp 2.0 TDI quattro model, which was introduced late last year, the new Q2 2.0 TFSI quattro 187bhp S-tronic is now available in S line and Edition #1 specification.

The new 2.0 TFSI produces the highest power output currently available in a Q2, facilitating acceleration to 100km/h from rest in 6.5 seconds - the fastest sprint time in the range. Top speed also reaches an impressive 227km/h. Ensuring optimal traction and handling under any road conditions, the quattro system's electro-hydraulically actuated multi-plate clutch distributes torque continuously between the axles.

Its seven-speed S-tronic incorporates a freewheeling mode when the standard Audi drive select handling system is set to 'efficiency' mode, and with the start-stop function, the engine already shuts off when speed drops to 7km/h. Both contribute to up to 19km/L combined and 144g/km when chosen in S line specification, and 18.7km/L combined in conjunction with 146g/km for the Edition #1, even on the 19-inch alloy wheels it is fitted with as standard.
