Rival today especially the Juke Nissan, Mazda CX-3, Honda HR-V and, above all, Mini Countryman Audi Q2 raises the level of a category clear growth. But analyzed, not only we believe it can be a great alternative (more expensive, of course) these SUV, but even within the Audi itself (or any premium brand) to the traditional compact car. In fact, This part of Q2 the same MQB platform VW Group employing the Audi A3, sharing battle with his 3-door version and offering greater interior space and versatility. Even financially compensated: this unit we tested is announced (without all-wheel drive) for 28,450 euros... when the same Audi A3 Sportback 2.0 TDI costs 28,500 euros. A more interesting alternative if you like aesthetics and functionality SUV.
