Hi
I am on the verge of buying a Q2 1.6 diesel s line
My biggest question is how economical is this engine
I currently do 350 miles a week and and constantly filling up with my current car
Can you tell me how much you are to fill your tank and roughly how many miles a full tank would give you

1.6 TDI is very economical however it all depends from your driving style. If you do constant stop&go in the city it can go up to 6-7 l/100Km but if you know how to drive properly you can ride for 5l/100Km

Our average after 20,000 Km from new is 5.3L/100Km (70% highway 30% city driving)

Recently we were on a trip, 3 people onboard and trunk full of baggage, air conditioning on, speed 155Km/h, 650Km driven and the result was 5.3l/100Km average.

Copying and pasting my message here as you seem to have posted 3 times about the same thing. It gets confusing! Also, why start new threads days after people have answered your question in the other started threads???

Anyway, I had a 1.6tdi A3 and was getting 50-60mpg easily. I would assume you would get 50mpg minimum and more on a trip. God knows how much that is to fill up as its so variable but I would expect it to be the best engine for mpg int he whole range, thats including petrol obv.

Personally I would go for the 2.0tdi engine. The 1.6tdi is a little gutless. However if you only care about mpg then go with 1.6tdi.

Doing 350 miles a week you will be filling up a lot whichever car you get. My 2.0TDI Quattro does 500-600miles on a single tank, the 1.6 should beat that.

If economy is your sole concern why aren't you buying something like a Kia Niro?

That's what I am finding so confusing, with reading different reviews and opinions some are saying the 1.6 but then I am reading the MPG is better with the 2.0, so I am not sure what to believe.

I owned 2 Audis with both these engines. The car is different but the engine and figures are the same as Q2. I see it like this:

*A3 1.6tdi, average 55.6mpg over 30,000 miles. This included trips all over Europe and loads of city driving. City would equal 45mpg, Long trip on the motorway would be 60mpg.

* Q2 2.0tdi Quattro S-Tronic average 40mpg over 20,000 miles so far. This included trips all over Europe and loads of city driving. City would equal 35mpg, Long trip on the motorway would be 50mpg ish.

Would i choose the 1.6tdi? No, never! its too weak and has the same power as a small city car. It also really struggles when accelerating on the motorway. I have the 190bhp 2.0tdi which isnt available in the UK so you will prob have to go for the 150bhp version.

WHY are you focusing on the 1.6tdi?? just economy??

No I am not just focusing on the 1.6, if you read my 1st post I have said I have found a Q2 with this engine, as I have been continuing to look I am now noticing that I am only seeing 1.6. Engines
Of course I do want my car to be economical (who doesn't)
My car currently does 47mpg and to fill up my 1 litre polo I am nearly £50 a week
My main concern is trading in my current car and the Q2 being a bit more thirsty, defeats the point of a diesel, potentially more costly fill ups per week, higher finance payments, and I've then had to pay a deposit and current negative equity on my current car

Understood. I think you will be surprised at how good economically your current car is. The 1.6tdi is probably the best for mpg in the range or engines for the Q2. Y0u will probably average around 50mpg in the 1.6tdi with mixed town and motorway driving. If your main intention is economy then the Q2 might not be the way to go. Have you thought about an electric car? SUV's arent really the most economical due to their un-aerodynamic size or form!
