more power for Q2 petrol in future ? when?

Post by acid » Thu May 25, 2017 9:31 am

Hello everyone, my first post here.

I am considering the Audi Q2 but I want a more powerful petrol engine plus AWD Quattro.

Audi confirmed that 2.0 TSFI turbo petrol 140 kw engine for Q2 Quattro AWD is coming but they are very vague about the timing of the on-sale.

Does anyone have any information when this car is likely to be available ?

PS I also heard rumours about SQ2 and RSQ2 in future but I am guessing those variants must be 1-2+ years away.

thanks

Audi France introduced the 2.0 TFSI with 190hp on their online configurator two weeks ago. But someone must have screwed it up because it was almost immediately removed. Maybe they hadn't the autorisation to sell it yet. Anyway it's a proof that the 190hp is coming.

Why need more power. I have an 2.0 TDI Quattro 150 HP and its very fast.
My dealer says they wait until the SQ2 to put more power..He said about 230 HP...

Well, I do agree with you re "why need more power" question.

Each to their own.

I think it depends on which country you live/drive in and how much you can afford to spend on a car and it also depends on your previous car too.

For me the requirement for my next new car (bought in 2017/2018) is for it to be able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in under 7.0 seconds and the engine must *not* be a diesel and the car must be *either* a rear-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive.
This is just me.

My local Audi Australia country representative tells me (just this week) there is no release information available on SQ2 or RSQ2.
Dont expect them to be announced for quite some time.
Anything your local Audi dealer have told you is pure speculation and guess-work on their part.

The 190 bhp/140kw petrol-turbo 2.0 litre Q2 "TFSI" is publicly announced and is officially coming by "end of 2017".
It sprints 0-100 km/h in ~6.8 seconds (Audi data).

We are now in June 2017 (as of this week) and this particular model was actually first announced as early as ~March 2016.
It is still not available even at home in Germany so I now have reasons to think this is a 2018 release car, particularly in UK/Australian right-hand-drive specification.

Perhaps Audi have hit some technical difficulties with this Q2 model which they do not wish to share (my personal gut feel only).
Or it could be that they cannot build even the current models of Q2 fast enough due to high demand.

Sales of Diesel cars are slowing fast due to the uncertainty of how Governments are going to treat them going forward.

It's likely that production of petrol engines haven't caught up with demand yet.

FYI, I just saw the 140 kw 2.0 litre TFSI turbo petrol Q2 Quattro on Audi.de Germany web site, from Euro$ 33.900
0-100 kmh in 6.5 seconds
(of course the price goes up very quickly once you add options!!)
Now I do wonder how long it will take for the right-hand-drive (UK, AUS, Japan, India etc) versions to become available?

Would be interesting to get some feedback on how the 2.0 petrol drives. We have a 1.4 TFSI S-tronic and it feels very fast!

You can't compare diesel to petrol engines...

I looked at it as well and if your not careful on the options as you say and creep over that £40k mark (which won't be difficult) then the 1st 5 years VED is over £500

Keep below and it's £200 year 1, then £140 a year
