Q2 quite?

Post by Skingsley » Mon Jan 14, 2019 1:53 pm

Hi all, im. New here

Im am considering the Q2 everything about it suits me and my needs . the problem is i have a hearing problem that can gets worse with a lot of noise.

A friend owns a Q2 and said his is noisy yet when i test drove one i thought it was quite. So i wanted to Hear from more Q2 owners to see if they find theres quite?

My partner told me to make sure i have good tyres on to reduce tyre noise and avoid low profile tyres.

Hi and welcome to the club! My Q2 has big wheels, 19 inch. I dont find it noisy and im coming from an Audi A3 1.6 diesel. My Q2 is a 2.0 tdi. I think the petrol engines are quieter though but i wouldn't get a petrol just because of this as there is no problem with the diesel . My Q2 is a great cruiser and really have had no problems with it. I would suggest you try to avoid the bigger wheels maybe but then your Q2 might look a little odd as it doesnt look great without the big wheels. Either way, i think you will be fine. Go test drive one!! :D

I have the Q2 1.4 s line petrol and have it in comfort mode with 18” wheels. I can’t say I find it noisy at all. My previous car Honda Civic was noisier.

I have the 1.4 TFSi Sport with the standard 17" wheels, and it's much quieter than my previous A3 2.0 tdi. The Q2 handles great with the taller tyres, as well as being a smoother ride. What's more I've had no kerb damage to the alloys, which was a recurrent problem with the lower-profile tyres on the A3.

I daresay "there is no problem with the diesel" but the balance of advantage is definitely shifting. To my surprise, I'm getting very nearly the same mpg with the 1.4 TFSi as I used to get with the 2.0 tdi. And I'll avoid the future congestion charges and road-tax increases on diesel motors, with the effect on re-sale prices.

As will all Q2 diesel owners. The current and future laws do not include only diesel engines but petrol too. It actually applies to Euro 5 diesel cars in the future. My 2.0tdi is Euro 6b which is the most advanced so far. Euro 7 is coming out soon for diesel and petrol engines. You aren't safe just because you have a petrol engine! that is a general misconception not made clear by the tabloids! In fact, petrol particulate filters are now introduced so the petrol engines will also have the same problems with the DPF as diesel engines do, such a regenerations etc...

Also, do not forget that this is an international forum. No such congestion charges or road tax increases in any other country. Also, diesel is way more popular in the EU compared to the UK due to lower fuel prices. Re-sell values are just as strong as petrol too. Anyway, i would buy diesel again in the UK. The fees you talk about are for central London and as i mentioned before, apply for older gen cars, petrol & diesel alike. I can drive my Q2 just fine in central London and pay the same as you, including any current advertised future law changes.

2.0TDI Quattro here, currently on 17" Michelin Alpin 5s for the winter. It's a bit rattly around town and getting up to speed but once it gets into 7th gear it's very quiet. At 140kmh it will be doing ~1300rpm with minimal wind noise.

1.4 tsfi , a very smooth and quiet engine , cannot imagine any diesel being any quieter
it is well reported professionally that the car rides best on standard 17 “ , larger may look “better” but with larger tyres comes increased noise and inferior ride
test drive 1.4 or 1.5 as it is now on standard tyres , side by side against any tdi with 18 or19 “ wheels , the only way to really make your final decision

I also find my 1.4 petrol extremely quiet while puddling around town but I think your refuring to road noise at speed from the wheels, I have the 19's on mine which are low profile but still not to bad at speed not silent what car is? I wouldnt have chose 19's out of choice but as we bought a #1 edition demo my hands were tied but if you go for 17's it will be far better as it will have a deeper profile wall, downside not as good looking but my pet hate is a noisy cabin my preferred choice would have been 18's but as said find some second hand ones and test the 3 options
