Design

New Q2 is based upon VW Group's MQB platform and has been positioned as a compact crossover. Aesthetically, Q2's design complements the design of larger models in 's Q Series line-up. However, the fact that it is the pre-facelift model which has been launched in India, the design doesn't look as updated as one would have preferred.

Highlights of the Q2 include a large blacked out grille, quintessential LED head-lamps and DRLs, rectangular tail-lamps and heavy black cladding across the body. On the inside, the interiors look premium but there are clear reflections of 's erst-while design ideology.

Features

On the features front, the Q2 won't qualify as one of the most heavily packed premium crossover. It does miss out on features like electrical adjustment for front seats and rear AC vents. However, it does get multiple goodies like 's Virtual cockpit, dual-zone climate control, cruise control, MMI interface, auto dimming IRVM, wireless charging, 180 watt 10-speaker audio system, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity and much more.
