For some people, second place is never good enough, which is why Audi has created the Q2 Edition #1 – a special-edition model that tops off the new Q2 range and offers exemplary specification and equipment. This even more sophisticated version of the compact SUV is instantly recognisable, thanks to its exclusive Quantum grey paint colour. It sets the vehicle apart from the crowd, and will delight those who like to create trends rather than follow them.

Building on the basis of Audi’s highly desirable S line specification, the Q2 Edition #1 boasts similar styling cues but takes them to the next level. The eye-catching effect of the unique body colour is enhanced with a titanium black grille surround along with contrasting Manhattan grey paintwork on the lower bodywork, black mirror housings and C-pillars. The latter are also emblazoned with Audi’s iconic four-ring badge.

COLOUR OPTIONS FOR INTERIOR LED LIGHTING PACKAGE WITH ILLUMINATED INLAYS

Muscular 19-inch ‘5-arm-rotor’ anthracite black alloy wheels complete the moody look, while LED headlights with dynamic scrolling LED rear indicators punctuate the dark like stars in the night. Inside, the Edition #1 continues to impress, flaunting front Sports seats, a leather-wrapped Sports steering wheel and accompanying Granite grey Fine Nappa leather interior package. There are also aluminium door sills, titanium grey headlining and eye-catching illuminated inlays.

Our Edition #1 featured a 150PS 2.0-litre TDI turbodiesel engine, quattro drive and a seven-speed S tronic transmission. A 150PS 1.4 TFSI turbocharged petrol model is also available, with front-wheel drive and the choice of either S tronic or six-speed manual transmission. Whichever version of the Edition #1 you choose, get ready to enjoy a winning feeling.
