The all-new Audi Q2 is a winner in the prestigious Automotive Brand Contest. The compact SUV captured ‘Best of the Best’ honours in the exterior premium brand category.
The polygonal design of the all-new Audi Q2 adds new facets to the brand’s distinctive form. The highly positioned and front defining, octagonal single frame grille is a variation on the polygon theme, as is the structure of the two large, strongly contoured air inlets. The rear features a long roof edge spoiler and a diffuser.
The play of polygonal shapes also creates attractive effects on the flanks of the Q2. Below the windows, the sharply drawn shoulder line divides into two contours framing a concave surface with six corners. The concave shape of the flanks emphasises the wheels and adds to the ‘Quattro’ character of the compact SUV.
“In the Audi Q2, we have developed a distinctively geometric formal language with special design characteristics specific to this model. As a result the car exhibits an independent character within the Q family,” said Audi head of design Marc Lichte.
In addition to the prize for the new Q2, Audi prevailed in nine other categories. The premium car brand was declared the winner for, among other things, the OLED rear lights in the Audi TT RS (parts and accessories category ), its virtual technical communication (corporate publishing category ), and the nationwide market introduction of the Audi A4 (events category ).
The Automotive Brand Contest is presented by the German Design Council and is one of the most prestigious design competitions in the automotive industry. The awards ceremony will be held in Paris on September 29.
The Audi Q2 will launch in Ireland in Q4 2016. Pricing will be announced later this summer. Contact one of the Audi sales specialists at Audi Athlone on (090 ) 6403900 for more details.
