Pictures of the updated compact crossover Audi Q2L have been leaked on the Internet. The L prefix denotes an extended base. Also, the car is distinguished by stretched rear doors. However, the SUV will not appear on the world market. It will be exclusive to China, where elongated versions of global models are in steady demand.
From the pictures published in the Chinese media, it can be understood that the model received a new radiator grill, made in the corporate style of Audi cars. Also, several changes are envisaged in the cabin of the future model. The new grille received chrome stripes similar to the older Q7 crossover. The headlights of the model, both at the front and at the rear, have been re-shaped and angular. The high-gloss black accents next to the boot lid feature the automaker's signature black rings. The S-line package also adds other dark accents to the body, such as the mirrors.
The interior has a new steering wheel with a sloped bottom in a sporty manner, and the multimedia system screen will receive a servo drive. It can be removed when not in use, in exactly the same way as it is implemented in the current generations of Audi cars. True, this screen will appear only in older trim levels.
In terms of powertrains, everything will remain the same. Despite the fact that many automakers are threatening to completely abandon traditional engines, the updated Q2L will not be a hybrid or an electric car. Although it is possible that such configurations will also be. The turbocharged engine will have a displacement of 1.4 liters and a power of 147 hp. The gearbox is the familiar seven-speed DSG "robot" with two clutches. At least, the 35TFSI version of the car will be equipped with just such a unit, but this is not the only engine-gearbox option.
