Battle of the crossovers

It’s the battle of the crossovers today as we compare Volkswagen’s popular T-Roc with the stylish yet compact Audi Q2. Both of these cars offer a distinct amount of appeal and are riding the wave of popularity currently taking over the crossover segment. 

But what do you need to know about these cars and how do they compare? Let’s take a look.

Specifications of the Audi Q2 & Volkswagen T-Roc


Interior

Volkswagen has just released an updated version of the T-Roc, which has really boosted the level of fit and finish you get inside the cabin of the car. The dashboard is now made from soft-touch materials, while a new central screen incorporates plenty of functions as well as smartphone integration tech like Apple CarPlay.

Exterior

Both cars here have the kind of chunky, raised-up aesthetic that people looking at the crossover segment expect to find. The newly updated T-Roc has a far sharper look than before, with streamlined LED headlights and intricate rear lights coupling with reprofiled bumpers front and rear to create a car with a good deal of presence. 

Volkswagen T-RocThe Q2 has been given a tweak recently too, with LED headlights and taillights now included as standard. They feature eye-catching ‘scrolling’ indicators too. The rear of the car has a sportier-looking diffuser as well, giving the Q2 a more dynamic appearance.

Engines

Though we’ve not seen the full list of engines available with the new T-Roc, it’s expected that it will incorporate the same efficient range of powertrains as before. It has been confirmed, however, that the range-topping R version will remain the firm’s flagship, incorporating  2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine with just under 300bhp. 

You’ve got a good line-up of engines to choose from with the Q2 as well. Things kick off with a turbocharged 1.0-litre petrol unit, followed by a 1.5-litre and a more powerful 2.0-litre petrol. There’s then a 2.0-litre turbocharged diesel, which will likely be the pick for higher-mileage drivers. Lower-specification cars use a six-speed manual, though the S Tronic automatic will no doubt be the go-to for many. There’s the option of quattro all-wheel-drive, too, helping to provide better traction in poor conditions. 


Specifications

The Q2’s list of specifications is in line with the rest of the Audi line-up. Things kick off with Technik, which brings 15-inch alloy wheels and LED headlights, rising through Sport to the ever-popular S Line, which adds 18-inch wheels and a full exterior styling pack. You’ve then got Black Edition, bringing a black styling pack and 19-inch alloy wheels among other features, and finally Vorsprung, adding adaptive suspension and a panoramic sunroof. As you’d expect, there’s plenty to choose from with a specification to suit most requirements. 

Audi Q2We’ve yet to see the full list of specifications for the T-Roc, but they’re to adopt a similar layout to the rest of the Volkswagen range. For instance, Life and Style trims will now replace older Design and SE L specifications. However, popular R Line and range-topping R models will remain.
