Audi Q2 review - Reliability and Safety

Impressive safety kit and sharing so much with other Audi, VW, Skoda and SEAT models should help reliability

The Audi Q2 comes with an impressive roster of safety kit as standard, plus some super-advanced stuff that’s on the options list.

Audi’s pre sense safety kit is standard and includes Autonomous Emergency Braking, which will put the anchors on if it spots a pedestrian stepping out in front of the car.

Other big car options include adaptive cruise control, lane departure warnings and lane keep assistance, plus traffic sign recognition and alerts if there’s traffic coming when you’re reversing.

Plus, of course, there is set to be the usual array of airbags as well as standard traction and stability controls and anti-lock brakes.

Owners are keen on Audi’s upmarket image, but responses from customers have revealed that they are less keen on other aspects of the ownership experience. That has improved somewhat recently, with the manufacturer finishing 16th out of 30 in our 2019 Driver Power brand survey. The Q2 itself, meanwhile, only just scraped into the top 100 cars, finishing in 95th place.


The standard Audi warranty lasts for three years or 60,000 miles, although the mileage cap is removed in years one and two.


Audi service schedules tend to range from 9,000 miles for minor checks to 19,000 miles for a full service. To keep a check on costs, Audi dealers will sell you one of many fixed-price deals, including Audi Complete.
