Audi Q2

£ 22,495 - £ 43,185

What is it like on the inside?

Similar frustrations ring true here. Everything works as it should, and is laid out with the usual Audi aplomb, but some of the materials are demonstrably worse than other Audis – such as a similarly priced A3 hatchback – while the stand-up sat nav screen stays standing, and doesn’t descend coolly into the dashboard like it does in other models.

Still, the Virtual Cockpit (aka digital dials) is present and correct, the nav and media systems work beautifully (and sync neatly to your smartphone) and you can have some welcome splashes of colour inside to keep things light and cheery. But is cheery cabins why people buy Audis in droves? Exactly.

What's more, as Audi has gone touchscreen-crazy in the last few years, the Q2's infotainment has aged gracefully. Having knurled knobs to twiddle to sweep through menus or adjust the temperature is so much easier, safer and less fingerprint-ridden than using a wannabe-iPad glued to the dash.

What’s not quite as abundant is space. This feels like a young couple with a little ‘un car more than a full-on family car, but if that’s you, there’s more than enough space for kiddie seats in the back and assorted paraphernalia in the boot. Just don’t expect to be fitting proper adults in the rear seats for long distances, or ferrying the family pet away for the holidays.
