Audi Q2 and Alfa Romeo Giulia To Launch In 2016
Audi boss Ulrich Hackenberg has recently revealed the brand’s upcoming compact crossover could sport the ‘Q2′ badge. This means the new ‘Q’ car could be marketed as a sportier offering than the future Q1.
Underpinned by the ‘MQB’ chassis likely to feature in future generations of the Volkswagen Polo and sharing components with the 2017 VW Tiguan, Audi intends the Q2 to be the first ‘true premium supermini-sized SUV.’ The price is likely to reflect this, placing the Q2 slightly beneath its larger Q3 sibling at between £18,000 and £20,000.

Alfa Romeo Giulia
To our knowledge, this is one of the first times a development prototype of the base Alfa Romeo Giulia has been recorded on the road.
This gives us a chance to see what the less flamboyant version of the Giulia QV will look like. It sports more sedate bumpers, smaller alloy wheels and even black door handles, which leads us to believe this is likely the cheapest version. It does have an elegant silhouette though.
Judging from the orange lights embedded in the headlamps, it could be a US-spec model. This and the noise of the engine contradict the video uploader’s claim that it is a diesel-powered Giulia.
As far as we know, the Giulia will not be offered with a diesel engine in the United States. It sounds more like a low-powered four-cylinder petrol. The regular version of the Alfa Romeo Giulia is expected to debut at the Geneva Motor Show next year and to arrive in dealerships in fall 2016.
