The Audi Q2 1.4 TSI 150 is more sporty and carries more status.The Ateca 1.4 TSI 150 is taller, perhaps more comfortable, and more commodious. They are both surprisingly quick with 0-60mph times under 8.5 seconds.

Very comfortable and refined with impressive ride quality. Lots of room for those in the back along with a large boot. Good value for money. 1.6 TDI should prove very economical. Five star Euro NCAP rating.
Style-led crossover. High seating position. Feels like a high quality car. Scope for personalisation. Good sized boot. Works surprisingly well with 1.0 TFSI engine.
