Road Tax is based upon the CO2 emissions of the vehicle and is split into 13 bands from A to M. The higher the letter the greater the cost of tax paid to drive the vehicle on public roads. In addition to the road tax detailed below, any vehicle that had a manufacturers retail price in excess of £40,000 when first sold, attracts a road tax supplement of an additional £310 per year. This is charged until the vehicle is 6 years old.

Nobody loves a niche more than Audi, so it's hardly a surprise to find it entering the small crossover market with the Q2. It's the first compact SUV from the marque to come with an even number, which heralds a more youthful, funky style. The German firm reckons the Q2 is small but perfectly formed. Is it? Let's find out at the wheel of the 1.4 TFSI variant.
SUVs have become a core part of Audi's line-up, with the Q3, 5 and 7 models offering a Russian doll range to customers depending on the size of car they need. With the Q2, Audi has taken a different approach and it's much more about fun and style instead of being too concerned with practicality. This puts Audi into unchartered territory when it comes to rivals, but it hopes the classy appeal of those four rings on the bonnet will convince buyers to choose it over more mainstream brands. The compact Q2 makes no bones about the fact it's not going to carry you over mountains and through forests. It's very much a crossover that's looking to snipe sales from many of its mainstream rivals with the attraction of its quality. Audi thinks that many of those people will want this efficient 1.4 TFSI petrol variant.
Sitting a little shorter, narrower and taller than the A3 hatch it's based on, the Q2 delivers a similar driving experience coupled to the raised driving position that's so much a part of the appeal of crossovers. Despite that higher seating, the Q2 resists lean in corners very well on the standard 'Dynamic suspension'. With the 'S line' models, you have the no-cost option to upgrade to 'Sports suspension', which firms things up for greater cornering grip, but it does make the ride a little too stiff for our taste. All versions have electric power steering with variable assistance, so turning the wheel at lower speeds is easy when parking but more heft is added as the car gains pace. Further refinement to the driving experience is provided by Audi's 'Drive Select' system that lets you choose from 'Comfort', 'Auto', 'Dynamic' and 'Efficiency' settings. Each of these choices tailors the way the helm, gearbox and accelerator pedal react to the driver's inputs. All engines except the entry-point petrol unit can be specified with either a six-speed manual or seven-speed dual-clutch 'S tronic' auto we tried. Audi says the 1.4-litre TFSI petrol variant will be the best seller and it's easy to see why, with its blend of pace and refinement. From rest to 62mph takes 8.5 seconds. The 2.0-litre turbo petrol variant is of course swifter, but its extra power adds little to the overall driving experience, though some will be attracted by its near-hot hatch performance.
The Q2 is certainly a departure from Audi's usual clean-cut sleek looks and this is absolutely the intended purpose of its styling. Aimed at younger buyers, this compact SUV has to stand out against some very capable rivals. When you're behind the wheel, the driving position is more like that of one of Audi's saloon models rather than a Q5 or Q7. You're placed low in the car to give a sportier feel yet you still have that commanding view ahead that so many people love about crossovers. Taller drivers may find the roof comes quite close to the top of their head, but there's still plenty of room for all shapes and sizes. In the rear, there's reasonable space for legs, shoulders and head. Two adults can be accommodated comfortably, though if you're taller than six feet, you might prefer the front seats. And lastly, what's the boot like for space? You might think it's going to be cramped as the Q2 is shorter than an A3, but you'll be pleasantly surprised to hear it can swallow 405-litres of luggage with the back seats in place, which is more than its hatchback sister. The floor has two height settings, so you can have maximum space but with a substantial drop to the cargo floor or the higher setting that places the adjustable panel flush with the sill.
Audi has to tread very carefully with the Q2 as its pricing pitches it somewhere between the firm's A1 supermini and the A3 small hatch. Of course, both of those are premium offerings within their segments and the same is true of this small SUV model. The price structure reflects this and the Q2 is a little dearer than some rivals but avoids stomping on the toes of its Q3 big brother. So, the range kicks off with the 1.0-litre TFSI turbo petrol-powered versions at a shade over £20,000 that comes with a six-speed manual gearbox only. To move up to the 1.4 TFSI motor we tried will cost you £2,000 more, while adding the seven-speed 'S tronic' dual-clutch auto 'box will add a further £1600 to the final bill. As for equipment, well all models get alloy wheels of at least 16-inches in size, electrically adjusted door mirrors and chrome-plated exhaust tips. Inside, you can expect to find a three-spoke steering wheel that has remote controls for the stereo and hands-free phone connection. Air conditioning keeps the cabin at your desired temperature, while the 'MMI Radio Plus' with seven inch colour screen takes care of the infotainment. It's operated by a rotary controller just behind the gear lever and lets you hook up your smartphone to access calls, music and selected apps. There's also voice control, Bluetooth and DAB digital radio, as well as the 'Audi Music Interface' to connect to an Apple iPod or iPhone.
There's no doubt a lot of people will be drawn to the Q2 for its looks and the way it drives, but the numbers still have to stack up if this Audi is going to appeal to as many buyers as possible. So, fuel consumption is a key consideration. Let's look at the engine we tried, the 1.4 TFSI turbo petrol unit that's also the best seller in the range. This 150hp powerplant delivers a best of 54.3mpg combined when attached to the 'S tronic' twin-clutch seven-cog gearbox like the one that featured on our testcar. Go for the six-speed manual and you'll see 51.4mpg. Depreciation figures should be as strong as they usually are on Audi models. It's a little disappointing though, that the brand sticks to its usual 60,000 mile limit on the three year warranty. Optional extra-cost packages can extend the cover to either four or five years. Pre-paid servicing packages are also available.

PCP (Personal Contract Purchase) a simple cost effective way to buy your new or nearly new
You choose the car, the deposit, how long you want the contract to run for and the mileage you intend to do. You will then receive a quote for fixed cost motoring for the length of the contract. At the end of the contract you have a choice to either buy the car outright for an agreed lump sum (the GFV or final balloon payment), or hand the vehicle back to the lender.
Hire Purchase allows you to take ownership of a car once all payments are made.
This is one of the most popular methods to buy a new vehicle. You pay an initial deposit, then pay off the balance in monthly payments over an agreed period of time, when the payments are complete the car is yours.
One of the main benefits with Hire Purchase is the ability to buy a high value vehicle on
Hire Purchase allows you to tailor your finance package as deposit, length of time and monthly payments are all flexible.
Personal contract hire is very similar to normal contract hire, but is exclusively for
private individuals. This
is one of the most common form of leasing.
With a personal contract hire agreement you take control of a car for a contractual period – usually referred to as the ‘lease period’. You will make fixed monthly payments for the duration of the contract – when the contract expires you will simply return the car and take out a new personal contract hire lease. PCH means you never have to worry about resale values of your car.
