Audi wheel out prices of their baby Q2 crossover

Audi has announced Irish prices for its little Q2 crossover.
The diesels will start from €32,490 and I'm told the cars are on sale here this weekend.
There are five engines: three diesel and two petrol (they're holding off on prices for those at the moment).
The 1.6 TDI SE 110bhp looks like it will be the biggest seller and it's the one starting from €32,490.
There is also a 1.6 TDI S Line (from €35,790) and a range-topping 2.0 TDI 190bhp quattro S-tronic.
The two petrol models are the 1.0 TFSI and 1.4 TFSI.
Audi say their prices will be announced over the coming weeks.
There are two trim levels.
The SE has cruise control and smartphone interface, with the S-Line having LED headlights and sport suspension.
The Q2 is built on the same platform as the A3.
There isn't a mad gap in pricing as such, so it will be interesting to see if there is a swing to it from the hatchback. You never know in this SUV-craze era.
It is also taller (1.51m) and wider (1.79m) than the popular hatch, but shorter (4.19m) because of minimum overhangs.
Audi have claimed that its wheelbase of 2.6m means it will "fit in any parking space".
The boot takes 405 litres, but capacity rises to 1,050 litres with the rear bench seatback folded.
