Variety is the spice of life, which makes the Q2 one spicy pepper.
It will debut in Europe with six separate powertrain options.
Three of them are gas engines -- two four-cylinders and one tiny three-cylinder.
On the diesel site, there's a 1.6-liter unit, as well as two variants of a 2.0-liter.
The 2.0 motors come standard with a seven-speed, dual-clutch transmission, but the base transmission is a six-speed manual.
That expands to 37.1 cubic feet once the second row is folded down.
A head-up display is also optional equipment.
We checked it out at the Geneva Motor Show. The Q2 rides on Volkswagen's MQB platform, which underpins the VW Golf and the Audi A3.
There's no fancy, space-age material here -- its body panels are made of good old-fashioned steel.
With a curb weight under 2,700 pounds, even its littlest engine should provide the car with plenty of hustle.
Autonomous emergency braking is standard equipment on the Q2.
Buyers can also opt for adaptive cruise control with full speed control up to 40 mph, blind-sport monitor, automated parking, sensors and speed-limit recognition.
The Q2 arrives in Europe in the third quarter of 2016, and while it's unlikely to arrive in the US, it'd make for a great poor man's Evoque.
Front-wheel drive is standard, but its all-wheel drive is heavily front biased and won't send power rearward until the front wheels start to slip.
Inside, the Q2's rocking two separate screens -- a 12.3-inch HD screen that replaces the gauge cluster, and a redundant infotainment screen atop the dashboard in one of two available sizes.
Opting for the navigation screen earns you a Wi-Fi hotspot.
Buyers have the ability to upgrade to a 14-speaker Bang & Olufsen premium sound system, as well.
The Q2 promises 14.3 cubic feet of luggage space in the back.
