Rumors began brewing in April of a baby SUV from Audi, sporting the Q2 model designation to sit under the Q3 (pictured above) in the German automaker’s SUV lineup.

Now, we are hearing word that Audi will officially announce the Q2 at the Paris Motor Show alongside a concept model with hopes of launching the vehicle in 2015. The Q2 will compete with models such as the MINI Countryman, sporting raised seating, luxurious interior, and Audi’s typical selection of gasoline and diesel powerplants.

What we do know about the Q2 is that it will be based on the Volkswagen Group’s new MQB architecture, which currently can be seen on the recently launched A3 model and will also be used for the next-generation Q3 in 2017. What we can expect to see however, is a Q2 in concept form at the Paris Motor Show, potentially sporting a three-door body style though that will clearly not make it into production.

The production model is scheduled to debut at the 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show, which is still a ways off, but it’s safe to assume a more practical, five-door Q2 will be shown off by the German automaker.
