The Audi Q2 is being teased again, this time in a short video.

Expected to debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show in early March, the Audi Q2 will be the German automaker’s newest compact crossover built on the company’s versatile MQB platform. Although we don’t get a good look at the Audi Q2 in the teaser video, it appears that Audi wants to prove that it will be fully capable of going off-road.

Entry-level models of the new Q2 are expected to get front-wheel drive as standard, while quattro all-wheel-drive will be offered further up the model range. Once it debuts, we should be looking at a crossover that is noticeably shorter than the Q3 and will likely be offered as a five-door model only.
