Audi Q2 vs MINI Countryman vs Volvo V40 XC – which is the best small SUV? | Head2Head

Everyone loves a posh badge on their car. And small SUVs? So hot right now. It stands to reason, then, that the Audi Q2, the MINI Countryman and the Volvo V40 Cross Country are considered some of the must-have new cars on sale today. But which should you choose? I put the three head-to-head in my in depth review which covers styling, interior design, practicality, driving and value for money.

All the way through you criticise the Audi, mini was rated better except for fuel economy. You haven’t been paid by Audi now have you?

Mini is a Joke expansive. Audi is a Polo expansive, Volvo has personality.

I know you have been doing this for many years Matt but how on earth you can say the Mini is ugly compared to those other 2 cars is beyond me.I find it the best looking out of them.I know in the end its all a matter of taste but honestly can you say the Audi or Volvo are better looking? Are we looking at the same cars mate?The styling of the other 2 i find very bland to say the least.

Volvo: Most expensive and came last. Looks average.
Mini: Middle and came 2nd place. Looks good.
Audi: Cheapest and came 1st. Looks weird.

I have the Volvo V40 R-Design PRO on D4 Suspension lowered by 8MM the car is a beast, i tried mini`s and been in Q2`s but didnt find them practical, the seats speak for themselves plus a lot of design has gone into these cars especially with thor hammer light design makes these so much great visability at night time driving.

I went for the Theoretical light design and Full LED for the light pack, you just dont feel like your in a volvo!!

MINI is that brand in the autoworld which has it’s takers even before the review starts… And they don’t care even if it comes in the last position . They will still buy them. Love them ❤️

Mini the best all rounder, more space, more power, more fun to drive.. the interiors Audi looks sleek and refined, mini more sporty. Imo Mini wins this hands down.
