Audi is preparing to offer the Audi A1 hatchback a thorough refresh, with the all-new second-generation model being available in 2018– and our spy photographers have actually offered us a peek of how the new model will look. The 2018 Audi A1 will be bigger and more elegant than the existing car due to its new MQB A0 underpinnings and enhanced interior technology.
2018 Audi A1 Styling
The 2018 Audi A1 anticipated to borrow components of the larger Q2’s chunky, angular styling– as shown in our render, above. A set of more pointed headlights, contrasting trim pieces and a bigger grille flanked by 2 blocky air intakes need to help the upcoming car look significantly more aggressive than the rather rounded outbound model. The 2018 Audi A1 should feature a squarer rear end and flatter roofline than the old car– specifically in five-door Sportback guise– while the Q2’s funky scalloped doors might likewise make a look. New LED headlights and brakelights must help it look more upmarket, too.
2018 Audi A1 Interior
Rumour has it the 2018 Audi A1 may only be used as a five-door Sportback model. If Audi does choose to put a three-door version into production, it needs to still boast a more spacious cabin and more large boot than the outgoing three-door model. The present car’s a little old-fashioned interior ought to be given a thorough refresh. Its 6.5-inch infotainment screen could be ditched in favour of a bigger, more modern unit while a brand-new, simpler centre console might feature intense body-coloured trim pieces inspired by the Q2. Audi’s Virtual Cockpit screen– a high-definition screen that replaces conventional analogue instruments– ought to be used as an optional additional on the brand-new A1, too.
2018 Audi A1 Engines and Driving
There’s been no main word on exactly what engines will power the brand-new car however we anticipate 1.0-litre three-cylinder and 1.4-litre four-cylinder gas systems to be provided together with a 1.6-litre diesel engine borrowed from the outbound car. A new 1.5-litre gas, that’ll first see service in the upgraded VW Golf, could also be readily available when the 2018 Audi A1 goes on sale. A six-speed manual gearbox is expected to be fitted as standard while a seven-speed DSG automated need to be offered as an optional additional. A high-performance quattro-equipped S1, powered by a turbocharged 2.0-litre gas, need to also be offered however Audi’s not validated whether it’ll establish an even quicker RS1 variation.
2018 Audi A1 Price and Release Date
If Audi chooses to offer the 2018 Audi A1 in three-door form it’s anticipated to cost from roughly ₤ 15,000. Sportback versions could set you back approximately ₤ 500 more throughout the variety while top-spec models could hit you with a bill for more than ₤ 23,000 when it goes on sale in 2018.
