The 2018 Audi A1 will be larger and more elegant than the present car due to its new MQB A0 underpinnings and enhanced interior technology.
2018 Audi A1 Styling
The 2018 Audi A1 expected to obtain aspects of the bigger Q2’s chunky, angular styling– as shown in our render, above. A pair of more pointed headlights, contrasting trim pieces and a larger grille flanked by 2 blocky air intakes must help the upcoming car appearance significantly more aggressive than the rather rounded outbound model. The 2018 Audi A1 need to feature a squarer rear end and flatter roofline than the old car– specifically in five-door Sportback guise– while the Q2’s cool scalloped doors could also make a look. New LED headlights and brakelights should assist it look more upmarket, too.
2018 Audi A1 Interior
Rumour has it the 2018 Audi A1 may just be offered as a five-door Sportback model. If Audi does choose to put a three-door variation into production, it ought to still boast a more spacious cabin and more large boot than the outgoing three-door model. The current car’s a little old-fashioned interior ought to be given a thorough refresh. Its 6.5-inch infotainment screen could be dropped in favour of a larger, more modern-day unit while a new, easier centre console might feature brilliant body-coloured trim pieces influenced by the Q2. Audi’s Virtual Cockpit display screen– a high-definition screen that replaces traditional analogue instruments– should be used as an optional additional on the brand-new A1, too.
2018 Audi A1 Engines and Driving
There’s been no official word on what engines will power the brand-new car but we anticipate 1.0-litre three-cylinder and 1.4-litre four-cylinder petrol systems to be used alongside a 1.6-litre diesel engine borrowed from the outbound car. A new 1.5-litre gas, that’ll initially see service in the updated VW Golf, might likewise be readily available when the 2018 Audi A1 goes on sale. A six-speed manual gearbox is anticipated to be fitted as requirement while a seven-speed DSG automatic must be used as an optional additional. A high-performance quattro-equipped S1, powered by a turbocharged 2.0-litre fuel, must also be offered however Audi’s not verified whether it’ll develop an even much faster RS1 variation.
