The upcoming new Audi A1 has been spotted almost entirely uncamouflaged while testing in southern Spain. In spite of being one of the company’s older models, the existing A1 is still one of their bestsellers, so this new car represents something of a challenging second album. A whole new engine range is expected, consisting of a hybrid model and an efficiency RS1.
2019 Audi A1 Styling
The replacement A1 has actually been made to look bigger with bigger and lower headlights, more muscular bodywork and fancy-looking new lower grilles. These grilles, plus the rear spoiler and the two exhaust pipelines, hint the visualized car may be a stylish S-Line model. The headlights will be complete LED on a lot of models, not the yellow halogen lights on this pre-production development car, while the primary grille is bigger with styling information obtained from Audi’s SUV line-up.
Anticipate this new car to be longer and larger than the model it’ll replace. The rear doors look simpler to obtain into and the C-pillar (between the rear doors and rear windscreen) looks much bigger. There’s a strange chrome pinstripe down the side of this car, however it’s not likely this will make it to production.
2019 Audi A1 Interior
Audi might opt to push this new car further upmarket, far from its VW Group foundations. Mercedes has actually stuffed the new A-Class loaded with tech and elegant products to the point that it feels like a mini S-Class limo, so Audi might look to their larger and more costly models for interior inspiration.
This implies the A1 will get a much clearer and less cluttered control panel design, more leather alternatives and could feature restricted self-driving technology and gesture control for the new infotainment system. Anticipate a set eight-inch touchscreen to be standard on many models, and the alternative of a digital motorist’s screen that changes analogue dials.
The percentages of this prototype recommend that there will be much more traveler space in the back, and a more capacious boot behind. A criticism of the present car is that it’s extremely cramped for adults in the back seats (especially in the soon-to-be-discontinued three-door model), so this new car will be equally inviting as the Skoda Fabia or VW Polo.
2019 Audi A1 Engines and Driving
The A1’s engine range will be completely revamped– as you may anticipate, seeing as some engines are getting on a bit. Heartland 1.4-litre engines are set to be changed with an entry-level 1.0-litre three-cylinder unit with approximately 120hp and a more powerful 1.5-litre engine that you’ll already discover in the VW Golf and SEAT Ibiza. Both these powerplants will likely feature stop-start and cylinder deactivation to conserve fuel.
A 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine boasting a power output in the area of 200hp is rumoured to have been contributed to the range while, at the other end of the spectrum, a hybrid model is anticipated. From launch, a mild-hybrid version will be available to boost power and fuel economy, however will not be able to drive on electric power only. Four-wheel-drive, currently scheduled for the powerful S1, will be provided on other models throughout the line-up. All cars will be lighter, thanks to a new platform, which’ll benefit acceleration, braking, fuel economy and handling. The latter will likewise be enhanced with the addition of adaptive suspension.
2019 Audi A1 Price and Release Date
With this pre-production car looking so near being ended up, it’s likely that Audi will officially reveal the A1 in early 2019. The new model will go on sale later on in the year, with a cost of roughly ₤ 17,000 for the entry-level car.
