2018 Audi A1
Audi is preparing to give the Audi A1 hatchback an extensive refresh, with the all-new second-generation model can be found in 2018– and our spy professional photographers have actually offered us a look of how the new model will look. The 2018 Audi A1 will be bigger and more luxurious than the existing car due to its brand-new MQB A0 foundations and enhanced interior technology.
2018 Audi A1 Styling
The 2018 Audi A1 expected to borrow components of the bigger 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 two blocky air intakes ought to assist the approaching car appearance visibly more aggressive than the rather rounded outgoing model. The 2018 Audi A1 must feature a squarer rear end and flatter roofline than the old car– particularly in five-door Sportback guise– while the Q2’s cool scalloped doors might also make an appearance. New LED headlights and brakelights ought to assist it look more upmarket, too.
2018 Audi A1 Interior
Rumour has it the 2018 Audi A1 might only be offered as a five-door Sportback model. If Audi does decide to put a three-door version into production, it should still boast a more roomy cabin and more roomy boot than the outgoing three-door model. The existing car’s somewhat old-fashioned interior must be provided a thorough refresh. Its 6.5-inch infotainment screen might be dumped in favour of a bigger, more modern unit while a brand-new, easier centre console might feature intense body-coloured trim pieces influenced by the Q2. Audi’s Virtual Cockpit screen– a high-definition screen that changes conventional analogue instruments– need to be provided as an optional extra on the brand-new A1, too.

There’s been no official word on exactly what engines will power the 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 motor obtained from the outgoing car. A new 1.5-litre petrol, 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 handbook gearbox is anticipated to be fitted as requirement 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 fuel, need to also be provided but Audi’s not validated whether it’ll establish an even quicker RS1 variation.
