The Audi A1 wasn't exactly a boffo model, and when you look at what it has to offer analyzed to the value label, it's simple to understand why. Premium automobiles in this tiny segment tend to be a rigid trade, but the Ingolstadt manufacturer is determined to keep its small model going.
That's probably because none of its direct opponents have an akin supplying in their rolls, even though things can be victimizing. The Series 1 tight may be the entry component in the BMW extent, but let's not forget the Germen also have the MINI name in their case, and the Cooper looks a direct A1 rival if we've ever perceived one.
It's a tiny more complicated for Mercedes-Benz with the A-Class acting as the same component extremity at the debased extremity as the Series 1. However, Daimler also has a disparate brand to deal with the small segments, and that's the astute. The brand-new forfour is a bit of an oddball, but like the MINI, it offers something the A1 lacks funkiness.
Indeed, the A1 always were as nothing more than the tiny Audi, the thick process of the brand's attribute. Unlike its contestants, it didn't transport anything brand-new to the table, and since it outgo Volkswagen Golf money, it really gave latent consumers a lot to think about. Nevertheless, Audi is now try-out the model's upcoming aeon, and even though the automobile is heavily disguised, there are a few things that stand out immediately. Most importantly, its magnitude. The 2018 A1 will be large than the current model, which is welcome information since as it stands now, it is more incommodious even than the Volkswagen Polo. Apart from that, we can also point the foreseeable design changes conveyed to transport the A1 in formation with the rest of the contemporary Audi roll.
You got the hexagonal radiator opening, the thin headlights and the increased breeze holes at the front, and a set of Evoque-esque taillamps at the rear. Audi is rumored to forego the three-door model in kindness of the five-door one that moved the Sportback appellation. It is accepted the German manufacturer might be intending a brand-new automobile that will position under the A1, hence the increased magnitude and more attention to the pragmatic side.
The varied MQB platform will hold the brand-new A1 in what is likely to be the abbreviated feasible use of its talents. That means we can expect a whole extent of motors varying from the 1.0-liter three-cylinder fuel turbo unit to 1.6-liter four-cylinder TDI. 2.0-liter motors could also be met, RS1 model with the Golf GTI motor is always on the cards. Expect Audi to include a plug-in hybrid as well, even though there's no word of a fully-electric model for the A1 just yet.
