The 2018 Audi A1 will be larger and more glamorous than the existing car due to its new MQB A0 foundations and improved 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 larger grille flanked by 2 blocky air intakes should 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 funky scalloped doors might likewise make a look. New LED headlights and brakelights need to help 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 choose to put a three-door version into production, it needs to still boast a more spacious cabin and more roomy boot than the outbound three-door model. The existing car’s somewhat old-fashioned interior should be provided an extensive 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 could feature intense body-coloured trim pieces influenced by the Q2. Audi’s Virtual Cockpit display screen– a high-definition screen that replaces traditional analogue instruments– ought to be offered as an optional extra on the brand-new A1, too.

A brand-new 1.5-litre petrol, that’ll initially see service in the updated VW Golf, could likewise be readily available when the 2018 Audi A1 goes on sale. A six-speed handbook transmission is anticipated to be fitted as requirement while a seven-speed DSG automated must be used as an optional extra. A high-performance quattro-equipped S1, powered by a turbocharged 2.0-litre petrol, need to likewise be used however Audi’s not validated whether it’ll establish an even faster RS1 variation.
