The 2018 Audi A1 will be bigger and more glamorous than the current car due to its new MQB A0 underpinnings 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 displayed in our render, above. A set of more pointed headlights, contrasting trim pieces and a bigger grille flanked by two boxy air intakes must assist the approaching car look significantly more aggressive than the rather rounded outgoing model. The 2018 Audi A1 should feature a squarer rear end and flatter roofline than the old car– especially in five-door Sportback guise– while the Q2’s cool scalloped doors could likewise make an appearance. New LED headlights and brakelights need to assist it look more upmarket, too.
2018 Audi A1 Interior
Rumour has it the 2018 Audi A1 may only be used as a five-door Sportback model. If Audi does choose to put a three-door variation into production, it should still boast a more spacious cabin and more roomy boot than the outgoing three-door model. The present car’s a little old-fashioned interior should be given a comprehensive refresh. Its 6.5-inch infotainment screen could be dumped in favour of a larger, more modern-day unit while a new, easier centre console might feature bright body-coloured trim pieces motivated by the Q2. Audi’s Virtual Cockpit display– 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 main word on exactly what engines will power the new car but we expect 1.0-litre three-cylinder and 1.4-litre four-cylinder gas units to be offered along with a 1.6-litre diesel motor obtained from the outgoing car. A new 1.5-litre gas, that’ll first see service in the updated VW Golf, might also be offered when the 2018 Audi A1 goes on sale. A six-speed handbook gearbox is expected to be fitted as requirement while a seven-speed DSG automatic ought to be used as an optional additional. A high-performance quattro-equipped S1, powered by a turbocharged 2.0-litre gas, ought to likewise be offered but Audi’s not verified whether it’ll establish an even quicker RS1 variation.
