Longer and wider, the next generation of the 2020 Audi A1 will only have 5-door bodywork. On sale in October This Year.
Lots of meat in the fire-the 2018 will be a year full of news for the Audi, which after launching the A6 and A6 Avant is preparing the arrival of the SUV Q3, Q8 and the electric crossover e-tron Quattro.
Among the models expected this year there is also the second generation of the compact car Audi A1, rival of the Mini for dimensions, prices, and characteristics, which will be available with front or integral drive and also in high-performance sports versions, with prices to From about 18,500 euros.
The new model is conducting during this time the latest tests of development on the road and we appear very similar to what we will see in the car showrooms, as can be seen from the images published on the website of the German magazine Auto Motor und Sport.
An expected model, which I doubt will do worse than the current one on the market. A model that I have always considered an ugly duckling … Too many lines too forced in such a small volume. For an effect that is not harmonious at all. I saw the images already yesterday and in fact, the new larger forms as on the pole seem to donate somewhat to the model. I think it will come out very well, the price increase will have to be seen. I hope that the interiors will invent a little bit of the cards as happened on the A8 and A7 … a technological effect even on the small range like the new class A. I would not strive to support this to the Mini, which in itself boasts a handling very specific and almost unique among its competitors in terms of size and division. This will be more than anything else an embellished version of the already valid new Polo.
2020 Audi A1 Interior
the second edition of the Audi A1 will be based on the platform MQB-A0, the same of the new Seat Ibiza and Volkswagen Polo, which allowed the technicians of the German manufacturer to revise the external proportions of the bodywork: according to Indiscretions the 2020 Audi A1 will be longer by almost 7 cm (404 cm) compared to the edition today for sale, wider than 2 cm and with a distance between the front and rear wheels plus 9 cm.
This for the benefit of the space, not only for the passengers but also for the things: the trunk, in fact, should grow by 70 liters and reach the 350. It will also benefit the style, since, judging from the images, the new Audi A1 is more “muscular” than today’s. The utility can only be ordered with the 5-door bodywork, it will have new driving assistance technologies and three-cylinder engines, such as the 1.0 TFSI gasoline, in addition to the four Cylinders 1.4 TFSI and diesel 1.6 TDI.
