It has been almost a year since we had the 2019 Audi A1 test in public, and to be honest, the current batch of photos is not much different from the original photos. The car or in this case, the cars are seen in a very bright white snow scenery, wearing aggressive winter tires and LED light bars for what we suspect is off-road testing in very cold conditions.
The new generation Audi A1 test mules were seen with aggressive snow tires and LED bar lights mounted on the grille, which makes sense given the gravity of the terrain. The prototype models are also seen with an antenna placed on the roof, perhaps a part of some test equipment. As for the production-ready parts, the car is seen with a pair of slimmer headlights, Audi’s signature single-frame grille, large air intakes at both ends and elegant central ventilation. There is not much to comment on the style courtesy of heavy camouflage, but we see a new set of alloy wheels and ORVMs on the sides. At the rear, the car seems to have new, brighter LED taillights, a rear wiper, and a small roof-mounted spoiler.
The new-generation 2019 Audi A1 is based on a modified version of the MQB platform, which is also the basis of the new generation Volkswagen Polo, which has allowed it to expand and offer a slightly better cabin. great. As for the cabin, it should be equipped with the latest Audi technology, including the 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, as well as the upscale interior and comfortable upholstery.
Powertrains will include 3- and 4-cylinder units, the most powerful version being an S1 that can overshadow the 231 horsepower of the S1 current. An even more powerful RS 1 Audi Sport is possible given the desire of the performance division to expand its offer. In the transmission department, buyers should be able to choose from 6-speed manual gearboxes and 7-speed dual clutch gearboxes. We expect Audi to unveil the new A1 completely in the first half of 2018.
