2018 Audi A1 | All-New

2018 Audi A1 should be a successor of large SUV made by this manufacturer, called Q2, but in a smaller size and with many improvements. That is surprising for the manufacturer as Audi, knowing how models they have been making in past years. As they usually make large and luxury cars, having one of these cute and small cars could be an interesting change. On the other hand, it is a successor of famous car, which had successful selling seasons in past years, so we should not be surprised with the decision to debut the car with the similarities with that popular car.

Exterior

The outside of 2018 Audi A1 reminds on small cars like Mini Cooper, which supports different color of the roof, rounded egg-like shape, and flat truck door, as an extension of a flat roof. The rear end has modernized rear lights, although there is no that much edge and sharpens lines as on the previous model and surely there is no curves and lines on the sides of the car. The front end is also similar to small cars, almost flat with thin, irregular shaped lights. The feeling of luxury and modernity provides massive gridded front grille and rounded hood line with perfectly incorporated air intakes on the sides of the bumper.

It was tough to describing the cabin in 2018 Audi A1 when we have actually not seen how it looks like. It is for sure that it will be the same as on predecessor, Q2, in two colors and two optional materials, quality fabric and leather in higher trims. In term of technology, we expect special Audi’s Virtual Cockpit display and at least 6.5-inches diagonal of the touchscreen in the middle of the dashboard. Some photos suggest that there will be a luxury combination of two colors with chromatic details.

Engine

Even though 2018 Audi A1 will have the small 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine in the base model, we should expect strongest one in higher trims, and that means 1.4-liter and 1.6-liter ones. If we know that current model has the same options that should not be a big surprise. Besides that, there could be offered VW Golf’s 1.5-liter petrol engine as well as the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine. In term of the transmission, there are optional both six and seven-speed automatic transmissions.

2018 Audi A1 Price

We never expect the low price for cars which made Audi, but this time price can beat the competition even in a lower class of cars. According to manufacturer’s predictions, it could be $19,500 but can go over $30,000.
