Next Audi A1 to eclipse Mini

Next Audi A1 to eclipse Mini

Sources claim that the upcoming second-generation Audi A1 will aim to eclipse the latest Mini. Audi plans to underpin the car with the MQB AO architecture that combines aluminium with hot-formed steel. This platform is already in use by the A3, so while production costs will drop, it should grow substantially in size since the wheelbase itself is longer by 94mm. 

Reports suggest that the new A1’s suspension system will be heavily reworked and will offer adaptive damping control as an option. Unlike the first-generation A1 which had four-wheel drive only on the top-end variant, the new car will offer a Quattro system over a wider range of motors.

This brings us to the engines. A new entry-level 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbocharged petrol motor capable of up to 113bhp will be closely followed by a 1.5-litre four-cylinder turbo petrol with 148bhp on tap. A range-topper S1 will eventually join the line-up at a later time with a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo petrol engine that makes up to 250bhp.

From the spy shots of the next-gen A1, we know that the design highlights include a flatter bonnet and a wider grille. However, the biggest change is that it will now only be available in a five-door body style. The second-generation A1 will roll out of the Seat (VW group brand) production facility in Spain and should hit roads in the first half of 2018.
