2019 Audi A1 Scooped Playing In The Snow

Work continues on the 2019 Audi A1 as spy shooters have snapped the model undergoing cold weather testing.

Set to be unveiled later this year, the A1 has a familiar design but adopts a new front fascia with a wider grille that echoes recent models such as the A4 and A8. The five-door hatchback has also been equipped with new headlights and restyled mirrors which are now mounted to the A-pillar.

Moving further back, we can see designers kept the strong character lines and added more muscular rear fenders. The rear doors also appear longer than before and this suggests the A1 will grow in size and offer additional rear seat legroom.

The rear of the car is pretty evolutionary but the model features a new tailgate and wraparound taillights. We can also see a tailgate-mounted spoiler and a rakish rear window.

Little is known about the car but the cabin is expected to equipped with improved technology including an updated MMI infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. Drivers can also look forward to an optional digital instrument cluster with a 12.3-inch display.

Engine options remain unconfirmed but previous reports have suggested the model will be offered with an assortment of different powertrains including a turbocharged 1.0-liter three-cylinder that produces around 113 hp (84 kW). The A1 could also be equipped with a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder and a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that develops approximately 250 hp (186 kW) in the S1.

    Seems like we’ll see another Audi with a thick C-pillar and no quarter window after the rear doors, in a shape a bit like the one found in the Q2.
