New Audi A1 Teases Its Refreshed Styling While Wearing S Line Duds

Audi has brought the second generation A1 forward once again, after releasing yet another teaser on its social media channels.

The one-second gif previews its exterior design this time, revealing a yellow exterior, five-spoke rims with a Y pattern, red brake calipers and side sill extension with a black look. Adorning the front fenders are the ‘S Line’ badges, which suggest that the car is wearing some fancy clothes. Also visible, in part, are the new headlights, likely LEDs.

Accompanying the teaser is a short caption that says: “As individual as you – fit your all new Audi A1 with rims, roof and spoilers in different colors”. This refers to the numerous personalization options that will be available for customers, a common thing for certain vehicles in the supermini segment, including the MINI and DS3.

Unfortunately, Audi doesn’t say when the new generation A1 will be unveiled. However, given the recent teasers released, we won’t be surprised if the company decides to pull the cover off in the very near future, like say during a special event in Barcelona.

In addition to an entirely new design, the 2019 Audi A1 is underpinned by the MQB A0 platform of the latest Volkswagen Polo. This means that it will have a slightly larger footprint and will be fitted with a host of new technologies.

More importantly, adopting the VW Group-developed architecture will open up the possibility of adding new powertrains, with reports pointing towards a 1.0-liter three-cylinder petrol, making 113hp, and a 1.5-liter unit rated at 148hp.

The 1.6-liter diesel could be replaced by a CNG option, or an electrified model (or both), and enthusiasts should be glad to learn that the S1 version will live on, with some 250 horsepower from a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine.

    …”given the recent teasers released, we won’t be surprised if” the new Audi A1 shall be fabricated in Barcelona
    and thankfully
    “the 2019 Audi A1 is underpinned by the MQB A0 platform of the latest Volkswagen Polo” rather than the one MQB0 platform debuted in the latest SEAT Ibiza, coz you know in the latter case it would be insufficient for teasing the Audi A1.
    LOL marketing at its best
