Audi shares more details on the future A1, says different body versions will arrive


Audi is definitely keen on taking the fight to BMW in the premium segment and an important role will be given to the future A1 city car, which will be revealed in the following years. Talking with Car magazine in the UK, the sales director for the German company, Peter Schwarzbauer, revealed a few more details on what types of bodies we will see the A1 sport.

“We will start with the three-door version with several different engine variants,” Schwarzenbauer revealed to the English magazine. “Will we do further models? Look at what we do with the A3 range – we could something similar with the A1.”

This means that we might expect models from three to five-doors and even stations wagons, no to mention a convertible one. In terms of engine, rumors place the gas-powered 1.2-liter and 1.8-liter turbo motors in the future car, alongside the 1.6-liter TDI unit. We might also expect an electric version which will counter the similar versions of the Mini and the Smart. For enthusiasts, maybe a top of the range S1 might also be made.

Bear in mind that this is still speculation, so we can’t know for sure that the Ingolstadt manufacturer has planned for its entry-level city car. Stay tuned in the following months for more details as they will appear.
