Audi A1 facelift 21

Our Euro spies have caught the facelifted Audi A1 undergoing testing – these shots divulge that the three-door hatch, due next year, does indeed get the sharper headlamps and tail lamps with new graphics you saw on the Audi S1 in Geneva.

The baby Audi now sports a redesigned front bumper that holds reshaped fog lamps. Front grille and rear bumper are slightly different, too – the former is now more angular; the latter incorporating slimmer reflectors on a more pronounced ‘lip’.

Some light tweaks are expected for the engines – reports speculate updated 1.2 and 1.4 TFSI units, plus a new 1.8 TFSI to replace the 185 PS twin-charged 1.4. Of course, there’ll be a five-door Sportback version too.
