New Audi A1 Allroad caught journalistsFebruary 6, 2019
A little more ground clearance and a few extra body panels distinguish the new product from the standard A1 hatchback.
The last time we saw “spy” photos of the prototype of the new Audi A1 Allroad was tested at the Nürburgring race track (Germany). Now the car is tested in cold weather, where its capabilities are tested on slippery snow-covered roads. Without a doubt, the new Audi from Audi received the Quattro all-wheel drive system.
How do we know that we are exactly the off-road version of the German hatchback A1? It’s simple, a little more ground clearance, and camouflage film at the very bottom of the car helps to hide wider side sills.
The camouflage on the wings also tells us about the changes in this part, although the changes are probably so small that it would be difficult to notice when compared in parallel with the regular version of the model. The Allroad version will get a slightly different front and rear bumper. Mounted floodlights are designed exclusively for testing, but it would be great to order them as an option.
We do not expect any major differences between the off-road hatchback and the regular A1 version, which was shown last year at the Paris Motor Show. In the same way, the 200-strong turbocharged Quartet, which is already familiar to us, should also be under the hood of the novelty.
At the end of this year, the start of sales of the Audi A1 is expected with an initial price of about 30,000 euros
