Audi releases first sketches of the the new A1

The boffins at CAR magazine over in the UK have managed to procure the first official images of the upcoming Audi A1. The A1 will be Audi's new entry level model that will be built in the plant in Belgium that they recently took over from Volkswagen. As a premium brand within the VW group, Audi's new small car will take on BMW's MINI rather than going for cheaper models like the VW Polo and Opel Corsa.

Base models will be front wheel drive and use VW's direct injected TFSI engines ranging from 65 to 170hp. Diesels will also play a prominent role with 75 to 130hp. As with other Audi models Quattro all-wheel drive will be optional and three and five door hatches along with a two door coupe and convertible are expected. Head over to CAR for more images and details.
