2019 Audi A1 spy shots and video

Engineers from Audi are out testing prototypes for a new generation of the A1 subcompact hatchback.

The current A1 debuted in 2010 and sadly was never offered in the United States. We’re afraid there’s also little chance we’ll see the redesigned model as Audi has ruled out launching anything smaller than the A3 in these parts. (That’s why we also miss out on the Q2 SUV.)

Compared to the current A1, the redesigned model skips the bubble shape in favor of a more conventional hatchback design. The wheelbase has also been stretched in order to up space in the cabin.
