Audi A1 Concept Car - (Global)
September 16th, 2008
Audi is expected to unveil a new concept car at next months 2008 Paris Motor Show that should provide us with further hints to the styling of next years all new A1. The first concept for the upcoming A1 production model, the Metroproject Quattro, was shown at the Tokyo Motor Show in October 2007. Whilst the Metroproject Quattro was a two door hatch, the Paris car is believed to have an extra two doors.
Positioned below the segment C / small sized Audi A3, the A1 hatchback will go head to head with premium segment B / lights cars such as the MINI Cooper and the Alfa Romeo MiTo. A convertible version is also planned to enter production in late 2011. The A1 will sit at the bottom of the Audi family tree, and follows on from the premium priced baby A2 which sold in Europe from 1999 to 2005.
