After three years of service, the Audi A1 is about to get a major facelift. This couldn’t come at a better moment, as a lot of its competitors, specifically the Mini Cooper , has just come out with a new look.
This heavily camouflaged mule of the A1 gives us an indication of what to expect when all the wraps are taken out. Looking at the photos our spy photographer sent us, the facelifted A1 looks to carry a number of similar styling characteristics with the performance-oriented S1 . The front and rear lights in particular, appear to be similar in treatment to the S1 while, the front bumper, even if its not completely distinguishable, looks to be a new design with an updated grille and new fog lights.
Overall, minimal changes were given, compared to all these next-gen models that are popping up. It may only be three years since the A1 arrived, but is it at all possible that Audi begins thinking about working on a next-gen A1?
We’re hoping that’s the direction it takes, but for now, the 2015 Audi A1 will retain most of its old digs.
