The vehicle was unveiled in November last year.
The 2015 Audi A1 (facelift) was showcased in the Sportback guise at the 2015 Vienna Autoshow in Austria earlier this month. Unveiled last year in November, the facelift brings minor design updates, mechanical changes, and new engine options to the car.
On the outside, the Audi A1 facelift gets new headlamps and taillamps, refreshed grille, new paint choices, and added side skirts. Underneath it continues with the same drivetrain layout, offering front-wheel drive in basic models and all-wheel drive in the quattro-equipped versions.
There are a total of six engines available in international markets, with new additions made in the form of 3-cylinder units: a 1-litre petrol that makes 95 hp and a 90 hp-producing 1.4-litre diesel. The electro-mechanical power steering is new and the suspension is retuned and comes with adaptive damping, while the latest MMI infotainment system gets Wi-Fi hotspot functionality, too.
The Polo-based hatchback is not available in India, and the least expensive Audi available in the country is the A3 sedan, the first drive review of which can be found here.
