New Audi A1 / A2 Rendering

It’s no secret that Audi is planning to substitute the unsuccessful A2 hatch with a premium supermini aimed straight at BMW’s MINI but also, at Alfa’s upcoming Junior hatch. Rumors have it the A1 or A2, will go on sale on both sides of the Atlantic sometime in 2009. Till then we’ll have to be contempt with renderings like this one from Andrea Rosati of Infomotori. Obviously inspired from the Shooting Brake concept, Rosati penned a dynamic hatch though we'll have to disagree with the front end which looks likes it suffers from “gigantism”.

Unlike the current all-aluminium A2, the new A1 / A2 will have a steel body and it’ll share many components with the VW Group’s B segment cars (VW Polo, Seat Ibiza & Skoda Fabia). Expect 1.4 TSI and 1.8 TSFI petrol engines as well as a full range of TDI diesel motors. Via: & Infomotori
