New details of the next-generation of Audi A2 revealed

Article by Christian A., on August 25, 2010

Almost all of the auto manufacturers of Europe are concentrating on the latest generation of highly compact vehicles to confront the stringent emissions requirement scheduled to take effect in the next few years, and Audi is one of the most vigorous in the industry. Audi is said to be toiling on a small number of the latest versions which are all ranked beneath the A3, as its present entry-level vehicle.

A production variant of the A1 Metroproject concept will be included in these new models, which will possibly be available in an assortment of arrangements including 3 and 5-door versions, plus a Sportback, cabrio, and a hybrid.

Also, there will be an Audi variant of VW's latest minicar, which will be patterned on an identical NSF platform observed in the up! concept vehicle. Lastly, the most current information shows that there will be an introduction of an heir to the poor-selling A2 compact. Audi will open an athletic hatchback with a high roof structure sometime in 2014, according to AutoBild.

Of course, Audi is yet to substantiate the statement but Rupert Stadler, Audi CEO, has earlier said that the firm is "looking at different scenarios including a new A2." The initial version employed costly aluminum construction, which basically priced it out of the small vehicle category and led to its market disappointment.

For the latest copy, Audi will share parts with sister-firm VW in an attempt to maintain low costs. This signifies that it will probably share auto parts with the future generation Polo, together with several current compact 3-cylinder gasoline and diesel powerhouses. There is likelihood that Audi may open a variant with an electric motor propelling the rear axle and a gas engine running the front to produce a version of quattro AWD.
