Both models will be based on the smallest version of the VW Group’s MQB platform under the latest SEAT Ibiza and VW Polo, which means that Audi Q1 will use the latest generation of VW Grop’s petrol and diesel engines, which include a 3-cylinder 1.0 liter and more powerful 1.5 liter turbo petrol engines, as well as 1.6 liter diesel.

As soon as it arrives on the market, it is likely to be possible to incorporate hybrid technology into it.
