New A2?

My answer is no. It's just a new entry level Audi.

So if it sits below the A1, it will be the A0?

Is it my arse.  They should just start making the old one again, suitably tweaked and primped.

And I am about 55% serious on that.

I've said this before. Old one with leccy motor, range extender and some touch screen and TFT lovelyness would be perfect.

Exactly. It was so far ahead of its time that the world has nearly caught up with it now. People will now pay big money for "premium" small cars whereas they would not when the A2 was launched.

Ugly little thing isn't it?

Four rings on the grille is a sure route to sales success though.

Is it Arse.

An Audi based on the Up! platform makes complete sense, I can see why they want to build this Audi A0.3333r, but as an A2 replacement no chance, and to be fair it's symptomatic of AutoCar's lazy and poor journalism; I bought the mag this week to read the DS4 Crossback road test and my moon boots are still warm, poor and lazy, and a waste of cash.

Totally agree, I've had the same thoughts for a few years and wish a little side project was carried out at audi and displayed just for fun (or production).

Take original A2..... Re-engineer mechanicals with latest engine, brakes, suspension etc. Maybe electric, but chassis would probably leave it totally compromised.

Replace interior with latest fancy audi look and virtual cockpit etc.

Exterior, just replace lights with new led units, maybe give the grille a modern audi face and some new alloys.

But essentially, leave the exterior as it is, just everything is updated.

I really wish Audi had stuck it out with the original A2. With the way the market has gone, they could have had another TT type Audi trademark design in a relevant city car segment.

Done.
