The exterior design of the most recent model will receive some slight modifications. First of all, we can expect this model in few variations: convertible car, 5-entrance sport back, avant and several sedans. Furthermore, the whole exterior design will be more aggressive than before. The front fascia will be especially appealing and here is located beautifully designed front grille. This grille will be a bit different than before but nothing too much notable. We can expect the Audi logo in the middle. Some rumors suggest that the headlights will be also changed. For sure, there will be LED technology, just like as before.
Some minor modifications are provided when it comes to the front bumper as well. Also, the rear bumper will receive some tweaks. The front bumper of this model will be paired with the large air vents and LED fog lights. At the sides, this model will ride on large aluminum wheels, but exact size is not known yet.
