The vehicle looks very attractive and suggests a dynamic and thrilling ride when looked form the side. The model uses the two-door layout to its advantage and also adopts the “three-dimensional wave-shaped shoulder line,” which was introduced with the current model. This helps to emphasize to wheel arches but without really getting in your face about it. The front end of the car will be emphasized with the characteristic “Singleframe” grille that is a staple for Audi cars. This time it is going to be wider flatter. The headlights are sharper and positioned more angular the hood line is longer and the overhangs are shorter this time.
There are some newest additions when it comes to the lighting of the car. Besides reshaping the headlights they also included both regular LEDs and Matrix LEDs.
