A prototype of the upcoming Audi A1 facelift has been spied winter testing in Sweden.

Audi introduced the hot S1 & S1 Sportback earlier this week at the Geneva Motor Show so it's easy to imagine how the lesser A1 facelift will look like. The moderately redesigned entry-level Audi will feature S1's headlights and taillights, along with A3-inspired front and rear bumpers. In typical Audi style, the changes will be subtle in the cabin as well but we expect to find more metallic accents.

It's the same story with the engine lineup which will be largely carried over, albeit there might be some minor tweaks to lower fuel consumption and CO2 emissions while improving performance.

The 2014 Audi A1 facelift will probably be introduced in October at the 2014 Paris Motor Show before going on sale late 2014 or early 2015.
