Audi A1, VW Polo & Skoda Fabia to benefit

AWD is the name of the game as far as Audi is concerned with their quattro models, and their upcoming A1 based on the Metroproject Quattro Concept will be no different as VW confirms their small-car platform which also includes the Polo and Skoda Fabia will get All-Wheel-Drive.

"The new small-car platform architecture includes an all-wheel drive option," Erich Schmitt, president of Seat said.

The new platform (codenamed: PQ25) has already made its first venture in the form of the Seat Ibiza which unfortunately will not get the AWD, the next generation Polo will follow later this year with the Audi A1 in late 2009.
