The front part of the car is planned to suffer the most of the changes that are going to happen here. This means adding a horizontally matted new type of a grille which adds a higher tone of aggressiveness to the vehicle. The headlights are going to adopt a slender design which is not only going to make them stylish but also give more visibility when using them.
The fog lights are also incorporated to the font part and they are going to be positioned slightly higher to make them more efficient in their use. Finally, a huge Audi logo is placed at the front with massive air intakes for better brake cooling. And also the car uses the newly designed 19-inch alloy wheels also.
