It has been 32 years since Audi has presented a new city car. The previous one was based on the VW Polo 1, which was named the Audi 50. The new car presented for 2010, designated the Audi A1, is once again based on the current Polo platform which is now in its 5th generation and which has continued to enjoy enormous success during all those years. After its launch at the Geneva International Motor Show 2010, the first deliveries of the Audi A1 will take place in September 2010.
The Juke is a new entry to the « crossover » category from the Japanese constructor Nissan. The design has been very controversial with journalists, who have called it eccentric. The Juke will be sold in Europe, North America and Japan using the same name for all markets. The vehicle is manufactured in the UK and Japan. It was inspired by the Qazana concept car which received an enthusiastic reception at the Geneva International Motor Show in 2009. It will join the Nissan range between the NOTE city car and the QUASHQAI crossover.
