Packing Audi's best design features and technological features into a neat and powerful package, the new Audi A1 is an exciting addition to the Audi family.
The A1's subtle details combine to create an instantly striking figure on the road. The low, contoured body signifies exceptional performance and a riveting ride, with the straight-edged headlights and contrasting roofline backing up this fierce statement of intent. A range of up to 17-inch alloy wheels and countless Audi accessories from boot spoilers to exhaust trim are available to make your A1 extra special.
Inside, the A1 is just as impressive. The clean dashboard design and sculpted seats provide a comfortable and uncluttered driving environment, with a number of premium materials to choose from. Zeitgeist cloth in black or titanium grey gives the A1 chic interior style, while optional Milano leather upholstery takes the A1 firmly into the realm of luxury. Whichever options you choose, your A1 will have the Audi seal of approval everywhere you look.
Exceptional petrol and diesel engines give the Audi A1 plenty of efficient power under the bonnet. With 84.8bhp, the 1.2-litre TFSI petrol engine produces an impressive 55.4mpg and only emits 118g/km of CO2. The 1.6-litre TDI is even more powerful and economical, with 103.6bhp and achieving an average of 74.3mpg. It does all this while emitting just 99g/km of CO2 – an impressive feat.
The Audi S1 brings an energetic 'hot hatch' option to the range. It packs a punch, defying its sleek and compact size with thrilling power and performance. The car is light on its feet, with a level of speed and agility that all drivers can appreciate.
Sporty S' design informs the dynamic looks of the car. A tailored body kit adds highly polished twin exhaust pipes and a roof spoiler, as well as S1-branded black brake callipers and aluminium door mirror caps. Light and rain sensors activate the Xenon headlights and wipers automatically when needed, and LED daytime running lights help illuminate the way ahead.
Inside the S1, the gearstick and multifunction sports steering wheel are also specific to the S range. Easy-entry front seats make it simpler to settle in and get out, and they have built-in adjustable lumbar support. The split folding rear bench can be adjusted to create as much as 860 litres of space in the boot.
The high quality of the materials and finishes is evident from the leather-wrapped handbrake to the stainless steel pedals and aluminium trims. Partial-leather upholstery with vibrant red stitching brings yet more athletic touches to the car.
The Audi S1 Sportback adds even more racing touches and performance upgrades to what is already a very athletic car. This five-door hot hatchback delivers an incredible amount of enthusiasm in proportion to its compact size.
The Sportback blends into the rest of the S1 range with S' design elements: a roof spoiler, custom body kit, black brake callipers and twin exhaust pipes. The Xenon Plus headlights incorporate both automatic levelling and LED daytime running lights – and they activate automatically thanks to integrated light sensors.
A similar track-inspired atmosphere is created inside the S1 with stainless steel pedals and a leather-covered sports steering wheel. The partial-leather upholstery is embossed with the S1 logo and finished with a racing red stitch for added excitement. Built-in door armrests and lumbar support in the front seats combine to ensure your comfort.
One equipment level provides everything you and your passengers need for comfortable, entertaining journeys. The Driver's Information System is a standard feature in the S1 Sportback, presented on a 3.5-inch monochrome display. It brings you quick, voice-controlled access to the radio and telephone functions, as well as to the satellite navigation if you have it optionally fitted.
Other technologies within the car include Bluetooth® connectivity, an SD card reader to bring your own music to the cabin, and electronic climate control. The windscreen and windows are heat-insulated to maintain a cooler interior temperature in summer, and the heated windscreen is a helpful addition on colder days.
Audi S1 Sportback For Sale
The S1's potent engine is carried over to the Sportback, continuing to generate 370Nm of torque and 228bhp. On the way to a 155mph top speed, the climb to 60mph from a standstill takes no more than six seconds. This strong performance is underpinned by sports suspension.
Audi's quattro all-wheel drive system and seamless six-speed manual transmissions are other similarities which bring the S1 range together. In the Sportback, Audi drive select helps you select custom driving modes for all situations. The steering, throttle and gear changes are all subtly adapted, building on the car's dynamism.
When you take the S1 Sportback out on the road, you are accompanied by some of Audi's most intelligent safety and security technologies. Front, side and head airbags are fitted to provide tailored protection, and Electronic Stability Control keeps you on the right track. Should you need to brake suddenly, secondary braking support assists you – and adaptive brake lights warn the driver behind you as well.
