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.
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.
