l The Audi A1 Sportback

The new Audi A1 Sportback is several millimeters wider and taller than its three-door sister model, offering 11 millimeters (0.43 in) more headroom and more comfortable access to the rear seat. The five-door model also has its own style when it comes to the color concept. The contrasting finish includes the entire roof and not just the roof arch.

The engine lineup offers a choice of four TFSI and three TDI units producing between 63 kW (86 hp) and 136 kW (185 hp). The 2.0 TDI with 105 kW (143 hp) will follow somewhat later. One particularly intriguing option among the gasoline engines is the 1.4 TFSI with 103 kW (140 hp), which will follow somewhat later. The included cylinder on demand system, which deactivates two cylinders under part load, gives the engine groundbreaking efficiency. The seven-speed S tronic is available as an option with three engines and comes standard with the top TFSI model. The dual-clutch transmission underscores the special position the model series occupies in its segment.

Engine lineup:

  • 1.2 TFSI with 63 kW (86 hp)
  • 1.4 TFSI with 90 kW (122 hp)
  • 1.4 TFSI with 103 kW (140 hp), somewhat later
  • 1.4 TFSI with 136 kW (185 hp)
  • 1.6 TDI with 66 kW (90 hp)
  • 1.6 TDI with 77 kW (105 hp)
  • 2.0 TFSI with 105 kW (143 hp), somewhat later

The five-door model comes standard with four seats, with a fifth seat available at no extra charge. There is an exhaustive list of customization options. The multimedia modules, which include the Bose surround sound system and MMI navigation plus, are particularly attractive. The high-end media center can be paired with the Bluetooth online car phone, which connectsthe A1 Sportback to the Internet. The integrated WLAN hotspot lets the passengers surf and e-mail.

The Audi A1 quattro
The dynamic A1 quattro, which Audi is producing in an exclusive series of just 333 units, takes its place at the head of its class. Its engine, a power-enhanced 2.0 TFSI, produces 188 kW (256 hp) and 350 Nm (258.15 lb-ft) of torque. A six-speed manual gearbox transfers the power to the quattro permanent all-wheel drive system, which uses a hydraulic multi-plate clutch. The small compact sprints to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in 5.7 seconds from a standing start and reaches a top speed of 245 km/h (152.24 mph).

The top model rolls on white 18-inch cast wheels in “Turbine” design and shod with 225/35 tires. Up front, black brake calipers clamp down onto internally vented discs. The electronic stabilization program (ESP) offers a sport mode and can also be switched off entirely.

The body of the Audi A1 quattro is finished predominantly in Glacier White metallic, with the roof in high-gloss black. The large air inlets in the front bumper, the two-tone roof spoiler and the exhaust system’s impressive tailpipes are particularly eye-catching. The headlights, wheels and back end sport red and black color accents.

Cool black dominates the interior. Special details include the leather S sport seats with high-gloss black seatbacks, the red tachometer dial, the contrasting red stitching and the aluminum gear knob. The Audi A1 quattro rolls off the assembly line with a complete range of equipment, including the Bose sound system, MMI navigation plus and the Bluetooth online car phone, which brings the Audi connect Internet services on board.

The equipment, data and prices specified in this document refer to the model range offered in Germany. Subject to change without notice; errors and omissions excepted.
