The Audi A1, the premium car among the small compacts, has been a major success following its market debut. And now Audi is presenting the new top version - the A1 1.4 TFSI (136 kW). Its taut chassis provides sporty handling, while the dual-charged 1.4 TFSI delivers 136 kW (185 hp) of power and the S tronic dual-clutch transmission comes standard. The A1 1.4 TFSI (136 kW) also impresses with groundbreaking efficiency, consuming on average just 5.9 liters of fuel per 100 km (39.87 US mpg), which corresponds to CO2 emissions of just 139 g/km (223.70 g/mile) (provisional figures).

The A1 1.4 TFSI (136 kW) has a confident appearance. The single-frame grille, the striking roof arch, the flat C-pillar, the wrap-around engine hood and luggage hatch and the tornado line show its sporty potential even when it is at a standstill.

The A1 1.4 TFSI (136 kW) has a compact, lightweight engine with four valves per cylinder. This produces an impressive 136 kW (185 hp) and 250 Nm (184.39 lb-ft) of torque. The sprint from zero to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) takes just 6.9 seconds, and the top speed is 227 km/h (141.05 mph) (performance figures are provisional).

The spontaneous response and high propulsive power, even at high speeds, are achieved thanks to its special concept - a combination of supercharger and turbocharger.

The supercharger springs into action at 1,500 rpm and in most situations is disengaged at 2,400 rpm. From 3,500 rpm at the latest, the turbocharger does all the work. Because it doesn't have to do as much work at the low end of the rev range, the developers were able to use a large turbo and design it for high efficiency.

The 1.4 TFSI combines efficiency and dynamics. It uses on average just 5.9 liters of fuel per 100 km (39.87 US mpg) and emits 139 g CO2 per km (223.7 g/mile) (consumption figures are provisional). These excellent numbers are the product of the FSI concept, the dual charging system and also technologies from the modular efficiency platform.

The standard seven-speed S tronic transmission directs the power of the 1.4 TFSI to the front wheels. The high-end transmission is very short and light. The seven-speed S tronic is composed of two transmission structures which are operated by two multi-plate clutches. The shifting process takes place in just a few hundredths of a second and with no detectable interruption of pulling power. The tall seventh gear reduces fuel consumption.

The McPherson construction at the front and the torsion-beam rear suspension with separate springs and dampers form the basis for agile handling.

The Audi A1 1.4 TFSI (136 kW) turns in spontaneously, takes corners quickly and stably, and accelerates out of them with sure-footed grip. The brakes have the potent performance under control. The ventilated front discs measure 288 millimeters (11.34 in) in diameter.

Another specialty that comes standard for the chassis is the ESP stabilization program with electronic limited slip differential. When the system detects an impending loss of traction at the inside wheel during fast cornering, it initiates very brief braking of that wheel.

There is a comprehensive range of equipment. The safety package comprises two front airbags, thorax/pelvic side airbags and curtain head airbags. Belt tensioners and belt force limiters plus the Audi integral headrest system round out the package. Isofix child seat anchor points in the rear are standard.

Many of the options come directly from the luxury class. These are the xenon plus headlights with LED daytime running lights, the LED tail lights, the LED interior lighting package, the high-beam assistant, the light and rain sensor, the panoramic sunroof, the convenience key with the start-stop button, two navigation systems and a 465 watt Bose surround sound system with 14 speakers. Finally, manual and automatic air conditioning systems plus heated front seats are optionally available.

The Audi A1 1.4 TFSI (136 kW) will be launched toward the end of the year at a price of €24,250. In addition to S tronic, its standard specification contains a wide range of highlights: Ambition equipment line, 17-inch wheels, S line exterior package, manual air conditioning, additional mono.pur colored interior elements, black headlining and the LED interior light package.

I want that one!

Oh well, I will have to make do with a remap on my 1.4 s-line, you can never have too much power!
Hi, Just remember if you have the S-tronic version it will not take too much more Hp/Torque as the tolerances are not great if you read the report on the Seat ibiza. :twisted:

I like changing gear too much, manual all the way!
I know if I got the s-tronic I would just chuck it in D and not touch it again...

"launched towards the end of the year" - is that announced (doubtful), available-to-order (possible) or deliveries to start (maybe only europe?).

I have the 122hp one on order - would like more, but maybe not that much - because of what it does to the co2 and economy. 140-150 and I would switch/go-for-it, but at that level then I think I'll leave it (unless I find the 122 too pedestrian).

If this was available as a manual I would be very annoyed now! Luckily, not so. Isn't there an ABT remap for the 122 petrol, upping it to 150? I will definately have a look at that once I have played with the car for a few months.

The S-tronic can handle about 240 ish BHP so don,t worry about a remap, which should take the standard 122 BHP up to about 150/160 BHP i guess 160 would be nice.
My friend has a new Seat ibiza Cupra with 180 BHP standard and some of the guys have had a remap that pushes it up to about 220 ish Bhp no problem with the DSG gearbox.
Fuel consumption has improved in some cases after a remap, unless you are using the extra power of course.

Actually the S-tronic has been re-worked and can now handle much more power. The TTRS can now be fitted with S-tronic and this is transversly mounted like the A1. Even the new RS5 has S-tronic, allbeit the longitudinal version and so even 450BHP and 430nm torque (thats off the top of my head so don't shoot me if its slightly off) can be handled with no problems and no 'shredding the gearbox'.

Just a note on the date, I can confirm that this new engine will be available to order towards the end on this year, in S-tronic only.

Hope this helps

There are different versions of the S-tronic box. The original 6 speed (transvers) as used on the 1.8l and 2.0l A3s and the TT uses a multi plate wet clutch set-up. The 7 speed (transverse) in the A1 and 1.4l A3s uses a single plate dry clutch set up which is both simpler and lighter.
The most recent variant - the longitudinal 7 speed box as used in the A5 also uses a multi plate wet clutch set up with much heftier clutches and a duplicated oil system.
I would have thought that the wet set-up would help heat dissipation and hence allow greater torque to be handled.
It is the engine's torque rather than its power that is the key factor for these gearboxes.
