2017 Audi A1 Quattro

2017 Audi A1 Quattro
A clear sign of the popularity of the Audi A1 and A1 Sportback is the over 500,000 cars sold since its market launch in 2010. The Audi compact models are now being made even more attractive with benefits to both interior and exterior design. Fresh decors and paints give them an even more attractive appearance. The small compacts exhibit handling that is like that of a mid-class car. The rigid car body and short wheelbase make them agile and maneuverable.

2017 Audi A1 QuattroOver 700,000 cars sold since the market launch in 2010 – the Audi A1 and the A1 Sportback enjoy tremendous popularity. The compact model, upgraded in early 2015, packs all of the brand's virtues into its 3.97 meters (13.0 ft) of length – progressive design, uncompromising quality and high efficiency. Its range of powerful engines and agile chassis make the A1 – the three-door car of the model series – the sportiest in its segment. The design is distinctive and powerful. Audi optionally offers the roof line in a contrasting color. Attractive colors and chrome strips highlight the high-quality interior.

Powertrain

Seven engines are available for selection – five TFSIs and two TDIs. The 1.0 TFSI, the first ever three-cylinder gasoline engine in the history of the Audi brand, has a combined fuel consumption of just 4.2 liters per 100 kilometers (56.0 ÚS mpg), which equates to 97 grams CO2 per kilometer (156.1 g/mi). The three-cylinder diesel, the 1.4 TDI with 66 kW (90 hp), attains an NEDC fuel consumption figure of 3.6 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers (65.3 ÚS mpg) and emits 94 grams CO2 per kilometer (151.3 g/mi). And the 1.4 TFSI COD features as a highlight the cylinder on demand system (COD), which enables temporary cylinder shut-off when the engine is operating at partial load.

2017 Audi A1 Quattro
The seven-speed S tronic transmission is available as an option for all of the Audi A1 engines apart from the basic gasoline version; with the 1.8 TFSI it comes as standard. The driver can let the lightning-quick dual-clutch transmission shift automatically or control it manually. Power is transmitted via the front wheels.


Chassis
The chassis too contributes to the sportiness. Its electromechanical steering is extremely efficient; the amount of power assist decreases as the vehicle speed increases. With the sport trim line the tuning is tauter, while the S line sport chassis offers even greater dynamics.

The Audi drive select dynamic handling system (standard in the sport trim line) lets the driver vary the engine characteristic, the S tronic and adjustable shock absorbers – another option – in the auto, efficiency and dynamic modes. At the limits of performance, wheel-selective torque control makes handling even more precise and stable.

Equipment
The equipment range includes the design and sport trim lines. Other options include the design selection and the S line sport package as well as many other customization options – from colored air vents to decorative decals for the body. Audi Genuine Accessories offers even more options, including the new active kit.

The high-end solution in infotainment is MMI navigation plus with intelligent voice control and a monitor that folds out from the instrument panel. The Audi connect module including car phone connects the A1 to the internet. Components such as the Bose surround sound system round out the infotainment lineup.

Audi A1 Sportback

The Audi A1 Sportback offers a bit more headroom in the rear as well as more comfortable entry. The second row includes a third seat at no extra cost. The five-door model has its own style also in the color scheme: Its contrasting paint finish covers the entire roof dome.

The possibilities for custom configuration are extremely varied with numerous trim lines, equipment packages and kits as well as individual options and accessories.

Five TFSI and two TDI engines, including two three-cylinder models, make up the engine lineup of the Audi A1 Sportback. The performance range extends from 60 kW (82 hp) to 141 kW (192 hp). With the 1.4 TFSI COD, the cylinder-on-demand (COD) system deactivates two of the four cylinders when under partial load. The 1.4 TDI has a combined NEDC fuel consumption of just 3.7 liters per 100 kilometers (63.6 ÚS mpg) which equates to 97 grams CO2 per kilometer (156.1 g/mi).
