Audi A1 and A1 Sportback

2018 Audi A1
Over 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.2018 Audi A1

Seven engines are available for selection – five TFSI and two TDI units. Power output ranges from 60 kW (82 hp) to 141 kW (192 hp). 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 of 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 shutoff when the engine is operating at partial load.

Suspension
The chassis also contributes to the sportiness. The electromechanical steering is extremely efficient; the amount of power assistance provided decreases as the vehicle's speed increases. The suspension tuning is tauter with the sport trim line, while the S line sport suspension offers even greater dynamics.


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

Equipment and trim
The equipment range includes the design and sport lines. Other options include the design selection and the S line sport package as well as many other customization options – from colored air vent trim elements to decorative decals for the body. Additional choices are available from Audi Genuine Accessories, including the 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.
