A lightweight athlete in the city
The new A1 Sportback has a lightweight design with masculine and sporty notes. The wide Singleframe grille, positioned downstairs, along with side air intakes, dominates the front. The design of daytime LEDs, optionally available, reminds of the dynamic shapes of the wings in the nautical sport, the so-called hydrofolis.
The "Looking" concentrated downwards, along with the segments in the rhombus in the upper area of the headlights, complete the sporty look of the car. Chassis construction provides agile handling and driving experience.
In addition to the standard suspension, there is also a more rigid sports suspension option. Dynamic packages, individually tailored for each type of motor, include equipment that adds even more to the model's sportiness. The new A1 Sportback braking system can be finely tuned.
The optional ramp start assistant increases safety in slopes and ramps, preventing runoff after stopping. The range of wheels varies between 15 and 18 inches. The new A1 Sportback can also optionally benefit from the Audi drive select system, used to choose between four driving modes - auto, dynamic, efficient and individually.
Powerful engine variants
Whether it's a city trip or a weekend trip, the powerful engine outfitting the new model turns the drive into a pleasure. The model includes efficient TFSI engines with power from 70 kilowatts (95 hp) to 147 kilowatts (200 hp). All propellers benefit from turbocharging, direct injection and particle filter. Combined fuel consumption of this model varies between 4.6 and 6 liters / 100 kilometers, and combined carbon dioxide emissions are between 104 and 137 grams / kilometer.
Dozens of personalization variants
The ten-color range in which the car is available emphasizes the design language chosen for the new Sportback. Inside, the colors of the lighting strips can be adjusted to suit your preferences, and the roof is made in contrasting colors from the A-pillar to the spoiler.
Contrasting colors also include exterior mirror housings, side spoiler side pockets or side sills. A novelty in this model is the modular structure of the lines, which allows greater flexibility in combining design elements from the outside with the interior ones. Depending on the equipment line - base, Advanced or S - the additional exterior parts are executed differently.
