The safety of road users is always a primary consideration for Audi. The A1 Sportback’s active and passive safety technology is proof of this.
Reducing the chance of accidents taking place is Electronic Stability Control (ESC). Through automatic braking and engine management, a loss of traction is avoided when a skid is detected.
For passive protection there are driver, front passenger, front side, and head airbags. Meanwhile, children’s seats are securely fastened in place using ISOFIX anchorage points.
The effortlessly cool A1 Sportback packs a large amount of appealing design cues into its compact frame.
At the front are halogen headlights (SE and Sport trims) which are replaced with Xenon Plus headlights with LED daytime running lights on the S line and Black Edition.
Vibrant front fog lights are a no-cost fixture on all models except the SE.
A polished tailpipe is one other exterior feature that all but the SE
boast. Its chrome finish is also found around the famous Audi grille.
The serene interior is insulated well against noise and vibrations that would potentially lessen your on-board enjoyment.
The ‘Zeitgeist’ cloth is the standard seat upholstery and cloth/Milano leather is the alternative within the S line.
Three passengers can sit on the rear bench and because the car has five doors they can quickly take their positions.
The variety of A1 Sportback engine options give you the opportunity to select the most desirable performance output. The fastest of them all is the 1.4-litre TFSI with Audi cylinder-on-demand technology which generates 148bhp. A 0-60mph time of less than eight seconds is around one second quicker than the same unit without the technology.
The 1.0-litre TFSI is a more economical petrol option with a combined fuel economy figure of up to 67.3mpg. The 1.6-litre TDI diesel with five-speed manual transmission is the most frugal in the line-up, however, as it is capable of returning as much as 80.7mpg combined.
More leading Audi technology is housed in the cabin. A 6.5-inch MMI display in every A1 Sportback enables you to keep track of an abundance of information.
For example, you can quickly read the song choice when an MP3 player is connected via the auxiliary socket.
A DAB digital radio provides another entertainment and information option. Integrated Bluetooth® for audio streaming and telephone functions is accessed in every model excluding the SE.
