It’s compact, not cramped
When you take a seat in the Audi A1, what strikes you is the feeling of spaciousness. True, it’s a compact car on the outside so it’s easy to park and efficient to drive. But major design consideration has been put into how everything fits together on the inside.
The Audi A1 can fit 4 adults.
Helping to keep you and your passengers safe
The high-performance brake system combines short braking distances, sensitive control and optimum cooling, for a consistently effective performance even after repeated applications. ABS antilock braking and EBD provide extra peace of mind if you need to stop suddenly.
In the event of a side impact, side airbags will activate, preventing occupant injury. The head-level airbag covers the entire front and rear side-window including the A-post area.
Intelligent airbag system
In the event of an accident, intelligent impact sensors – including an innovative ‘up-front’ sensor – will detect the severity and nature of the impact and trigger the appropriate occupant protection systems.
Quality beyond its class
Introducing the new Audi A1, the compact car that will set new benchmarks in its class for style, quality and exclusivity. As you would expect from Audi, exquisite attention has also been paid to the smallest of details.
Flexibility and convenience in the concert radio system
Standard across the Audi A1 range, the Concert radio system is easy to operate. Thanks to a dynamically changing radio station list, only receivable stations are displayed. There are two FM tuners – one for receiving the currently selected station and one to hunt for new stations in the background.
The Concert radio is equipped with an MP3 and WMA-compatible CD drive and, with MP3s, all the song file data (title, artist, length, etc) can be displayed. There’s also an aux-in socket so you can connect audio devices such as MP3 players and deliver sound through the car’s fantastic speakers.
This system also features an SD memory card reader.
Smooth gear changes, lower fuel consumption
The revolutionary S tronic transmission combines the responsiveness of a manual gearbox with the convenience of an automatic. Thanks to innovative dual-clutch technology, S tronic can make a gear change in just 0.2 of a second, with no interruption to the power flow, allowing you to benefit as fully as possible from the engine’s output at all times, resulting in better fuel efficiency and lower CO2 emissions.
S tronic is available on the 1.4 TFSI petrol engine.
All engines available on the Audi A1 feature start-stop.
When you’re stuck in traffic or stopped at traffic lights, your idling engine still uses fuel. Our start-stop technology switches off the engine when you’re not moving and out of gear.
The starting procedure is triggered as soon as your foot depresses the clutch and you’re up and running by the time you’ve selected a gear. Simple. This saves on energy, CO2 emissions and up to 0.4l of fuel for every 100km.
Acoustic rear parking system
When you reverse, the optional Audi Acoustic Parking System is activated. It sounds a clear tone if there are obstacles behind the car. The nearer you get, the more frequent the tones. The sound becomes continuous at just 30cm from the obstacle.
Clear visibility – no matter the conditions
Available as an option, the rear-view mirror intelligently dims when light is emitted onto it from behind, preventing drivers from being dazzled by following cars. The auto-dimming rear-view mirror option also includes the light and rain sensors.
