The exterior design will win you over with its striking, masculine features and its visual proximity to the Audi Ur-quattro and Sport quattro. The interior is sporty and compact. All controls are strongly driver-oriented. The infotainment and driver assistance systems at the luxury class level are also optimally designed for future-oriented networking.
The new A1 Sportback is much more spacious – making life much more comfortable for the driver, front passenger and rear passengers. The A1 Sportback has grown significantly in length – with an additional 56 millimetres (2.2 in), it now measures 4.03 metres (13.2 ft).
The new Audi A1 Sportback is fit for the digital future. Even the basic version comes standard with a fully digital instrument cluster with a high-resolution, 10.25-inch display and a multifunction steering wheel.
The wide, low-placed Singleframe grille and the implied side air inlets dominate the distinctive front. Below the edge of the hood are three flat slits – an homage to the Sport quattro, the brand’s rally icon. The distinctive daytime running light graphics of the optional full-LED lights echo the dynamic wing shapes from sailing, known as hydrofoils. A low-set, concentrated look in conjunction with the small rhombus segments in the top section of the headlights provides a sporty appearance.
