New Audi A1 Quotes

Performance

The A1 range kicks off with a 85bhp 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol and it posts a reasonable 11.7- second 0-62mph sprint time and can go on to a top speed of 112mph. A better choice is the more powerful 120bhp 1.4-litre TFSI that’s also turbocharged. It has a benchmark sprint time of 8.9 seconds and has a top speed of 126mph.

On the diesel front there is good level of choice. The 1.6-litre TDI produces 104bhp sprinting from a standing start to 62mph in 10.5 seconds, and goes on to 118mph.

The flagship engine is the 180bhp 1.4-litre TFSI. Sprinting to 62mph from a standing start in 6.7 seconds is impressive and it has a top speed of 141mph.

Running Costs

Cheapest to run in the A1 range is the 104bhp 1.6-litre diesel. Thanks to its efficient common rail diesel engine it averages 70.6mpg. If that isn’t enough to give the A1 an edge over its competition come resale the A1 will be worth more than any of its competition including the MINI. Currently the 1.6-litre TDI is Audi’s lowest-polluting offering with 105g/km of carbon dioxide emissions.
