At last Audi revealed their new A1 ahead ot its world debut at Geneva, and that means no more stupid teasers, so cheers! So how is it? Well, they say it’s a premium compact car which offers the sportiness and individuality in a unique way. And although it seems to be a bit ambitious, but they want to rival the great MINI with this car. Reviewing the specs of the car, you have to say it is very well prepared for the job!

Audi is actually following MINI’s recipe for the A1. It has an iconic design which is kind of artistic and cool. And it’s very trendy as it gets distinguishing visual features such as LED lights, two ton body color, a massive grille and a diffuser, to mention a fewThey are also creating a big hype for it as well, as they have signed Justin Timberlake as their ambassador for promoting the car.

At launch, Audi A1 will be available with two diesel and two petrol engines. You get a 1.2 TFSI with 86 hp which is pathetic and takes 12.1 seconds to hit 100 km/h from standing still and has a top speed of only 179 km/h, but is really economical and averages 46 mpg. You are much better off with the 1.4 model which has 122 hp and is a bit quicker to 100 km/h (9.2 seconds) and can reach 200 km/h top speed.

As for the diesel units, you get two versions of a 1.6 TDI with either 90 or 105 hp. They are terribly slow but really really economical, as the weaker version can average 61 mpg! Astonishing. This high efficiency is achieved due to the refined S-tronic gear0c and start/stop system.

Audi offers the A1 in two trim levels. Attraction is the richly appointed charismatic version; Ambition the sporty and dynamic variant. Both lines can be combined with the media style package, which offers attractive infotainment and interior design options. Features such as the navigation package can also be purchased later, keeping the A1 fresh and attractive for years to come. The latest member of the Audi family also follows a fresh, young line with respect to materials and colors in the interior.

Despite being a compact car, The A1 turns out to be a very sporty car as you can have it with 17 or 18-inch wheels and S-line suspension! And with a base price of around 16,000 Euro, it seems to have all the bases covered to cause many troubles to the mighty Mini.

Check out a video walkaround of the car after the pictures…
