Audi released details of a new top of the range A1 model, to be unveiled at the forthcoming Paris Motor Show. We were all expecting to see the S1 in Paris, but the new A1 1.4 TFSI won’t disappoint either as it comes with a small nuke under the bonnet! The 1.4 TFSI engine in this car develops 136 kW (185 hp) and 250 Nm (184.39 lb-ft) which is a lot in a tiny city car.

As a result of that power and thanks to the S tronic dual-clutch transmission, it can do 0 to 60 mph in just 6.9 seconds, and has a top speed of 227 km/h (141.05 mph). Despite this, the A1 1.4 remains fairly economical at 5.9 liters of fuel per 100 km (39.87 US mpg), and CO2 emissions of just 139 g/km (223.70 g/mile).

The car also comes with McPherson construction at the front and the torsion-beam rear suspension with separate springs and dampers which at least on paper makes it an absolute joy to drive. Another specialty that comes standard for the chassis is the ESP stabilization program with electronic limited slip differential. When the system detects an impending loss of traction at the inside wheel during fast cornering, it initiates very brief braking of that wheel.

The safety package comprises two front airbags, thorax/pelvic side airbags and curtain head airbags. Belt tensioners and belt force limiters plus the Audi integral headrest system round out the package. Isofix child seat anchor points in the rear are standard.

As for the equipments, you get LED daytime running lights, the LED tail lights, the LED interior lighting package, the high-beam assistant, the light and rain sensor, the panoramic sunroof, the convenience key with the start-stop button, two navigation systems and a 465 watt Bose surround sound system with 14 speakers. Finally, manual and automatic air conditioning systems plus heated front seats are optionally available.

The car will be launched by the end of the year, with a starting price of €24,250.
