November is set to see the release of the second generation Audi A1 which is promised to have more technology, more safety kit and the latest Audi features. Here we have a look at the new A1 and discuss the features that make it one of Audi’s most popular models.
There are a variety of turbocharged engines available and notably, there is no diesel options available. The options available are a 1.0 L, 1.5 L and 2.0 litre engine which offers up to 197 bhp. You can also expect a 250 bhp all-wheel drive to arrive in 2019. All models will be front wheel drive and come with the option of a six speed manual gear box or a seven speed dual clutch automatic gearbox.
The Audi A1 will offer very agile handling, allowing you to easily take those corners at speed. There are three suspension options on offer so you can tailor it to match your comfort levels. In addition, you’ll get a range of safety features and driving assistance that look to keep you safe and comfortable. For example, lane departure warning which alerts you if you’re drifting out your lane.
Audi’s interior is always classy and sleek. This is no different with the A1. As a minimum, you will get an 8.8 inch centre console touchscreen (10.1 inch in top models) which offers technology such as voice control and sat-nav. The sat-nav will incorporate internet connected google maps and live traffic updates. All this can be accessed by the multi-function steering wheel. There are multiple ways to upgrade the interior technology, such as wireless phone charging.
A big change to the new A1 is the amount of space on the inside. The boot capacity has increased by 65 litres to 335 litres and the further increases to 1090 litres when you fold down the rear seats. This also give passenger more space compared to the previous model, which is always a plus.
The Audi A1 is the smallest Audi on the market but the latest A1 has been bulked up and made bigger. The new A1 is now 4.03 meters long compared to the 3.97 meters of the previous model. All models will be five door with this generation due to the poor sales performance of the three door models. For greater personalisation, Audi offer eleven colours so you can choose your favourite. Furthermore, you can contrast elements such as the windscreen pillars and roof to the main vehicle colour.
For greater visibility, Audi has added new full LED headlights so you can easily see any hazards on the road regardless the conditions. It’s also been described as a very aggressive look, which could be a result of the 18 inch alloy wheels, bigger air vents and single frame grille. This is certainly a car that has been made more practical for the year to come.
