The Audi A1 has always been a popular choice for those wishing to lease a car; and now that choice becomes easier with the addition of a new three-cylinder petrol engine model with styling revisions, equipment upgrades and increase in overall efficiency.
The new three-cylinder 95PS TFSI petrol engine that is now available in an Audi A1 promises up to 67mpg when it comes to fuel economy and 97g/km in emissions, and replaces the 89PS 1.2-litre four-cylinder engine that has been available in the A1 since launch.
With 160Nm of torque available, the A1 1.0 TFSI with standard five-speed manual gearbox can accelerate from 0-62mph in 10.9 seconds in both guises of three-door or five-door Sportback body style, and also when it uses the available seven-speed S tronic twin-clutch transmission. Top speed in all models is 116mph.
With the standard manual gearbox in use, 67.3mpg fuel economy is achievable (with the promised 97g/km emissions) - and with the S tronic transmission 64.2mpg and 102g/km respectively - in comparison to the 1.6-litre TDI model which now offers an increased 80.7mpg on the combined cycle test, and a CO2reduction to 92g/km.
The new three-cylinder petrol engine is available in conjunction with either SE or Sport specification, with both options including:
As with all Audi cars, both the Audi A1 and Audi A1 Sportback 1.0 TFSI versions are available with optional extras to enable drivers to personalise and enhance their car.
The roof line in three-door models and the entire roof section in Sportback versions can be painted in a range of contrasting colours. With the addition of extra features such as privacy glass and a high gloss black styling package that includes both the grille and side air inlets, an imposing and individual look can be created to fit the personality of the driver.
In the cabin - which is as high-quality as you would expect from from an Audi - the rear view mirror surround, air vent sleeves, door pulls and the edges of the centre console can be finished in vibrant colours including Misano red, Macao yellow and Glacier white, along with the addition of other extras to enhance the drive.
Extras such as a choice of cost-effective bundled option packages that can add in features such as an open sky panoramic sunroof, acoustic parking control, LED interior lighting, satellite navigation, Audi Phone Box mobile connectivity and in-car internet services via Audi connect.
