Audi A1 1.0 TFSI

Audi A1 1.0 TFSI three-cylinder delivers triple whammy

Audi A1 1.0 TFSIAudi has opened ordering in the UK for the new A1 1.0 TFSI model – a downsized model that’s faster, more economical and cheaper to run than the bigger-engined car it replaces. 

Succeeding the 1.2-litre TFSI 86hp model, the new 90hp 1.0-litre TFSI is a three-cylinder engine rather than the older four-cylinder motor.

However, the all-new design packs a bigger punch and can accelerate from 0-62mph in 10.9 seconds – that’s almost a second faster than the old car.

Despite this, it’s significantly more fuel efficient, returning 67.3mpg instead of the old model’s 55.4mpg. CO2 emissions are down too, from 118g/km to 97g/km.

This means the new A1 triple – Audi’s first-ever three-cylinder petrol engine – is exempt from VED road tax.

Available in SE and Sport trim, the new A1 1.0 TFSI is offered in three-door and Sportback five-door guise, with either a five-speed manual or seven-speed S-tronic gearbox.

Prices start from £14,315, and all cars come with air con, alloys, remote locking and pop-up colour infotainment screen. The Sport adds bigger 16-inch alloys, sports suspension and seats, Bluetooth and the Audi Music Interface.

On sale in dealers now, deliveries will begin in the summer.
