Audi A1: new details, specs and pricing

Article by Christian A., on November 10, 2009

The source also says that prices of the A1 will be close to the Mini Cooper. Slated to go on sale at the end of 2010 is the upmarket supermini, which is likely to be priced at about 13,000 for the base three-door model. 

A majority of the range is said to retail from 15,000 to 20,000. While the new A1 is said to have plenty of mechanical parts in common with the recently launched VW Polo, only a few details have been revealed.

What is likely is that it will be powered by a range of existing VW group engines and some newly developed motors.

At the bottom of the petrol model range is a turbocharged 1.2-litre petrol engine in two states of tune - 84bhp and 104bhp. Further up there will be a turbocharged 1.4-litre petrol with 120bhp and a high-performance, supercharged and turbocharged version of the same unit that puts out 168bhp.

Diesel engines are said to likely consist of a 1.6-liter common-rail injection unit in three states of tune: 75bhp, 90bhp and 105bhp.

Sources from Audi assert that the company wants to offer A1 buyers a similar ownership experience to that of the Mini. What this statement hints at is that there will soon be a wide range of options to personalize your car. In addition, Audi is s planning an all-in service package, designed to give a fixed ownership cost over three or five years.
