The face-lifted Audi A1 will arrive as soon as May, introducing two all-new engines, electromechanical steering, optional automatic transmission for the base model and new trim levels.
In a first for Audi, the A1 will be offered with a 1.0 TFSI three-cylinder engine, developed by Volkswagen Group.
Pricing for the Australian market remains under negotiation, but Audi says we can expect prices for the new streamlined range to remain similar to the current line-up. The 1.0-litre turbocharged engine replaces the 1.2-litre entry model, the 1.4 TFSI has been revamped and a sporty 1.8-litre TFSI replaces the current 1.6-litre engine. The recently released Audi S1 tops off the series with a 2.0 TFSI engine producing 170kW and 370Nm.
