it’s high time for a new version of the smallest Audi model. Because last year a competitor Mini to hit him at the sales figures and. And because of this is with stickers, and more colors of paint to customize, you can order such a decoration now also available for the Audi A1: Our test car rolls out in turbo blue with roof in Mythos black. Cool: The white rims from the S-Line equipment, the appearance, such as the extra expensive wheels of the Audi Sport Quattro from 1983. Supposedly this is supposed to have inspired Over-the-Audi also the slots under the front hood.

The A1 looks almost like the predecessor from 2010. Is now but also on VWs modular Transverse matrix. Means for us: Major dimensions (eight inches in length, nine inches more wheelbase) and thus more space. But The three-door has been deleted; there is only the five-door. The centre console is now angled towards the driver, Navi, monitor, and optional virtual instruments are also new. Diesel is not list in the price.

In Normal driving program the automatic dual-clutch transmission when pulling off, slowing him a little. “Sports”, and already look different: Quick Response, fast Turn – thanks to the sporty, but not at all uncouth chassis, it doesn’t stop even with the winding country roads. The driving dynamics of the Mini drives away the new A1 so. Only 116 HP? You can hardly believe it. However, the small engine needs high revs – and the hit at the pump on the mind.

a Fine small car with strong suspension and a great interior. In the it is, however, a lot of money for options, if you want to bring him to the level of the test car.
