2013-02-14 08:11

LIMITED EDITION STYLE KIT: Audi's little A1 receives a lot of style in 2013 with the addition of style kit which adds designer elements to the exterior and interior.

The Audi A1, launched in February 2011, marked the German automaker's entry into the premium compact hatch segment. The A1 Sportback followed in 2012 to expand the range's practicality.

So far (Feb 2013) the Audi A1 range has found 4244 customers in South Africa.

For 2013 Audi has introduced an accessories package which combines an array of popular customisation features into one deal. The new-edition models are based on the Ambition line, available for all engine versions of both models.


The Audi A1 Amplified package is a limited edition styling package available exclusively with a choice of red or white body colours and includes a high-gloss black roof arch on the three-door and full roof dome on the Sportback. An S-line roof spoiler, exterior mirror housings and single-frame grille have been added.

The model has 17" alloy rims with black inserts and a matte transparent film for the bonnet, roof and tail while the cabin gets body-colour air vents, black sport seats with red or gray stitching and mats with piping in matching colours. the package costs R20 580.

Ryan Searle, head of Audi SA, told Wheels24: “We believe the introduction of the Audi A1 Amplified package will provide the model range with a new dimension to its customisation. Although subtle, the package provides some stand-out value from the standard vehicle, while keeping the intrinsic brand values of sporty, sophisticated and progressive.”
