AUDI has given the A1 not so much as a mid-year face-lift as the full treatment with a lifestyle diet and chiropracter and fashion remake thrown in to boot.
Despite being the littlest Audi, the A1 range has proven itself to be a force to be reckoned with. Since its international introduction in 2010, the A1 range has not only become a segment leader, but has also successfully conquested more customers than any other Audi model.
Since its introduction in South Africa in 2011, the Audi A1 has been a great success. Along with its Sportback counterpart, the A1 has sold over 8 700 units locally, outselling its closest premium rival three to one.
The 11 new A1 models will have a three-cylinder TFSI engine emitting less than 100 g of CO2 per km — that is the lifestyle diet.
As for chiropractor treatment, Audi’s smooth S-tronic transmission is now available on all models for gear shifts that will remind you of Hussein Bolt.
The fashion remake includes higher-specification levels which have been included across the range, while new colours and wheel options also allow customers to customise their vehicles further.
