Make it your own
The wide track and short overhangs provide for a taut, sporty look. The distinctive daytime running light graphics of the optional full-LED lights echo the dynamic wing shapes from sailing, known as hydrofoils. The design of the shutters for the main light functions also draws inspiration from sailing. The wing segments on the flanks create an impression of maximum width. A low-set, concentrated look in conjunction with the small rhombus segments in the top section of the headlights provides a sporty appearance.
Eye-catching & masculine
The new A1 Sportback is available in a choice of ten colours that impressively showcase the design language. The roof of the compact model can be optionally finished in a contrasting colour from the A-pillar to the roof edge spoiler. The exterior mirror housings, the side front spoiler lips and the side sills are also available in a contrasting colour.
Sporty, poised tuning: the suspension
The axle design of the new Audi A1 Sportback delivers agile handling and a sporty, poised driving experience. The front suspension is a McPherson construction; a compact, lightweight torsion beam axle is used at the rear. Besides the basic suspension, there is an option for a tauter sport suspension. Audi drive select is also an available option.
The driver assistance systems for the Audi A1 Sportback come from the full-size class: They keep the compact car at the right distance from the car ahead, making it easier for the driver to maintain the lane and help with parking. The standard lane departure warning helps the driver to keep the car in the lane from a speed of 65 km/h. The optional adaptive speed assist keeps the Audi A1 Sportback at the desired distance from the vehicle ahead, while Audi pre sense front recognizes critical situations involving other vehicles, crossing pedestrians or cyclists ahead of the vehicle.
More space and comfort
The new A1 Sportback is much more spacious – making life much more comfortable for the driver, front passenger and rear passengers. Despite the compact exterior dimensions and the sporty roof line, adults in the rear seats still enjoy plenty of head and leg room.
