Audi’s smallest offering, the fantastic little A1, has had a complete makeover and the new model, due towards the end of the Summer, has been completely redesigned from the ground up.
The premium hatchback is already the perfect car for zipping around town, heading off to the shops, or helping you relax on your daily commute. Now, the latest generation of this model promises big car technology and luxury, in a compact, easy to live with model.
An increase of 56mm brings the new A1 to just over 4 metres in length. With a low stance on the road, at just 1.41m high, the A1 retains its sporty feel.
The new design incorporates elements from the 1980’s Ur quattro seamlessly mixing the charm of the old with the beauty of the new. Agile handling means the new A1 offers an exciting driving experience, on top of fun engines outputting between 116 and 200 PS. Shortly after launch a 95PS, 25 TFSI engine will follow.
Inside, a high resolution digital instrument cluster blends with the 10.25-inch screen for a sleek, uncluttered view. The latest generation of voice control and driver assistance systems such as pre-sense, lane assist and parking systems make the A1 a tempting option for longer distance drivers too. High levels of spec are available, even in the opening SE model which provides the driver with touchscreen displays and a multifunction steering wheel. The optional Audi Virtual Cockpit is available as a stunning addition and puts important information, and navigation if available, right in front of the driver.
Mimicking the current line-up, the new A1 will feature SE, Sport and S line trims, with the S line offering the most powerful engine choice. Twin tailpipes also adorn the rear of the S line for a sporty look.
The new A1 will be available in a choice of 10 colours which can be combined with a contrasting roof. For further personalisation, the wing mirrors and side sills can be customised in this contrast colour too.
Two Launch Edition models will be available upon the vehicle’s first arrival to the UK which build upon the extensive spec of the S line and add a choice of white, black or bronze wheels, darkened LED lights, exclusive black Audi rings and a range of styling packages.
Inside the cabin you’ll notice how much more spacious the new A1 is, improving comfort not only in the front but also in the back. Luggage capacity has increased by a huge 65 litres, bringing the space up to a total of 335 litres, or 1090 litres with the rear seats folded down.
The new Audi A1 is available for order this September, with first deliveries expected in November. Get in touch to find out more, today.
All vehicles that are sold by the Vindis Group are subject to an administrative / preparation fee of £90 inc VAT. For new vehicles this charge covers the cost of mechanically preparing the vehicle for delivery, the administration of new ownership documentation and final preparation for customer handover.
For used vehicles, this charge covers a full history and provenance check prior to being advertised for sale ensuring no financial risk or charge has been levied against the vehicle, that the vehicle has never been written off or stolen and final preparation for customer handover.
Vindis Group believe this level of preparation is crucial in ensuring we provide the highest level of customer satisfaction, for which the Vindis Group is renowned for.
For this reason, and in response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, as of 6.00pm 23/03/2020 we made the decision to temporarily close all Vindis showrooms to members of the public. Whist we know this may cause some disappointment, our priority is to protect the well-being of our employees and customers in line with the latest Government guidance. For customers due to take delivery of your new vehicle we will be in contact and will aim to complete your transaction in a safe and compliant manner.
For those customers that are booked in for Aftersales care, all bookings other than those for Key Workers (as identified by the Government’s latest listings), urgent MOT’s and breakdowns are in the process of being cancelled; and each existing booking will have been confirmed with our team in advance of your visit to site. For other routine service and maintenance items, we will be in touch to re-arrange your booking for as soon as we re-open.
In order to facilitate the above, and in order to protect both you and our staff, our dealerships will be locked for the foreseeable future, and so upon arrival, please follow the instructions on the door in order to gain access. Additionally, it is vital that we ask that you do not attend any of our sites without having had a clear and specific communication that you qualify under one of the above guidelines, and we thank you in advance for complying with this difficult and possibly disruptive decision. Please also note that we have amended our service opening hours during this period to 08:30 – 17:30 Monday to Friday and closed during weekends.
Finally, although our showrooms are closed, should you wish to contact us we would be delighted to help you remotely in anyway possible; the best methods in which to contact us is either via email or through the live chat function found on our main Vindis Group website.
Please stay safe through this unprecedented period and we know that by working together, we will come through this stronger.
