Audi’s A1 grows a pair

Not too long ago I was fortunate enough to test drive the Audi A1. I was surprisingly impressed with its packaging, feisty engine and quality build. Now that they’re adding two more doors, I’m sure more people will give it the proper chance it deserves.

So far only destined for the European market, the A1 Sportback takes an already good-looking exterior and makes it even more attractive. The S line trim (pictured) really gives it the sporty look to match its performance.

The interior is customizable with Audi’s wide range of interior fabrics and colors. It’s probably just as fun to spec the A1 you want as it is to drive. Wonder if it’s heading our way?

    Keeping the same lines as the 3-dr version with the contrasting roof arch has not filtered the ‘look’, two thumbs-up for the final design!
    There is limited demand for small-hathces in this part of the world, hence manufacturers are not too keen on developing them in return for small volumes. I believe that with the growing conjestion in our small cities, this will change, especially now that the A1 is available with 185hp!!!!

    Looks good but now its lost a little of that cuteness. Hope they don’t add 2 more doors to the Fiat 500 😀

    I like the concept of small 4 wheelers and only 2 doors. There’s also a good market for that with younger generations. Plus it’s not too high which i’m assuming is safer and from what I hear Audis are pretty sturdy. Now it’s veering towards the “family car” look :/

    Nice ride for Europe but I cant see it doing well in the Middle East or the US market.

    @Miss Good Egg: I believe there is strong market potential for cars like these; they’re affordable, loaded with options (everything you would get in bigger cars), consume less and are attractive as well.

    @El Jockey: The US, probably not… I think demand in the Middle East is growing for cars as such.
