Audi SA has introduced an Audi Genuine Accessories package available to factory-fit on the A1, combining an array of popular customisation features into one package.
The new edition models are based on the Ambition line, which is available for all engine versions of both models. The models combine exclusive optional features from Audi, quattro GmbH and Audi Genuine Accessories. The Audi A1 Amplified package is a limited edition styling package available exclusively with a choice of Misano Red or Glacier White exterior colours.
The package includes a high-gloss black roof arch on the three-door and full roof dome on the Sportback, S line roof spoiler, exterior mirror housings and single-frame grille. The exterior is further accentuated by 17-inch alloy wheels in five-arm design with black inserts and a matt, transparent film for the engine hood, roof and rear hatch. Eye-catching features inside the car include air vent sleeves in the body colour, black sport seats with stitching in Parade Red or Rock Gray and floor mats with piping in matching colours.
The package is priced at R20 580.
"We believe that the introduction of the Audi A1 Amplified package will provide the model range with a new dimension to its customisation. Although subtle, the package definitely provides some stand-out value from the standard vehicle, while keeping to the intrinsic brand values of Sporty, Sophisticated and Progressive", said Ryan Searle, Head of Audi South Africa.
The entry-level 1.2 TFSI engine generates 63kW and produces its peak torque of 160Nm between 1500 and 3500rpm. Coupled with a five-speed manual transmission, it consumes just 5.1 litres of fuel per 100km, which corresponds to only 118 grams of CO2 per km.
The 1.4 TFSI displacing 1390 cc is available in two versions. With the 90kW version, the four-cylinder unit is boosted by a turbocharger with a peak torque of 200Nm, available between 1500 and 4000rpm. Its average fuel consumption is just 5.4 litres per 100km; with the seven-speed S tronic, this improves to 5.3 litres per 100 km.
The most powerful engine in the model series is also a 1.4 TFSI. The four-cylinder unit, which is only available with S tronic, produces 136kW and 250Nm of torque. The sprint from zero to 100km/h is a matter of 7.0 seconds, and the top speed is 227km/h. Average fuel consumption is just 5.9 litres per 100km.
