Audi A1 Sportback surfaces

Audi has added a more practical version to the A1 range for 2012. Due to appear in showrooms early next year, the five-door Audi A1 Sportback has the same 2.47 metre (8.10 ft) wheelbase as its three-door sibling, but is six millimetres (0.24 in) wider and taller, providing more space for passengers in the rear.

Enigne options include three TFSI petrol and three TDI diesel units developing between 63 kW (86 hp) and 136 kW (185 hp), with the seven-speed S tronic transmission available as an option in the 90 kW (122 hp) 1.4 TFSI and 66 kW (90 hp) 1.6 TDI, and standard specification in the 136 kW (185 hp) TFSI model.

Many options from the current A1 are available for the Sportback, including xenon plus headlights with LED daytime running lights and LED tail lights, a panoramic sunroof and leather multifunction sport steering wheel. Other features will include Audi connect, meaning cars with the in-car MMI (Multimedia Interface) display could go online and also integrate Google Earth into the in-car navigation.

The two prices given are € 16,950 for the 1.2 TFSI in the Attraction trim line and € 19,050 for the 66 kW (90 hp) 1.6 TDI version.
