PARIS PREVIEW: AUDI A1 1.4 TFSI

By Drew Johnson

Audi has announced it will use this month’s Paris Motor Show to launch its new A1 range-topper – the A1 1.4 TFSI. The A1 1.4 TFSI will arrive at European dealerships shortly after its Paris debut.

Sitting atop the A1 range, the A1 1.4 TFSI uses the Volkswagen Group’s supercharged and turbocharged 1.4L four-cylinder, dubbed ‘dual-charge’ in Audi speak. With the supercharger huffing away at revs up to 2,400rpm and the turbo kicking in at 3,500rpm, the 1.4L makes a healthy 185 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to the hatch’s front wheels via Audi’s seven-speed S tronic gearbox.

Those figures translate to brisk performance numbers, with the premium hatch capable of accelerating from 0-62mph in 6.9 seconds. The A1 1.4 TFSI tops out at 141mph, yet returns a very good 39.8mpg.

The A1 1.4 TFSI trim-level also ups the A1’s standard equipment list, which includes an electronic limited-slip differential, 17-inch wheels, S line exterior package, black headlining and an LED interior lighting package. Pricing for the A1 1.4 TFSI will start from €24,250.
