After eight years of production and limited editions such as the 256-horsepower A1 quattro, the smallest Audi of them all is all new from the ground up for the 2019 model year. Influenced by the styling language of the A7 and Q8, the subcompact-sized premium hatchback also draws design cues from the Quattro rallying icon. 4.03 meters long and 1.74 meters wide, the newcomer features a wider track and shorter overhangs than the model it replaces. From a visual standpoint, the wow factor gets the thumbs up for the three flat slits located below the edge of the hood. Available with full-LED headlights and beautified by the flat sloping C-pillars, the A1 Sportback is even better to look at with the S line package. Go for the 200-horsepower 40 TFSI engine, and you’ll also notice a twin-tailpipe exhaust system. At launch, the A1 Sportback is offered in a choice of 11 colors. Customers who want more in terms of customization can specify the roof in a contrasting color. Contrasting finishes are also available for the mirror housings, side front spoiler and side sills. 18-inch wheels in black, white or bronze up the visual ante furthermore.
