The engine we mentioned is a 1.4-liter TFSI unit, which develops 122PS and 200Nm of torque. It is paired with a choice of two powerunits, either a 6-speed manual gearbox or the optional 7-speed S tronic twin-clutch transmission.
Thanks to both the engine and the transmissions, the A1 is capable of reaching 100 km/h in 9.1 seconds and can accelerate to a top speed of 124 mph (200 km/h). Fuel consumption is estimated at 55.4mpg (4.2l/100 km), while CO2 emission levels are said to stand at 119 g/km.
The S Line is the second very special A1 presented in Geneva, after the e-tron A1. This range extended electric vehicle, featuring an electric motor, a battery pack and single-rotor 254 cc Wankel engine.
Visually, the A1 is basically the same as the production version A1. Still, efforts have been made to make it look different. The car is painted in “Aqua Mint, pearl effect” and, as with both the other two e-tron models, rides on 18-inch wheels with a 20-spoke turbine design.
