The new Audi A1 Sportback is now on sale with prices starting from £13,980 to £21,270. The 1.6 TDI Sport version has headline figures of 99g/km and 74.3mpg combined. The Sportback will expand on the eleven paint colours available for the three door with a twelfth colour Samoa Orange that will be available exclusively for the new five-door.
In many ways the new Sportback makes more sense than the three door A1, the added practicality doesn’t ruin the looks or the likeability of the car and the extra flexibility is a bonus. This version has a full five seat capability with a slight increase in head and shoulder room, the luggage compartment capacity is on par with the three door version at 270 litres increasing to 920 litres with the seats folded.
Standard features include alloy wheels, split/folding rear seat, front and rear electric windows, air conditioning, single CD audio system with MP3 compatibility and ESP with latest differential lock system. The options list for the A1 Sportback extends beyond the three-door version by offering customers the possibility to choose one of three contrasting colours not only for the roof line as in the three-door, but also for the entire roof itself as well as, in S line models, the spoiler that extends from it.
