With less than 24 hours before the opening of the Paris Auto Show, Audi shows how the future seems to be for their small class.
Audi A1 Sportback is a closer to reality follow-up, in four doors, of the Audi A1 Metroproject, exposed at the Auto Show in Tokyo, which demonstrates that the manufacturer is on the good path. The concept has a length of about 4 meters, being clearly placed a class lower than the Audi A3 hatchback, with has 4.29 meters.
Its power comes from a 1.4 liter 150 HP engine, but there is a trick in the form of a hybrid unit, which provides 27 more HP. Helped by the new transmission with dual S-Tronic clutch, A1 Concept Sportback says that it reaches 100 km/h in just 7.9 seconds. This didn’t kick you off your seat? What about the very low consumption of only 3.9 liters / 100 km traveled - this is really impressive!
