The Audi A1 Sportback has been proving itself since it was introduced to the market in 2010 not only for city driving but also over longer distances. The most recent accolade, the Auto Trophy 2020 in the “City Cars” category, selected by readers of the German magazine “Auto Zeitung,” underlines the high ranking of Audi’s most compact model. The 2022 models of the highest-performing model, the Audi A1 Sportback 40 TFSI1, is available with 152 kW (207 PS) and 320 Nm torque – as part of the adjustment to the current exhaust emission standard, an increase of five kW.
In addition to the enhanced performance, Audi is offering the equipment package “S line competition” and red stitching for the sportiest compact model to highlight the sporty nature of the exterior and interior with subtle but unmissable features. The “S line competition” package can now be ordered for the Audi A1 Sportback 40 TFSI1 as well as the 35 TFSI2 and the 30 TFSI3.
The package includes, among other things, platinum gray side mirrors and platinum gray laminated Audi rings for the paint option Ascari blue. With the roof in contrasting Mythos Black as well as the side rocker panels, the Singleframe grille in matte black and the frame in high-gloss black, the four rings in front and back as well as the badging are also in black. Combined with the darkened LED headlights and LED taillights, they harmonize perfectly with the metallic color Ascari blue, which is available for the Audi A1 Sportback 40 TFSI exclusively with the “S line competition” equipment package.
The front spoiler blade in matte platinum gray, the side mirror body in platinum gray and the laminated rings in platinum gray above the rocker panels together with the metallic paint color Ascari blue are particularly eye-catching. The S line rear spoiler in Mythos black and the diffuser clip in platinum gray complete the color options exclusive to the new equipment line “S line competition”. Fans of the A1 can also look forward to optional 18” wheels that enhance the sporty look further.
Audi Sport GmbH is also offering the stitching in red with the S line interior for all A1 models. The red accents in the interior highlight the sporty nature of the compact A1. For their front sport seats, customers can choose between a combination of fabric and mono.pur leatherette or Alcantara and mono.pur leatherette. Both options feature express red stitching. The floormats, handbrake handle, gear shifter and steering wheel also feature red decorative stitching. A center armrest and door arm rest with red stitching can also be ordered optionally. A black sunroof completes the sporty interior.
