In their latest episode, the guys from Fifth Gear got behind the wheel of a smaller car; the new Audi A1. Now, being since these guys love their sports cars, how do you think the Audi stood up against its rivals? Well, Audi claims that the small and sporty A1, out to attack the reign of the Mini Cooper, is “the sportiest, most luxurious car in its class.” With that type of claim, anyone would be hard-pressed to find someone who would not want to test it. Take a look and see what Johnny Smith has to say about Audi’s city car.
The Audi A1 is starting to pick up speed and we will be bringing you more test as they come in. .
The compact Audi A1 is being offered with a choice of four four cylinder engines, made up of two TDI units and two more small displacement TFSI gasoline burning power plants that produce 86 HP and 122 HP respectively. Every engine option is mated to a fuel saving seven speed S tronic gearbox and offers fuel economy between 43 MPG and 62 MPG depending on the engine. This setup allows the Audi to sprint from 0 to 60 MPH ranging from 9 to 12 seconds with a top speed going from 111 MPH to 124 MPH depending on your fuel of choice.
