'Dual-charged' Audi A1 1.4 TFSI
Audi's new turbocharged and supercharged A1 1.4 TFSI subcompact is available to order now, priced at £20,705 OTR. Is the direct injection petrol baby Audi the perfect blend of performance – 185PS, 0-60mph in 6.9s and 141mph V-max – and economy – 47.9mpg? It just might be. It certainly sounds cool to us. The supercharger kicks in from as low as 1,500rpm, with the turbo "adding its influence" (Audi speak), from 3,500rpm, offering both excellent performance and frugality. They'll also be a slick S-Tronic seven-speed dual clutch transmission, with its microsecond action gear shifts, a Limited Slip Differential with the latest breed of ESP software to maximise traction and S-Line suspension, 17-in rims and the usual high-quality Audi finish. Looks like an interesting motor to us. Agreed?
