Powered by a 2.0-litre TFSI engine, producing 231PS and 370 Nm of torque, the high-performance S1 can accelerate from 0-62mph in 5.8 seconds with a top speed of 155mph.* Power and performance that puts the S1 firmly at the pinnacle of the A1 range.
For improved handling, quattro all-wheel-drive, electromechanical power steering and Sport suspension are fitted as standard. You can further optimise your drive with Audi Drive Select; its three modes – Efficiency, Dynamic and Auto – allow you to change the characteristics of the steering, suspension and throttle response to suit your individual style.
But it’s not just the S1’s handling and performance that will leave an impression. From optional contrasting upholstery stitching to the eye-catching quattro styling packs (details of which can be found on page 66), the S1 looks as impressive on the inside as it feels to drive.
quattro, Audi’s intuitive all-wheel-drive system, earned its reputation by helping our rally cars to victory on the demanding circuits of the 1980s.
Fitted as standard on the S1, quattro constantly analyses each wheel and distributes power to where it’s needed most. The result? Improved grip and handling, even in less than perfect driving conditions. Acceleration is aided by greater traction, which ensures that the S1 quattro of today is every bit as exhilarating as the original.
