The most compact of the Audi S model range, the S1 and S1 Sportback provide superior performance with a dynamic look and sporty comfort while still being practical. A 2.0TFSI engine produces 231hp and up to 370Nm of torque giving the S1 the ability to accelerate from 0-100km/h in just 5.8 seconds on its way to a governed top speed of 250km/h. A six-speed manual transmission transfers power to the quattro permanent all-wheel drive system. Electronic control of the system is dynamic and allows spontaneous steering into curves and controlled drifts on road surfaces with low friction values. Overall, the S1 and S1 Sportback have a sporty and stiff setup with management of features such as the shock absorbers, throttle valve, engine sound and automatic climate control all through Audi drive select.
An S model through and through, the power and performance of the S1 is made visible with black or red brake callipers, exterior mirror housings in aluminium look and of course the S1 logo at the front. Inside, the driver can enjoy optional S sport seats with S1 embossing on the front-seat head restraints.
