The recently introduced 2015 Audi A1 is back in an acceleration test for the version equipped with the 1.0 TFSI engine. The mid-life refresh for Audi’s supermini brings some important changes such as the implementation of three-cylinder engines, never seen before on a model wearing the four ring logo. The 1.0 TFSI turbocharged gasoline engine is now standard and is capable of generating 95 HP and 160 Nm of torque.
In the attached footage you can check out how the engine handles when coupled to the seven-speed S tronic transmission. It takes approximately ten seconds for the 2015 Audi A1 facelift to cover then 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint before topping out at 118 mph (190 km/h).
When equipped with this tiny and economical engine, the 2015 Audi A1 has a fuel consumption of only 4.3 liters / 100 km in the combined cycle, with corresponding CO2 emissions of just 99 g/km. If this isn’t frugal enough, Audi is selling the revised A1 in the 1.4 TDI ultra guise with a three-cylinder diesel rated at 90 HP which grants a fuel consumption of 3.4 liters / 100 km and CO2 emissions standing at 89 g/km. Both of them are available for the three-door A1 and five-door A1 Sportback and the diesel version represents the first time ever when Audi slaps the “ultra” badge on its entry-level model.
