Description

The Audi S1 and the Audi S1 Sportback launched in 2014 as the new flagship models in the compact A1 model line.

The 2.0 TFSI engine developed 170 kW (231 hp) and produced 370 Nm of torque. The car featured a quattro permanent all-wheel drive system with a hydraulic multi-plate clutch located on the rear axle. Its specifically tuned control software boasts a decidedly dynamic setup. The electronic differential lock with the fine-tuned wheel-selective torque control is a function of the Electronic Stabilization Control (ESC). It features two-stage deactivation and supplements the work of the multi-plate clutch with additional finely metered braking intervention on the inside wheels – the interaction of both systems makes for extremely agile, precise and stable handling.

The suspension on the two compact sport models has been extensively revamped and the electromechanical power steering has been developed. Modified pivot bearings on the front axle enhance spontaneity when turning while at the rear, a four-link design replaces the compound link rear suspension used on the A1 models. The Audi drive select dynamic handling system comes with a range of settings to vary the response of the engine, automatic air conditioning and the likewise standard variable shock absorbers. A larger brake master cylinder as well as large brake discs – front 310 millimeters in diameter – ensure excellent deceleration. The 17-inch wheels were fitted with 215/40 R17 tires while 18-inch wheels with 225/35 R18 tires were offered as an option.

On the exterior, the cars feature sportier bumpers and side sills, redesigned xenon headlights and LED taillights with new graphics. Four new exterior colors supplement the available paint finishes and the optional quattro exterior styling package came with a large roof spoiler. Inside, dark tones dominated the cabin, the pedal caps are made out of brushed stainless steel and the car is fitted with S sport seats.
