Audi’s new 1.6-litre A1 emits merely 99g/km of carbon
Audi’s revised A1 city car is an eco-friendly version as it emits merely 99g/km of carbon, while achieving fuel economy of 74.3mpg from the 1.6-litre TDi diesel engine.
The new model consumes less fuel than its predecessors. Fuel consumption has come down from 4.3 liters to 3.8 liters per 100 kilometers.
The car manufacturer has tweaked the fuel system and ECU along with start/stop and energy recuperation systems to make the car economical as well as environment friendly.
Buyers of the new vehicle will find their new car exempt from the London congestion charge and from Vehicle Excise Duty, or road tax, from second year onwards.
The list of Audi A1’s striking features includes alloy wheels, remote central locking, electric front windows, electric mirrors, air conditioning, and a 6-speaker single CD audio system with an auxiliary iPod connection linked to a 6.5-inch retractable display.
New Audi A1 will be available in all three trim levels, viz. SE, sport and Premium S Line configurations, in Europe. In the United Kingdom, 1.6-litre A1 TDI will start at £14,480.
