Audi's smallest four-wheel drive hatchback, the S1, gives drivers exactly the right amount of speed, power, handling and fun that they need.
The new Audi S1 may pack a powerful punch, but from the outside it's clear that looks can be deceptive. There's nothing to suggest just how fast and thrilling the S1 is from first appearances, but that's not to say it isn't charming. In fact with its stylishly narrowed headlights, gently curved rear and earnestly big windscreen, the S1 is an exceptionally handsome compact car that does a deceptively good job of looking rather sweet … until the engine revs.
As a high-end and highly desirable Audi, it's no surprise that the S1's interior is an incredibly nice place to spend your time, either behind the wheel or as a passenger. Audi's usual top-quality materials are arranged in an intuitive design, the controls are damped to give a satisfying feeling when used and the surfaces are all a tactile treat for the fingers. A touch of extra exclusivity is granted by aluminium trim, stainless steel pedals and a three-spoke leather Sports multi function steering wheel, which comes with a high-gloss S1 badge and perforated leather trim.
The new Audi S1 comes with only one choice of engine, but thankfully it's a 2.0-litre, turbo fuel stratified injection petrol engine that will give you 227bhp with ease. Meanwhile, the quattro system's permanent all-wheel drive, the 'S' specific progressive steering and 'S' Sports suspension with its adjustable dampers, mean that you will never bite off more than you can chew on the road, with the S1 ensuring a smooth and pleasant drive at all times.
No matter which trim option you plump for, the Audi S1 takes the safety of the driver and any passengers very seriously indeed. For a start there are airbags for the driver and front passenger as well as a front side and head airbag system, rear head restraints and seatbelt monitoring. The S1 also comes with secondary collision brake assist and Electronic Stability Control (ESC).
For those looking for a fantastic range of entertainment and multimedia options, the S1 also has you covered thanks to Bluetooth connectivity, a CD player, an SD card reader and Audi Music Interface (AMI) connection.
