audi_a1 The Audi A3 and A1 are set to receive some brand new engines. With economy in mind, both cars will get a magnificent 60 MPG petrol engine.

The engine will come with cylinder deactivation technology which shuts down cylinders when they are not being used. This will help to save energy and fuel. Two cylinders will be shut when the car is not being pushed so hard. That’s the same technology as within the Volkswagen Golf.

The Audi A1

For the A1, the 1.4 litre engine will contain TFSI technology with maximum power of 138 BHP. From not 0 – 62 MPH the car will record a time of 7.9 seconds. C02 emissions will be recorded at just 109g/km. Both the Sportback and the three door versions will boast the same figures. The Black Edition models will hit a total of 57.6 MPG with C02 emissions hitting 113g/km.

The Audi A1 models will come with both a seven speed dual clutch gearbox. For those who want a six speed manual, that will come later on in the year.

The Audi A3

The Audi A3 will cost £20,055. The current model holding the 1.4 TFSI costs £19,205 which is able to power up to a maximum of 120 BHP. The three door version will hit 0 – 62 MPH in just 8.3 seconds whereas the Sportback does it in just 8.4 seconds. When compared to the current 1.4 TFSI, the newer variant will beat it hands down. This produces a maximum MPG of just 54.3 whilst hitting 0 – 62 MPH in 9.3 seconds.

Prices for the 138 BHP TFSI will start at £18,190 for the three door S tronic model. The A1 sportback will cost just £18,810. The Audi A3 will cost £20,055 with the Sportback costing £20,675.

The Audi A1 variants will come in Sport, S line and Black Edition. The Audi A3 will come in SE, Sport and S line trims.
