The Alfa Romeo Mito’s combined fuel consumption is higher than the A1 at 5.5 l/100km with urban fuel economy at 8.0 l/100km. Reviews also complain about the Mito’s sluggish gear box and rough shifting. Perhaps the biggest competition to the A1 Audi will be the soon to be released Mercedes-Benz A-Class which will be valued within Audi prices. Mercedes plans to release the A-Class in Australia with powerful 1.6 and 2.0 litre engines.
Reviews of the S-Tronic Sport model praise its smooth shifting and responsiveness in manual mode. Compared to the more capable engines available on the A1 Audi, the 1.2 litre engine on the entry level model may disappoint drivers who look for a little more vigour from their autos. The step up to the 1.4 litre engine is definitely worth the $3,500 difference in price considering the performance and fuel economy benefits.
FRANKFURT—About 2.1 million Audi cars have the software that is at the center of the Volkswagen AG emissions scandal, a spokesman for Audi AG said Monday.
The interior doesn’t disappoint with standard leather covered steering wheel, trip computer, and 6.5 inch retractable screen for MP3 and Bluetooth. The dashboard is stylish, accessible and definitely Audi quality. The upholstery is generously padded for extra comfort and absorption of road trauma and front seats allow for ample leg and foot room. The fact that the A1 Audi seats five in its hatchback version is a definite plus for families. Reviews state that three adults can fit in the back of the Audi hatchback as a result of 11m more of overhead space. Cargo space is 270 litres that expands to 920 litres with seats folded flat.
