Engine & Performance
The new S1 is powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine producing 231 horsepower and 274 lb ft of torque.
The S1 uses the Quattro AWD system. The car can sprint from zero to 62 mph in just 5.8 seconds. The top speed is projected at 155 mph and claims an estimated fuel economy rating of about 33 mpg combined.
The Audi S1 comes as a 3-door hatch, with an optional 5-door hatch available.
The tail-lamps are smaller, sharper and look more attractive than those in previous models. The quad exhaust provides sufficient outflow; they are located on top of the rear diffuser.
In making it more attractive, the roof and rear hatch inset are in black; this gives a bold contrast to the red on the body. The carâ€™s front grille has the same black color and has wider spacing between the horizontal grille slats.
This Audi has a heavily styled front bumper, LED taillights and Xenon head-lamps, a deeper rear bumper, wider sills, unique graphics package and 4 round chrome tailpipes.
The inside is very traditional. The cabin features clean lines, large controls and other ergonomic details.
Inside, you find a swath of yellow slathered across the center console and with yellow stitching. Apart from the yellow, red accents can be found and makes the cabin appear menacingly cozy in the dark.
