Today, the all-new 2011 Audi A1 steped on the UK market officially. Price-tagged between £13,145 and £18,280 on the road, the urban mini car blends the latest innovative technologies that befit a premium sector hatchback with the technological sophistication and quality of finish that mark out every Audi.

Available in three different trims - SE, Sport and S line, the UK Audi A1 models will include features like: alloy wheels, remote central locking, air conditioning, electric front windows and mirrors and a six-speaker single CD audio system with auxiliary iPod connection linked to a 6.5-inch retractable display.

In the Sport model, the available tech-features render larger diameter wheels, sports suspension, sports seats, Bluetooth mobile phone preparation and a Driver's Information System, while the S line versions upgrade with extras such as an exclusive S line exterior treatment including larger 17-inch alloy wheels, S line sports suspension and leather and cloth combination upholstery.

The amazingly equipped A1s will be offered with a choice of three ultra-efficient TDI and TFSI power units, all of which compensate very effectively for their relatively small displacements with the latest turbo charger technology, and benefit from engine start-stop and recuperation systems.

All powerplant options are reinforced by the latest generation ESP unit with electronic differential, which initiates brief, controlled braking of the inside front wheel while cornering and transfers the excess torque to the outside wheel, which can apply more power to the road.

Xenon headlamps with trademark LED daytime running lights will be offered at extra cost exclusively for S line models, but all versions will offer the option to upgrade with premium segment specification enhancements such as a BOSE sound system including LED-lit woofers, DAB radio, the Audi Music Interface for iPod connection, cruise and parking distance controls and the Multi Media Interface (MMI) navigation plus system.

The A1 also allows numerous customisation options for both exterior and interior using an array of colours, materials and equipment options specially styled to make each small ride more unique and remarkable.
