Audi S1 Cars For Sale

The Audi S1 car is the high-performance sibling of the A1, the smallest of the S-class models, and inspired by the Volkswagen EA888 2litre turbo four-cylinder (of Golf GTI fame) combined with Haldex Quatro all-wheel drive. Produced from 2015 it is currently in its second generation and is generally viewed as the S1 flagship. The first generation is only available second hand in South Africa. Known as the A1 Sportback 35 TSFI S Line S Tronic, the naming convention is a mouth full when you look at the size of the body.

The latest generation brings a little more attitude with a lower, wider, and longer body, slightly less rounded and definitely a more muscular look with a rally-style appearance. The front grille is slightly more aggressive with a lower placement and side air inlets and the flat slits below the edge of the bonnet is a blatant reference to the rally car of the eighties. The eye-catching trend-setter is a city slicker's dream. Even the color range available is off the wall and makes a statement.

The Interior is what should be expected from Audi, spacious, and luxurious. Even with the sloping roofline, four adults can sit comfortably with more than enough head- and legroom. The second-generation S1 has slightly increased cargo capacity with 6335litres. The back seats fold down easily which increases the loading area to 1090 litres.

Smooth surfaces, soft0touch plastics, and matt black plastic enhance the feeling of luxury and sophistication. Compact instrument design and touch-screens all add to driving pleasure and the feeling of a rally car ability. The digital instrumentation is standard but upper trim levels include Audi's smart interface with a virtual cockpit, smartphone interface with handy screen mirroring function, and 11 speaker Bang & Olufson sound system. All functions can be navigated from the steering wheel controls, no need to take your eyes off the road.

Although the premium small hatch was designed with city driving in mind, it performs adequately on the long road, although the turbocharger causes a slight delay in acceleration in general driving mode. Switch it to a sport setting and you have a nippy and capable all-wheel dynamo at your disposal. Driving pleasure, ease in parking, and traffic navigation with excellent visibility, enhanced by a rear-view camera, the second hand Audi S1 is a super contender in its class.

Top speed is 220km per hour with a 110kilowatt powertrain producing 250Nm Torque. Combined fuel consumption is recorded at around 5,1litres per 100km. The Audi S1 price tag is clearly in the luxury category, but you get what you pay for.
