Audi in­tro­duces S tronic

NEW: The three-door hatch has sold well in the first three months

Weekend Witness - - Weekend -

FOL­LOW­ING the lo­cal in­tro­duc­tion of the Audi A1, Audi SA will be in­tro­duc­ing the sporty 1,4 TFSi S line S tronic to the lo­cal mar­ket. The Audi A1 has sold al­most 1 000 units in just three months, mak­ing it the lead­ing pre­mium A0 three-door hatch in its seg­ment.

The A1 1,4 TFSI (136 kW) has a con­fi­dent ap­pear­ance with its sin­gle-frame grille, the strik­ing roof arch, the flat Cpil­lar, the wrap-around en­gine hood and lug­gage hatch and the tor­nado line.

The 1,4 TFSI has a com­pact, light­weight en­gine with four valves per cylin­der. This pro­duces 136 kW and 250 Nm of torque. The sprint from zero to 100 km/h takes just 6,9 sec­onds, with a top speed of 227 km/h.

The spon­ta­neous re­sponse and high propul­sive power are achieved by spe­cial con­cept — a com­bi­na­tion of su­per­charger and tur­bocharger.

Ex­cel­lent fuel con­sump­tion fig­ures are achieved due to the FSI con­cept, which is the dual charg­ing sys­tem, and also tech­nolo­gies from the mod­u­lar ef- fi­ciency plat­form. The 1,4 TFSI uses on av­er­age 5,9 litres of fuel per 100 km and emits 139 g car­bon diox­ide per km.

The stan­dard seven-speed S tronic trans­mis­sion di­rects the power of the 1,4 TFSI to the front wheels. The sev­en­speed S tronic is com­posed of two trans­mis­sion struc­tures which are op­er­ated by two mul­ti­plate clutches. The gear shift­ing process takes place in just a few hun­dredths of a sec­ond and with no de­tectable in­ter­rup­tion of pulling power. The tall sev­enth gear re­duces fuel con­sump­tion.

Its stan­dard spec­i­fi­ca­tion con­tains a wide range of high­lights: Am­bi­tion equip­ment line, 17-inch wheels, S-line ex­te­rior pack­age, cli­matic air con­di­tion­ing, black head­lin­ing and the LED in­te­rior light pack­age.

The new Audi A1 1,4 TFSI S line S tronic is avail­able from all Audi cen­tres at an in­clu­sive re­tail price of R312 000. This in­cludes a five-year/100 000 km Free­way full main­te­nance plan.
