Audi A1 supermini details announced

A brand new Audi is on its way, ready to make its first appearance at the Paris Motor Show, according to the German car manufacturer.

Audi's A1 1.4 TFSI 185PS is the company's much awaited supermini model, capable of hitting 62mph in less than seven seconds.

With a top speed of 141mph and average fuel consumption of 47.9mpg, the car contains a direct injection petrol unit to help its performance. The model also emits 139g/km of CO2.

The supermini will feature 17-inch alloy wheels, a central locking system, air conditioning, Bluetooth support, a 6.5-inch display and a secondary iPod connection, along with half-leather seats.

The 183bhp S Line car will also come with a standard seven-speed S-Tronic transmission, twin clutches and will be available to order for UK customers later in 2010.

Pricing has not been disclosed, but is expected to be similar to other cars in the S Line range.
