- Exterior design with robust off-road look with octagonal Single frame and around four centimeters (2.0 in) more ground clearance thanks to higher ride height and larger wheels
- Cutting-edge infotainment components and extensive digital connectivity
- Optional sporty suspension tuning with the Dynamic package
Ingolstadt, July 29, 2019 – A fresh, self-confident road stance, plenty of room for customization and extensive connectivity: all are hallmarks of the Audi A1 citycarver. The most progressive model in the new A1 product line is at home in any environment: in the city, on country roads and highways and even on slightly rough terrain.
The 4.04 meter (13.3 ft) Audi A1 citycarver is based on the A1 Sportback with respect to technology and design. It features powerful and taut, sporty body lines while also offering around four centimeters (2.0 in) of additional ground clearance. This provides for easier entry and better visibility. The new suspension with a higher ride height accounts for 35 millimeters (1.4 in). The rest is due to the larger wheels compared with the A1 Sportback, starting at 16 inches in diameter.
The exterior sports a robust, off-road look. The large, octagonal Single frame is reminiscent of the Audi Q models. The strongly sculpted honeycomb insert is painted matt black. Two characteristic slots above the grille differentiate it from the A1 Sportback. Underbody protection painted in stainless steel hints at the off-road capability of the A1 citycarver. The wheel arches and the redesigned side sills sport add-on parts in a contrasting color. The redesigned rear bumper echoes the robust look of the front end.
At the center of the digital world: infotainment and Audi connect
Attractive infotainment components and extensive connectivity make the Audi A1 citycarver a clever companion for young drivers in particular. A fully digital instrument cluster comes standard, with the Audi virtual cockpit and MMI navigation plus topping the range. Drivers control the top-of-the-line infotainment system via the 10.1-inch touch display or simply via voice control. Navigation destinations are found quickly via free text search. Maps and navigation service provider HERE computes the route online with consideration of traffic conditions in a wide area.
Dynamic package for an enhanced driving experience: the suspension
The suspension of the most progressive Audi A1 is harmonious and precise. The A1 citycarver is even nimbler thanks to the optional Dynamic package. It includes brake disks with sporty red calipers, the Audi drive select dynamic handling system, a sound actuator and a suspension with adjustable dampers. Audi drive select, which offers four modes – auto, dynamic, efficiency and individual – is also available separately. Audi also offers wheels up to 18 inches in diameter with the dynamic package.
