Audi A1 quattro: Driving report

Audi A1 quattro

Nice driving report here with the Audi A1 quattro.

What’s it like to drive?

Promising, although as our early assessment took place on a frozen lake in Sweden, we’ll have to wait to deliver the definitive verdict. Even on studded snow tyres, the A1 Quattro felt to be as quick as the official figures suggest – Audi claims a 5.7 second 0-62mph time – with full throttle producing a serious induction roar. Only a manual gearbox will be offered – apparently DSG wouldn’t fit – and the transmission uses the same shift knob as the R8, and has a pleasing weight to it that’s missing from the standard A1.
