New A1 options available to car leasers

JonathanNovember 15, 2011

Car leasing customers may be interested to know that Audi has expanded the range of options available for its A1 range.

The German manufacturer has introduced new design and engine specifications for the sub-compact hatchback.

Car leasers will be able to ensure their model is equipped for smooth long distance motoring with the A1’s new 2.0 litre TDI engine. This latest engine – the fifth introduced by Audi for its smallest model – is capable of producing 143PS, which will push the vehicle along at speeds of up to 135 mph.

The car also offers drivers a maximum torque of 320 Nm as the engine ticks over between 1,750 and 2,500 rpm.

Audi states the machine will allow car leasing customers to have a fuel efficiency of up to 68 mpg and a carbon dioxide output of 108g/km.

Car leasing customers who are looking for even more environmentally friendly figures could choose the 1.6 litre TDI engine, which cuts down carbon dioxide emissions to 99g/km, meaning the vehicle will not be subject to London’s congestion charge.

Those looking for all-out performance may want the petrol-powered 1.4 litre TFSI, which is supercharged and turbo charged to produce an impressive 185PS.

As well as the new under the bonnet additions to the range, Audi is also introducing new design aspects to the A1, which will ensure motorists have a striking and unique car.

Drivers can now choose to lease the Contrast Edition, which features aerodynamic styling that provides even greater benefits to those seen on the range’s current Sports models. The Contrast Edition also comes complete with 17-inch wheel alloys.

The final option is the Black Edition, the A1’s top of the range product. It comes with a host of additional features including titanium-finished 18-inch wheels and a 180 watt sound system.

Consumers looking for a larger vehicle that is still capable of good mpg figures could choose the A4 range. Audi recently announced changes to its A4 vehicles that make fuel efficiency its number one priority. The new models will be available to lease early next year.
