The new 2011 Audi A1 has only just made its world debut but already we have details for the sporty S-Line package that will go with it. Designed and manufactured by Audi’s quattro GmbH division, the S-Line pack helps to improve the A1’s handling thanks to the addition of a stiffened suspension kit plus bigger wheels and tires. It also makes the diminutive A1 look a lot sportier, not to mention provide us with a clue as to how the high-performance S1 model will be styled.
The S-Line package for the A1 comes in two different flavors: the S-Line Exterior and S-Line Sport Package. The S-Line Exterior kit is purely for styling and toughens up the look of the A1 with custom side sills, a new roof spoiler, revised bumpers with bigger air intakes and a rear diffuser.
The S-Line Sport Package adds 17 or 18 inch alloy wheels, an adjustable sports suspension kit and a new leather-wrapped sports steering wheel and bucket seats.
The A1’s powertrain has been left untouched, which means you get a choice of four different engines: two TFSI gasoline units and TDI turbodiesels, all of which feature turbocharging, direct fuel injection and engine stop-start technology.
Sadly, there remains no word on whether the A1 “premium compact” will be headed to the U.S. but you can still read up on all the details in our previous story by clicking here.
