New 99 g/km Audi A1 cleans up

Autozine
20 June 2011 | The Audi A1 1.6 TDI is now available as a more fuel efficient version. It shrugs off road tax and the London congestion charge through a lower 99g/km CO2 output. Improved 74.3 mpg economy potential, and unchanged OTR prices for the SE, Sport and S line models ranging from £14,480 to £17,865, also help to make the thriftiest A1 a more desirable proposition.

Optimisation of the fuel system and engine management unit has reduced the CO2 output of the A1 1.6 TDI from 105 g/km to 99 g/km, and boosted its official combined economy figure from 70.6 mpg to 74.3 mpg. As before, the achievement of these figures is aided by engine start-stop and energy recuperation systems.

The performance delivered by the turbo charged and directly injected common rail unit also remains the same. The A1 1.6 TDI with five-speed manual transmission sprints from rest to 62 mph in 10.5 seconds, and where conditions allow can reach a top speed of 118 mph.

The advantage held by the revised 1.6 TDI won't only be felt at the filling station. With CO2 dipping below the 100 g/km mark it is exempt from the London congestion charge, and also from Vehicle Excise Duty (VED) from year 2 onwards as the duty bandings currently stand.

The A1 1.6 TDI with 99g output can be ordered in all three UK A1 trim levels: SE, Sport and S line. Features common to all include alloy wheels, remote central locking, air conditioning, electric front windows and mirrors and a six-speaker single CD audio system with auxiliary iPod connection linked to a 6.5-inch retractable display.
