Audi ensures us that the tiny A1 is no budget model, but aimed at the likes of BMW’s MINI brand. Audi says they’ve received a surprisingly high demand for the new car, and as a result, will be increasing the expected annual production run of 100,000 by 20%. In fact, they’re hoping they’ll have as many as 50,000 units roll off the assembly line by the end of 2010.
The A1 initially gets three engines – a 1.2 TFSI, the 1.4 TFSI and the 1.6 TDI – all three getting turbochargers, direct injection, and Audi’s fuel-saving engine start/stop system.
