A fresh, self-confident road stance, plenty of room for customization and extensive connectivity: all are hallmarks of the Audi A1 citycarver.
The 4.04 meter Audi A1 citycarver is based on the A1 Sportback with respect to technology and design. It features powerful and taut, sporty body lines while also offering around four centimeters of additional ground clearance. This provides for easier entry and better visibility. The new suspension with a higher ride height accounts for 35 millimeters. The rest is due to the larger wheels compared with the A1 Sportback, starting at 16 inches in diameter.
The exterior sports a robust, off-road look. The large, octagonal Singleframe is reminiscent of the Audi Q models. The strongly sculpted honeycomb insert is painted matt black. Two characteristic slots above the grille differentiate it from the A1 Sportback. Underbody protection painted in stainless steel hints at the off-road capability of the A1 citycarver. The wheel arches and the redesigned side sills sport add-on parts in a contrasting color. The redesigned rear bumper echoes the robust look of the front end.
In the interior, the design and the driver-oriented control panels enter into a perfect symbiosis. The digital instrument cluster, for example, forms a compact unit with the air vents. The vents, the center tunnel console and the doors sport accent surfaces in mint, copper, orange or silver-gray. The S line also offers structured gray as a color.
The Audi A1 citycarver mirrors the A1 Sportback with a generous interior and a luggage compartment holding 335 liters. The same applies with respect to the standard and optional equipment, including full-LED headlights with dynamic rear turn signals. With the A1 citycarver, however, customers also get the S line roof edge spoiler and standard larger wheels, starting at 16 inches. The assist systems, which include adaptive cruise control and park assist, are taken from the full-size class. Audi pre sense front (pedestrian and cyclist detection) and lane departure warning are standard.
The Audi A1 citycarver can be ordered beginning in August 2019 and will arrive at European dealerships in fall 2019. At market launch, Audi will also introduce the edition one, a special edition finished in arrow gray or pulse orange with 18-inch wheels. The frames of the front side air inlets, the radiator protective grille, the Audi rings in the Singleframe and the rear labeling are black. Headlights and rear lights are tinted; the roof and exterior mirror housings are contrasting colors. A decal with the edition one logo in a matt silver shade adorns the flanks. The exclusive interior equipment is based on the S line interior line and features accents in a choice of orange or silver.
