Audi A1 2020 review: 40 TFSI snapshot

The 40 TFSI is the top-spec Audi A1 in its three-variant range.

The 40 TFSI is the top-spec Audi A1 in its three-variant range, wearing an MSRP of $46,450.

It is powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine producing 147kW/320Nm – significantly more than the other two variants in the range. The 40 TFSI sports a six-speed dual-clutch automatic rather than the seven-speed dual-clutch available with the other two variants.

The 40 TFSI has a claimed/combined fuel usage number of 6.4L/100km and requires a minimum of 95 RON premium petrol.

Don’t you think the A1 is a good looker? I do, and in the flesh, it manages to look even better. (40 TFSI pictured) Don’t you think the A1 is a good looker? I do, and in the flesh, it manages to look even better. (40 TFSI pictured)

Safety features include auto emergency braking (AEB) lane keep assist (LKAS) with lane departure warning (LDW), six airbags and the expected stability and brake controls.

Audi covers the new A1 range with a three-year/unlimited kilometre warranty, and the 40 TFSI requires servicing every 12 months or 15,000km
