Self Study Program 674 – Audi A1 Sportback (type GB)

Self Study Program 674 – Audi A1 Sportback (type GB) PDF. With the market launch of the first Audi A1 (type 8X) in 2010, Audi moved into an exciting new segment and opened itself to an even wider audience.

Now, eight years later, Audi is presenting the second generation of this successful compact car in the shape of the Audi A1 Sportback (type GB). Powerful and efficient TFSI engines, combined with new-generation driver assist systems, make the Audi A1 Sportback (type GB) an ideal everyday companion, both inside and outside the city.

The second generation of the Audi A1 is longer and wider both inside and outside, yet its total height of almost 141 cm, its shorter overhangs, its low single-frame grille and other features give it a more dynamic, taut appearance. The equipment lines (basic, advanced and S line for the exterior; advanced, design selection and S line for the interior), which can be combined flexibly for the first time, provide scope for customisation and personalisation.

The Audi A1 Sportback (type GB) is young, digital and interconnected. The new operating principle of its infotainment systems follows that of the higher segments. Four sound systems round off the infotainment range.

The Audi A1 Sportback (type GB) focuses on safety, comfort and convenience, and offers a range of assist systems which enhance the driving experience and reduce the risks involved in driving as
far as possible. These include the lane departure warning, the speed limiter and Audi pre sense front.

The bodyshell provides outstanding passive safety and high torsional stability; 27% of it is made up of hot-formed ultra-high strength composite parts. Sleek, wedge-shaped lines and a drag coefficient of just 0.31 round off the vehicle concept. This makes the Audi A1 Sportback (type GB) the ideal everyday companion both inside and outside the city.

The Audi A1 Sportback (type GB) presents itself as an ideal all-rounder for young customers: compact and agile for city driving, powerful and sporty for outside the city. Fuel-efficient and powerful engines, a wide range of driver assist systems, customisable driving dynamics, smart infotainment,  digital and interconnected. The Audi A1 Sportback (type GB) offers all these things and more. Here you can find an overview of the key characteristics offered at market launch.

Efficient and powerful 3-cylinder and 4-cylinder TFSI engines with power outputs ranging from 70 kW
(95 bhp) to 147 kW (200 bhp). Turbocharging, direct injection and a particulate filter (country-specific) are

Light and particularly strong: 4 different hot-formed steel composites provide high
strength and safety in the most important places.
