The young and urban at heart are to rejoice to the fact that Audi has introduced a rather funky, stylish and sporty looking A1 model – meet the new and upcoming Audi A1 ‘citysaver’ urban dweller.
So what is “up” with this new A1citysaver model? Well ‘a lot,’ I would confidently say. It comes in with the maker’s newly adopted design language that has been initially adored by many on the current Audi Q8 luxury SUV. For starters, the citysaver is based on the Sportback model that also features a raised ride height (34mm), undercarriage protection, larger wheel arches that house bigger wheels (standard 16inch wheels), redesigned side sills and a redesigned rear bumper.
Also confirmed is a Dynamic Package, which includes brake disks with sporty red calipers, the Audi drive select dynamic handling system, a sound actuator and a suspension with adjustable dampers. 18inch wheels are also part of the package.
The new Audi A1 citysaver has not yet been confirmed for Mzansi introduction, however, the maker has confirmed a European introduction in the last quarter of 2019. Expect the engine line-up to be carried over from current A1 models once it arrives in Mzansi (hopefully). Stay tuned.
