 Audi A1   Technical data  Technical data
Where not otherwise indicated or separately listed, all technical data apply to Audi A1s with standard equipment for the German market. Other figures may apply for special versions and export models.
Please note that the details listed in the Audi A1's registration documents can be taken as correct.
Engine data
The figures for engine power output are determined according to EU standards.
Performance figures
The performance figures were measured without equipment which may influence performance, such as mudflaps or extremely wide-section tyres.
These figures (kerb weight according to the currently applicable version of EU Directive 92/21/EEC) apply to the Audi A1 with the tank 90% full, with no special equipment. The figures include an additional 75 kg to allow for the weight of the driver and luggage.
The gross Audi A1 weight may be exceeded by up to 30 kg when towing a trailer. The maximum rear axle weight may be exceeded by up to 45 kg.
Maximum trailer weights
The maximum trailer weights are calculated in accordance with the currently applicable version of EU Directive 92/21/EEC.
The figures for a trailer with brakes, on gradients up to 8% are applicable only up to a maximum speed of 80 km/h (even though higher speeds may be permitted when towing a trailer in some countries).
The figures for a trailer with brakes on gradients up to 12% and for the weight of car and trailer on gradients up to 12% are applicable up to a maximum speed of 100 km/h. This maximum speed must not be exceeded even in countries where higher speeds are permitted.
Maximum draw bar loading
The vertical load exerted by the trailer drawbar on the ball joint of the towing bracket must not exceed 50 kg.
In the interest of safety, we recommend applying the maximum permitted draw bar weight. The stability of the trailer could be adversely affected if too little weight is applied.
If the maximum permitted drawbar weight cannot be obtained, e.g. when using small or light trailers, statutory regulations require that the drawbar weight be at least 4% of the actual trailer weight (for single-axle trailers or twin-axle trailers with an axle spacing less than 1.0 m).
Notes for following tables
MG = Manual gearbox / AG = Automatic gearbox
1) Maximum speed is achieved in the second highest gear.
2) The specified trailer weights apply only to Audi A1s with a towing bracket obtained from Audi Genuine Accessories and fitted by an Audi dealer or qualified workshop.
3) This engine is available with reduced power for some markets (see car documentation). The performance figures may be slightly different.
4) Figures were not available at time of publication.
5) This engine is still under development at the time of printing.
