Audi A1 and A3 Get a New 1.4-litre TFSI With Cylinder Deactivation

Audi has added a new efficient 138bhp 1.4-litre Cylinder on Demand engine to the A1 and A3 range. This new engine can shut down two of its four cylinders to improve fuel consumption. The switch between two and four-cylinder modes takes as little as 13 milliseconds to optimise efficiency.

The A1 with a 138bhp 1.4-litre TFSI CoD starts from £16,740, offering fuel economy of 60.1 mpg and CO2 emissions of 109g/km. 0-62mph comes in 7.9 seconds.

The A3 1.4-litre CoD starts from £20,055, offering the same fuel economy of 60.1mpg. The three-door A3 can accelerate from 0-62mph in 8.3 seconds, while the Sportback does it in 8.4 seconds.

All versions of the A1 and A1 Sportback are equipped from launch with the seven-speed S tronic twin-clutch transmission, and all versions of the A3 and A3 Sportback with a six-speed manual gearbox. Later this year both transmissions will be available for all A1 and A3 CoD models.

Both models are available to order now.
