Audi Tweaks A1 To Bring Down To 99g/km - Skips Road Tax, Congestion Charge

Audi has tweaked its A1 1.6 TDI to launch its first ever car to dip below the 100g/km CO2 level.  The revised diesel range achieves 99g/km, making it free of road fund licence (road tax) and the London Congestion Charge in the UK.

An optimised ECU and a stop/start system also enable the revised model to achieve a fuel consumption of 74.3mpg, an improvement on the 70.6mpg achieved by the model it replaces (which had Co2 emissions of 105g/km).  Top speed is 118mph and the 0-62mph dash is dispensed with in 10.5 seconds — it’s no Audi R8 but then it costs a fraction to run.

The new A1 1.6 TDI will be available in all trim levels (SE, Sport and S Line) and comes with no premium over the car it replaces — the On The Road price is the same, starting at £14,480 and rising to £17,865.
