Audi has revealed the A1 Citycarver, a raised-up and more rugged-looking version of the A1 Sportback.
It goes on sale in September, with a choice of two petrol engines.
The new model is designed for urban environments rather than off-roading, therefore avoids the usual Allroad moniker.
Wheel arch extensions, sill covers and stainless steel underbody guards enhance the look of the new version over a regular A1, there is also a 40mm increase in ground clearance to aid entry and visibility.
The new Citycarver version of the A1 will be available to order with either the 1.0-litre 30 TFSI or 1.5-litre 35 TFSI petrol engines.
In the interior features an 8.8-inch MMI touch screen and 10.25-inch digital cockpit display. Its capability can be expanded further by adding the optional Technology Pack, incorporating the Audi virtual cockpit, MMI navigation with a larger 10.1-inch high resolution screen, Audi connect and the Audi Phone Box facilitating wireless smartphone charging.
The Comfort and Sound Pack is also available, adding the Parking System Plus with acoustic and visual assistance and additional front protection to complement the standard rear sensors, front seat heating and the Bang & Olufsen 3D sound system.
The A1 citycarver mirrors the A1 Sportback with a 335-litre boot. The Citycarver comes as standard with 17-inch alloy wheels, a roof-edge spoiler usually fitted to S line versions and full-LED headlights with dynamic rear turn signals.
Prices and CO2 emissions are yet to be confirmed. First deliveries of the A1 Citycarver are expected in Autumn.
