Citycarver model adds off-road appeal to Audi A1

By / 4 months ago / News / No Comments

Audi is launching a new Citycarver version of its A1 supermini to bring offroad appeal.

The Audi A1 Citycarver

Following in the footsteps of models such as the Ford Fiesta Active, the move sees the A1 gain more rugged styling and increased ground clearance to position it more as an urban crossover.

Available to order in Europe from August, the A1 Citycarver builds on the standard model with underbody protection, contrasting wheel arches and side sills, larger 17-inch alloys, roof-edge spoiler and raised suspension, giving around four centimetres of additional ground clearance. The front-end gets a revised octagonal version of the Singleframe grille while the rear gains a new-look bumper.

Drivers also have the choice of nine paintwork colours and a contrast roof in grey or black.

A fully digital instrument cluster comes as standard, with the Audi virtual cockpit and MMI navigation plus at the top of the range, complete with 10.1-inch touch display and voice control.

At market launch, Audi will also introduce an ‘edition one’ special edition finished in arrow gray or pulse orange with 18-inch wheels and edition one decals. The exclusive interior equipment is based on the S line interior line and features accents in a choice of orange or silver.

Deliveries of the A1 Citycarver start in the autumn.
