Audi South Africa has introduced a lovely customisation programme for the small A1 range. Called A1 Amplified, the packages are designed to suit individuals, such that A1 owners feel they are catered for in a special way, not as part of some mass. Plus, because they can be factory-fitted, it means they are covered by Audi.
Based on the Ambition line, the features include two exclusive exterior colours called Misano Red and Glacier White. Standout pieces include the likes of a high-gloss black roof arch on the 3-door hatch and a full roof dome on the Sportback model, 17-inch alloy wheels with black inserts. Inside we see black sports seats and body-coloured air vents among others. The A1 Amplified package costs R20 000.
The cars are still being run by the same engines, meaning the 1.2 TFSI with 63kW and 160Nm, the 1.4 TFSI making 90kW and 200Nm, as well as the same engine delivering 136kW and 250Nm. The 1.6-litre turbo diesel makes 77kW and 250Nm of torque.
