Audi currently has no plans to offer the A1 compact car in the United States, but when the model goes on sale sometime late next year in Europe, the company will offer buyers a similar ownership experience to that of BMW’s Mini brand.
According to AutoCar, buyers of the Audi A1 will be able to choose from a wide range of options to personalize their car and the company is planning a all-in service package, designed to give a fixed ownership cost over three or five years. Pricing will also be competitive to BMW’s Mini Coopers.
The Audi A1 will share a lot of its mechanicals with the Volkswagen Polo. When it hits dealerships, the A1 will be offered with a range of turbocharged 1.2L and 1.4L gasoline engines with output ranging from 84-hp to 168-hp. The diesel engine lineup will range from 75-hp to 105-hp.
Audi is also considering a convertible, estate and an SUV version of the A1.
