Audi Ditched S1 Moniker Due To Lack Of AWD

The Audi A1 1.4TFSI has stolen our hearts and left us wanting more, specifically a hotter version under the S1 label. If you’re like us, we have some bittersweet news for you.

Audi has announced that there will be no S1 for the time being, but that the A1 1.4TFSI was going to be the S1 right up until the last second. But Audi had reservations about calling it the S1 when it had no quattro all-wheel-drive system, necessitating the name change.  Regardless of the name, the 1.4L twin-charged engine and 7-speed dual clutch gearbox are enough to make us salivate, and apply for EU citizenship. Look for the A1 1.4 TFSI to debut at this month’s Paris Auto Show.
