Dare to make your mark
The Audi A1 Sportback is available in a choice of ten daring colours, to complement your individuality. On the compact model you also have an option of a contrasting colour finish, from the A-pillar to the roof edge spoiler.

All eyes on you

Wherever the day’s journey leads, the Audi A1 Sportback drives a statement home. The wide track and short overhangs provide for a taut, sporty look. The design of the shutters for the main light functions draws inspiration from sailing and days spent soaking in the sun. The wing segments on the flanks create an impression of maximum width. A low-set, concentrated look in conjunction with the small rhombus segments in the top section of the headlights create a bold and confident appearance
