It will also involve the use of the engine coolant, maintaining the exhaust gas temperature at the proper level in warm weather, all the internal components have been designed and specially coated to help the thermal efficiency.
The rather large turbo (for a small motor anyway) can be up to 1.4 bar and an electronic sound drive is running at the tailpipe bought to life by switching to “Dynamic” mode, with the aim of a sportier (read S1 : louder) sound engine.
The electromechanical power steering system has been tuned to provide as much feedback as possible and easy to use in the city, but tight enough when the speed increases on winding roads. The Audi Drive Select system is also standard, with three modes – Auto, efficiency and dynamics.

Reverse parking sensors are standard, but the uprated “Audi parking system plus’ – with front and rear sensors – costs $ 600.
