After someone else has been driving your Audi S6, you’ll want to get everything back in position as quickly as possible. The optional one-touch memory function can be used to personalize numerous settings on the Audi A6 and its MMI for up to 3 users. Once the driver selects their personal configuration, by pushing one of the three buttons on the driver’s side door, an array of processes are initiated: the seats, mirrors and steering column are adjusted in line with the pre-selected configuration, together with the climate control’s temperature and air distribution settings.

One-touch memory can also activate the radio volume, preferred radio station and tone settings for each driver.

TDI engine technology made its debut in 1989. Audi presented the world’s first production car diesel engine with turbo charging, direct injection and electronic management at the Frankfurt Motor Show (IAA). Turbodiesel technology with direct injection went on to become a major success.

Today, Audi TDI engines featuring the latest common rail injection technology are as notable for their power and refinement as they are for their exceptional economy. Their great advantage is plentiful torque that is available from low revs, making for strong and easily accessible performance, coupled of course with remarkable cruising range. This choice blend continues to make TDI variants the most popular in every Audi model range that offers this option.

Common rail system explained

In TDI engines equipped with the common rail system, all cylinders are located on a single high-pressure rail. This rail is an accumulator, which is supplied by a pump and stores the fuel at a pressure of up to 2,000 bar – the equivalent of the weight of a luxury saloon car on the space of one square centimetre.

Thanks to the high pressure and a very fine bore diameter of only one tenth of a millimetre in the nozzle, the injectors achieve very fine atomisation of the fuel. This ensures excellent mixture preparation and highly efficient combustion, which delivers greater power, low emissions and low fuel consumption.

Bright contrasting colour schemes and extra equipment for new A1 version positioned between S line and Black Edition

  • New addition to the ‘A1 Editions’ range positioned between S line and Black Edition models – OTR prices from £18,125 to £20,605
  • Around £2,200-worth of additional design and technology-oriented equipment including metallic paint and xenon headlamps for a premium of £950
  • Available in conjunction with 1.2 TFSI 86PS, 1.4 TFSI 122PS and 1.6 TDI 105 PS engines

A colourful new complement to the S line specification for Audi A1 and A1 Sportback models has just become available in conjunction with selected petrol and TDI engines. The A1 S line Style Editions with their striking exterior and interior additions will sit midway between the S line and more overt Black Edition options already offered for the A1, and will include around £2,200-worth of design and technology-oriented options for a premium of £950 above the equivalent S line model. Prices will range from £18,125 OTR to £20,605. 

The new S line Style Edition upgrade includes metallic or pearl-effect paint finishes in a choice of Ice Silver, Phantom Black, Misano Red or Glacier White colour schemes. These are complemented by a gloss black finish for the contrasting roof line in three-door versions, and a fully gloss black contrasting roof in Sportback models, both of which also feature gloss black door mirror housings. An additional black styling package also brings a gloss finish for the single frame front grille surround and a matt black finish for the grille, fog light surrounds and number plate holder. 

S line versions of the A1 are already marked out by exclusive S line exterior styling treatments for the grille, side sills and bumpers, and in S line Style Edition versions the more purposeful stance these create is further enhanced by xenon headlamps with distinctive LED daytime running lights and 17-inch ‘five V-spoke’ alloy wheels with a bi-colour finish, which replace the standard 17-inch ‘five twin-spoke’ S line wheels. A bi-colour ‘five-arm’ design is also available as a no-cost option. 

Inside the A1 S line Style Edition, the sleeves for the striking propeller-style air vents that are a focal point of the attractively sculpted A1 dashboard are finished in either Misano Red or Glacier White when these exterior colours are chosen, or in gloss black in conjunction with the Ice Silver and Phantom Black exterior options. These elements further emphasize the sporting tone set by the part-leather sports seats and three-spoke S line sports steering wheel. The S line equipment list also includes powered windows and mirrors, a split/folding rear seat, air conditioning, a Concert CD audio system incorporating an SD card reader linked to a 6.5-inch retractable display screen, a Bluetooth mobile phone interface and a Driver’s Information System. 

This attractive new specification is available in conjunction with three highly efficient engines from the A1 range – the 1.2 TFSI with 86PS, the 1.4 TFSI with 122PS and the 1.6 TDI with 105PS – all of which operate with the fuel-sparing benefit of engine start-stop and recuperation systems. The A1 1.6 TDI S line Style Edition arguably provides the ultimate combination of sporting style, keen performance and exceptional efficiency, with up to 74.3mpg possible according to the official combined cycle test, which equates to CO2 emissions of just 99g/km. 

The new Style Edition specification is the second in the A1 range to be based on the popular S line trim level. Range-topping Black Edition models, including upgrades such as 18-inch titanium finish alloy wheels, the 180-watt Audi sound system, privacy glass and electronic climate control, also build on the S line foundation, and are available in conjunction with two 1.4-litre TFSI engines – the 140PS version with Cylinder-on-Demand technology and the supercharged and turbocharged 185PS option – plus the 2.0-litre TDI with 143PS.
