The wheelbase measures 2.47 meters (8.10 meters), the same roof short.
Design Audi A1 is perfectly integrated into the language and unique brand in compact segment – emotional, courageous and progressive. Audi has a reputation for having lots of ideas and innovations from concept car into mass production, and the Audi A1 continue this tradition. Many features and innovative ideas from the year 2007 the Audi A1 project quattro already showcar has made mass production in the Audi A1.
Front bears a clear family resemblance, but the accent unique features and innovations in the details. The single frame grille, for instance, is integrated into the front and with the upper corner represents a new stage of evolution. The key horizontally arranged to emphasize the wide front. Large plastic model of air aspiration with a horizontal bar also contribute to the sporty image of the Audi A1. Fog lights on their outer corners.
Three-dimensional light force also has a special view. Audi A1 is determined and focused on the road. A strong curved wing structure in the light. As with all Audis, the light in the daytime running is standard. With the optional xenon plus units, lights daytime running lights are implemented using LED and guidance.

Audi axiom also applies to the Audi A1: Agency providing quality foundation, for the proper handling, sportsmanship and safety. Two-thirds of the body consists of high and ultra high strength steel of different strength classes.
The strongest of these steels in the form of heat. The blanks are heated in a fire at extreme temperatures directly in the form of water-cooled die pressing. This rapid temperature changes confer resistance to extreme stress. Hot steel in a good way to make 11 percent of the body. They are used to lower the bar in the footwell, in the end of the stringers, in the B-pillar and roof frame – either extreme resistance combined with low weight is very important.
High and ultra high strength steel is an important factor for high torsional rigidity and reduce weight only 221 kilograms (487.22 pounds).
