In addition to the potent powerplant, expect a series of weight saving modifications and a standard quattro all-wheel drive system. A six-speed manual is also likely to be standard, though a seven-speed S tronic dual clutch unit may be offered as an option. That proves that Audi can fit the 2.5 liter TFSI unit into the A1’s engine bay with a quattro system and a six-speed manual gearbox too. But output will likely be dialed to much less than the 340 PS (250 kW / 335 hp) and 450 Nm (332 lb ft) of torque of the 2.5 TFSI unit on the Audi TT-RS and RS3 models.
