Audi A1 Sportback is a Luxury Eco-Rocket

The United States is a big place.  Not an original observation, I know, but hear me out.  Composed of somewhere between seven and ten regions, or countries within a country, the landscape of the US is one of wide open spaces, monumental mountain ranges, deep scarring canyons, and dense towering urban centers where the modern skyscraper was birthed and forged in the midst of our vast industrial empire.  And that might be just one state.  Its a big place.

This sort of massive landscape affects the way in which we as Americans view the world.  We are used to a surplus of property and materials, hence you don’t have to through a rock too far in any direction before hitting a ranch or an over sized pickup truck.  Micro items, such as small apartment dwellings and hyper-efficient cars used to be the butt of jokes in the States, thought of as far too European at best.  But nowadays as people are tightening their belts due to both economic contraction as well as heightened environmental awareness, even luxury items are starting to look better and better in smaller packages.  Take the Audi A1 Sportback for example.

The Audi A1 Sportback is a luxury crossover that offers a good deal of power and luxury within a contained and economical package.  This five door crossover hatchback will be available with the same six engine options as its smaller three-door sibling.  That means buyers will be able to lay their hands on an A1 Sportback Five Door with a 1.4-liter turbocharged gasoline four-cylinder good for 185 horsepower.  There are also three diesel engine options available for those who require a little extra fuel economy.

The mileage is currently estimated at over 50 mpg, with a starting price just above $20k.  This price sets it between the Honda Insight and the Toyota Prius.  It will likely fall in between the two in gas mileage as well.  The Audi A1 Sportback offers a fine and luxurious alternative to the other eco-efficient green vehicles in its price range.  Within a fleet of white hybrid hatchback, the highly stylized Audi A1 Sportback stands out in the crowd.

The Audi A1 Sportback is scheduled to land upon the sandy shores of the Phoenix Valley area any minute now, so stayed tune to Vroom for updates.  Phoenix Valley auto enthusiasts can stop by their local Phoenix Valley Audi dealer to view any of the current luxury production line up.
