Audi managing director Julius Seebach said the company has no plans for an RS version of the A1 subcompact hatchback. Interestingly, the matter is not only in economic inexpediency
The top manager explained that such a decision is certainly justified by the economic inexpediency of small “charged” cars. However, at the same time, there is a reluctance of the sports division of the Audi RS to develop a four-cylinder engine, while the line has a five-in-line.
Seebach stressed that the five-cylinder turbo engine, which is mounted on the RS3, will remain the basic power unit for RS models, since the in-line “five” 2.5 is a “sub-brand legacy”. For more compact models, the RS sports division would have to work with small engines, but the fours are not included in the brand’s plans.
