Audi S1 to be Unveiled at Geneva Motor Show

Audio will also unveil new TT at the show

Audi has announced that it will unveil the S1 hatchback at the Geneva Motor Show in March. The car will use a 230hp turbo 2.0L engine that is used in the Audi S3 and will have AWD standard. The picture here is from Autoexpress and is said to be the actual car. It looks nice, but it is hard to tell how large the car is. It almost looks like it’s Fiat 500 in size.

The car will have a dual-clutch S Tronic transmission offered with a 6-speed manual available. Most of the details on the car are unknown at this time since it hasn’t been officially unveiled.

Audi will also be launching a new TT at the show. The new S1 will hit dealerships in the UK in May. Pricing is unannounced, but it is expected to start at around £27,000. That would put it close in price to the VW Golf GTI.

GM Issues Recalls For Six New Vehicle Recalls
This probably won’t surprise anyone, but we have a number of racers, track-day junkies, and vintage-car owners on staff, so tow vehicles are highly prized around our office. While there are many fine trucks suited to such tasks, Chevrolet’s Silverado won our most recent pickup truck comparison test, making it our top choice in the segment. But we’re slightly vain, so naturally we settled upon that rig’s better-dressed sibling, the GMC Sierra. Here’s how we’d spec it: MODEL: GMC Sie ...

Stuff Happens Media Call
There is an awful lot of variety out there in the automotive world, as consumers can select from minute micro-cars to gigantic leviathan SUVs.
