Audi has taken the wraps off its new A1 supermini.
The new A1 will be available solely as a five-door Sportback model. It is 56mm longer than the outgoing car, and Audi is promising increased interior space as well as boot capacity up by 65 litres to 335 litres.
A high-resolution 10.25in driver instrument display and multifunction steering wheel are standard across the range.
A Navigation Pack and Technology Pack are available as options, with the former adding sat-nav with a 10.1in touchscreen and the higher-spec Virtual Cockpit instrument display, and the latter also adding online services and wireless charging.
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility is standard.
Standard driver assistance features include lane departure warning and autonomous emergency braking, while adaptive cruise control, a reversing camera and a park assist system are available as options.
At launch there will be a choice of three petrol engines - a 1.0-litre with 116hp, a 1.5-litre with 150hp and a 2.0-litre with 200hp - with a further 95hp petrol engine to follow.
All will come with a choice of manual or automatic transmission, except for the 200hp engine, which will come with an automatic gearbox as standard.
No diesel engine will be available.
The new A1 will be available to order in the UK in September, with the first deliveries in November.
Three trims will be offered - SE, Sport and S Line - along with two Launch Edition models.
Prices and full specifications are yet to be revealed.
