Audi A1 fans who are looking for a more practical version of the super mini hatchback has just gotten their wish fulfilled. Courtesy of Russian website Cars.ru, the production form of the 5-door model has been revealed for the very first time. The German carmaker had teased the five-door body style at the 2008 Paris Motor Show with the A1 Sportback Concept.

According to the author of the article, the exterior dimensions of the Sportback remain almost the unchanged, which means we can expect the car to measure at 3.95m long, 1.42m tall and 1.75m wide with a wheelbase of 2.47m. The exterior styling is not going to send your jaws dropping after you have seen the regular A1. There is nothing special other than a roof that can be specified with contrasting colors. XL individuals can be thankful that it is now easier to access the rear seats.

The A1 Sportback will be available in Europe with the same engine lineup as the three door model, which means the 1.2 TFSI, 1.4 TFSI turbocharged petrol engines and the 1.6-liter TDI diesel. The new A1 Sportback will most likely receive its world premiere at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show on 30 November, which is not far away.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
