Attached Image The Audi A1 has just been revealed and rumours of when its hotter variant has surfaced. The hot hatch is set to make an appearance in late 2019.

According to Autocar, the S1 is set get an uprated version of the VW Group's 2.0-litre turbocharged unit. It aims to become the most powerful hot hatch among its competitors, pushing around 250bhp from its TFSI four-cylinder engine.

Combined with the latest MQB A0 platform, the car should also offer a better driving experience.

It remains unclear whether the upcoming Audi S1 will get a manual transmission but judging from the 197bhp 2.0-litre A1 40 TFSI that is only available with a dual-clutch gearbox, chances are slim.
