The S1 Quattro is powered by the well-known 2.0 liter TFSI – 231HP (170 kW) and 370Nm (273 lb-ft) of torque. The power is sent to the road through Quattro all-wheel drive system. 0-100 km/h in 5.8 seconds for the small S1 and the Sportback is 0.1 seconds slower, because of the extra weight.

There are also 17” alloy wheels fitted with 215/40 R17 tires. The 18” wheels with 225/35 R18 are optional. There are also xenon plus headlights combined with LED taillights, 310mm front discs and S1 logo.
