this seems like a good deal to me for a well reviewed family hatchback? Has a good spec and excellent MPG

Its a Turbo engine with 115bhp so wouldn't be too bad on the motorway.

A lot of newer cars have small engines with turbos to help with MPG

yes, but the rpm will be higher it may have a turbo but it's still a 1.0

RPM? That depends on the gearing.

Not powerful enough with a 1.0, despite the BHP there's only 2 cyclinders in this family hatchback.

Thanks. Basic model but good price.

Pretty sure it has 3 cyl.

Agreed. Have driven a similar 1.0 focus and you need to constantly thrash the engine to get any speed out of it. Consequently the MPG is hopeless and nowhere near the manufacturers claims.

You might be disappointed when the SE spec car doesn't look much like the S3 in the picture.

The 1.0 in the focus is no way similar to the Audi. The audi has a lot more torque.

Are you sure?? Figures? Just because it's an Audi, don't assume it's better at anything - more likely to be worse if anything.

More power, more torque, faster to 62, better in every way.

200 Nm torque between 2000/3500 RPM - that's the useful bit of the rev range.
9.7 secs to 62 - pretty reasonable as well.

It's a fairly decent drive.

Havent you heard?

There's no replacement for displacement...

I'm amused about the comments I see about these low capacity engines.

In my experience they are better that the old normally aspirated 1.6 and 1.8 engines they replace in almost every way - more torque, better power delivery, better economy

Nice. Still the basic model though

6 speed gearbox so thrashing the engine on the motorway isn't likely to be an issue

does anyone know what the arrangement fee might be?

Someone should the F1 teams that their tiny 1.6l engines are useless for a racing car.

50 years ago lots of cars had huge inefficient engines that couldn't compete with this 1.0.
My manager at work has a 1.0 fiesta that outperforms my 1.9 diesel Audi A5.

What more do you need (admittedly, I've just ordered the larger model with Adaptive lighting, memory seats & wifi, but they're nice to have toys, not stuff you actually need)

I agree, only worth looking at the Audi S3 which is still really cheap. Select Car Leasing have the Audi S3 deal

Yeah but your A5 weight about 1600kg when his Fiesta around 1100kg and that make a massive difference

There're two focus models with the 1.0 ecoboost, one with 101bhp and one with 125bhp (and 200Nm torque). I suspect the latter would be a similar drive to this audi and it may well be the former that ycsb referred to earlier...

It's a shame cars have become a disposable commodity, no doubt the turbo has to work pretty hard to get 115hp out of a 1 litre engine and it will go probably go pop after 100k.

plus its also a lot down to the driver how you shift
It is obvious enough that car sales these days are down to savings -" small engine, no tax, less insurance, more economy etc" Considering congestion on motorways, cities, and cameras you will do max 70mph anyway so why to put big engine? Want bigger buy premium class this is now how they do stuff... So want bigger engine prepare to spend more (_;) As somebody mentioned here on these small engines gearing is carefully selected so you do feel plenty power in it. But once fully loaded you notice that everything slows down a lot too:|

djames108

yes, but the rpm will be higher it may have a turbo but it's still a 1.0


I don't think you know what you're talking about pal.

8000 a year or throughout?

Same as the clutch, brakes, exhaust, cambelt and Cat maybe. Everything needs servicing and replacing at some time or another

Three times the power of my first car which was perfectly capable of exceeding the speed limit on the motorway. How much power do people need (seems most Audis have all the power they need to push the traffic out the way).
