Audi A1 and A3 now available with ‘Cylinder-on-Demand’

The already-efficient Audi A1 and A3 models are now available with Audi’s revolutionary Cylinder-on-Demand (CoD) technology. Adapted from the Audi S and RS series, CoD automatically shuts down half the engine’s cylinders when they’re not required, instantly re-engaging them as soon as you press firmly on the accelerator – hence Cylinder-on-Demand.
With the 1.4 TFSI engine, this really does mean the best of both worlds: 140PS and 250Nm torque when it’s needed, while achieving up to 60.1mpg with CO2 emissions as low as 109g/km. Who says you can’t have your cake, and eat it?

Cylinder-on-Demand key points

  • Virtually imperceptible switch between two and four cylinder mode takes as little as 13 milliseconds
  • No compromise on performance: 0-62mph in 7.9 seconds and top speed of 132mph in A1 1.4 TFSI S tronic
  • Diesel economy in a petrol engine: lower purchase and fuelling costs than the 2.0 TDI
  • Intelligent system engages four cylinder mode when braking or travelling downhill, for maximum safety
  • Premium of just £850 above 1.4 TFSI non-COD equivalents

Audi Cylinder on Demand is available on the A1, A1 Sportback, A3 and A3 Sportback:
