Audi has debuted a rugged version of its A1 supermini, dubbed the ‘citycarver’.

The citycarver rides 35mm taller than the regular A1, with larger alloy wheels fitted as standard to fill the arches.

Visually, the high-riding city car has been given an offroad-style update, with a bolder grille, front skid plate-like insert and wider wheel arches. There are also chunkier side skirts, in addition to a rear skid plate and a unique bumper treatment.

Inside, a choice of mint, copper, orange or grey accents are available, which feature around the air vents, centre console and door trim inserts. Technology is identical to the regular A1, meaning a 10.25-inch Virtual Cockpit digital instrument cluster, 10.1-inch central touchscreen and a plethora of active safety features.

Powering the tall hatch is expected to be the same lineup of turbocharged petrol engines as the base car, meaning 70kW and 85kW 1.0-litre three-cylinders, 110kW 1.5-litre four and a 147kW 2.0-litre four-pot. All variants are front-wheel-drive, with no quattro option in sight despite its rugged looks.
