Audi AG unveiled a new concept today at the Paris Motor Show which runs from October 2-10. It look like it could be competition to the BMW 1-Series or Mini Cooper, but the new A1 Sportback concept is turning plenty of heads with hopes of future production and even sale in the US. The new concept is a five-door, four-seater car in the sub-compact class (the three-door was introduced in '07). It still has much of Audi's flare and characteristics, but in a small package at 13.09 ft long and 5.74 feet wide. In relation to a Mini Cooper, it's about 1 ft longer and mere inches wider. The design of the new A1 is what sets it apart though. The styling is dynamic and cutting-edge while the interior has been optimized for space and comfort.

Under the hood lies a four-cylinder turbocharged 150hp 1.4 TFSI motor with S tronic dual-clutch transmission. A 27hp electric motor is even integrated into the drivetrain to deliver up to 110.6 lb-ft when the A1 is accelerating. During boost, the engine and electric motor operate simultaneously to deliver the most power to the front wheels.

Earlier this year, Subaru announced the WRX STI would get a 5-horsepower boost for 2019. No, it wasn’t much, but at least the STI would no longer be outgunned by the turbocharged four-cylinder Mustang. Subaru’s latest special edition STI, however, comes with a much less underwhelming boost in power. It’s called the WRX STI TC 380, and
