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.
