Audi has taken its smallest car and created a crossover version.
The A1 Citycarver (I’m not convinced by the name either) raises the car’s standard ride height by a couple of inches and gives it a more rugged appearance.
It’s not as off-road focussed as Audi’s bigger Allroad models and is primarily aimed at urban dwellers who want a higher driving position.
It’s available with two petrol engines taken from the A1 line-up: the 114bhp 1.0-litre, three-cylinder turbocharged 30 TFSI engine, or the larger 148bhp 1.5-litre 35 TFSI.
Nine colours will be available, with a choice of black or grey contrasting roof, and there are three trim levels.
Audi hasn’t released prices for the Citycarver but it goes on sale in September.
