Audi's A1 supermini will mark the first of its smaller cars to sport a three-cylinder petrol engine. The A3 will be the next model to receive the unit as well. According to CEO Rupert Stadler:
“In the A1 and the A3, the three-cylinder will be a standard engine in the future, for sure. It gives a good feeling and plenty of torque,” Stadler told Auto Express. Asked if the three-cylinder engine will arrive first on the A1, Stadler replied: “Yes, for sure.”
The Volkswagen Group already uses three-cylinder engines vehicles of the VW, Skoda and Seat brands. The facelifted VW Polo is offered with both a 1.0-liter TSI petrol and a 1.4-liter TDI diesel in the UK. Each produces 89 hp (90PS), but in the A1 three-cylinder units could be tweaked to deliver more power and torque.
Drivers know that car accidents can be really expensive in terms of paying for repairs especially when other drivers involved in such do not have any insurance of their own. When other drivers have not had insurance it meant the all insured driver would end up losing out financially, either by having to pay higher levels of excess or via higher premium costs. However there are now legal ways, in which costs can be recovered from the uninsured drivers involved in traffic accidents. Recovering costs is something that careful and insured drivers should do after uninsured drivers have caused or contributed to accidents.
