A1 gets new S line trim, Astra estate production reaches quarter of a million at Ellesmere Port

Audi has revealed a new trim level for its A1 supermini. The new S line Style edition adds new equipment, including metallic paint and xenon headlamps. S line Style is available in conjunction with 1.2 TFSI, 1.4 TFSI and 1.6 TDi engines.

Workers at Vauxhall's Ellesmere Port plant have celebrated two production milestones for the company - 250,000 Astra Sports Tourers have now been built at the site, while 900,000 Vivaro-type vans have been produced at Vauxhall's Luton plant.

Shame Ford UK don't offer the 5dr Fiesta ST in the picture, that would be a cool car! As for the A1 S Line Style, lovely trim but only offered up to 122PS and not with the bigger 140/ 185 PS engines unfortunately.

The 5dr offers more practicallity, but adds another 60kg.  Having only been recently released, seems a bit early for the Fiesta ST power upgrade.

Will 212 be too much? Wonder why they haven't launched it with the American 197 engine

    The all-paw M550i is a fast, effortless mile-muncher, but there's a reason why it won't be sold in the UK
