For anyone needing a supermini with technology and interior quality that matches that of a luxury saloon, then the Audi A1 is for you. In a competitive segment, the A1 manages to stand out from the crowd.
There's no doubt that the A1 is a quality production from Audi with a range of economic diesel and petrol engines available. It's also a great car to drive on motorways and long journeys with high comfort levels.
Drivers will find that the 1.0 litre turbocharged petrol engine, which has three cylinders, is frugal and will return around 67 mpg while having emissions of 97g/km. There's also a 1.6 litre diesel unit that should return 81 mpg.
No matter which engine is chosen, the A1 offers excellent levels of performance and handling; the car is great that speed corners with lots of grip and a rewarding drive.
As should be expected, there's lots of equipment fitted on the A1 as standard including stop/start, 6.5in touchscreen with DAB radio and alloy wheels. Other trims also come with sports suspension, Bluetooth connectivity, Xenon lights, sports seats and LED interior lights.
There’s also a very good list of options including cruise control, satnav, parking sensors and automatic lights.
For drivers who enjoy a sportier performance, there is a Sport spec that has a firm suspension for agile handling and the car is an example of everything that Audi do well.
For drivers who would prefer a great little car with five doors, Audi also make the excellent A1 Sportback. It might cost slightly more than the three door model but it has an excellent interior and more practicality.
Essentially, anyone looking for a small car that has style, ability and low running costs, the Audi A1 really does prove that great things do come in small packages.
