  • Audi A1 Sportback (2012 - 2018)
    Longer, five door A1 is more practical than three door. Same efficient engines as the three-door. Desirable image. Enjoyable to drive. At its best with 1.4 TFSI engine.
  • Audi A1 (2010 - 2015)
    Chic and sporty looks plus a classy interior. Enjoyable to drive. Efficient chain cam petrol engines, plenty of scope for personalisation. Well equipped. 99g/km 1.6 TDI from 2011.
