Scoring big points on the style register, the A1 is a supermini with a luxurious difference. It is the most compact model in Audi’s range of hatchbacks, making it the ideal choice for those who want an everyday car without compromising on sophistication.
Exuding Audi’s distinctive looks, the A1 has a similar profile to others in the range, defined by a large grille and slender, angular headlights. It is essentially a condensed version of the A3 with three doors, a shorter bonnet and a compressed frame. All trim levels come with body-coloured door mirrors that are heated and electrically adjustable, for added practicality and a chic finish. Sophisticated options include Xenon headlights, with LED daytime running lights, and privacy glass.
It may be a minimalist supermini, but inside it is clear the A1 is still an Audi at heart. Designed with driver convenience in mind, the interior has a cockpit style with everything you need close to hand. A centre console that’s home to the gearstick comes with two cup holders and a 12V socket. There’s also a 6.5-inch MMI display screen which allows you to manage the DAB digital radio, CD player and optional satellite navigation with one hand. The Sport, S line and Black Edition trim levels have telephone connectivity with voice controls. As the most advanced trim level, the Black Edition comes with an Audi sound system which has six loudspeakers and a six-channel amplifier.
The petrol engines have turbo fuel stratified injection technology while the diesel variants have turbocharged direct injection systems for improved fuel efficiency. Choices range from 1.0 to 1.4-litre, the smallest delivering 93.7bhp and the most powerful yielding 148bhp. Top speeds vary from 116mph to 134mph, demonstrating the speed and agility of the supermini.
All trim levels have the same high-quality range of safety equipment. Electronic Stability Control will keep you steady on the roads even when driving fast and round tough corners. Secondary collision brake assist helps to stop the car after any collision to reduce further impact. Praised by Euro NCAP, this technology is a feat of engineering that is proven to improve the A1’s safety. The most basic trim level, the SE, has dynamic suspension while the Sport, the S Line and Black Edition have advanced sport suspension for a more agile drive.
