This car makes you feel cool
AUDI A1 1.4 TFSI Sport 3dr (Review date: 29th March '13)
I've had so much fun in this car and it makes me feel good every time I drive. An amazing combination of MPG and performance with all the technology you need. No point in buying any other super mini when you can run this car for peanuts with a massive smile on your face for the entire time. Also it really does feel like a much bigger car and can be very relaxing to drive if the mood takes you.
Small Car, big Heart.
AUDI A1 1.4 TFSI Sport 3dr (Review date: 10th March '13)
I've owned my A1 from new for 2 years. Expensive paint job (Red with Silver roofline) looks great and won't get lost in a car park.
Used mainly in town but it gets to stretch its legs on M-ways occasionally. I've never had even the slightest problem with it and manage around 400 to 450 miles range. I'm sure cruise control & the driver information system contribute to that economy. I opted for heated leather seats, comfort pack and media style pack with an ipod connection. The interior is stylish and easy to live with while my 'Concert' radio has an extra SD card slot for my entire collection of music. Ride is a little firm but not annoying, handling is taut on lowered suspension and the engine is very peppy in all but 6th gear.
Rear seat headroom is a little tight while the boot can take a weeks shopping but only one large suitcase. My only gripe is the lack of a spare wheel which does increase my anxiety levels on the occasional long trip. All in all though, very easy to live with.
Update on Honest review
AUDI A1 1.6 TDI Sport 3dr (Review date: 21st September '12)
I have now completed 23k and the car has grow on me. Economy is an average 68 on long journeys with 50 around town. The car is very comfortable but I would still prefer climate control rather that the manual AC. The Driving position is not the best (6ft male) but I have now got used to it. Nevertheless the build quality is outstanding and I have not found another car that can match the Audi A1 for economy, comfort or quality. Very please with the whole package. And I do not pay road tax, which is an added bonus.
A1 Sportback 5 door 1.6D Sport
AUDI A1 1.6 TDI Sport 5dr (Review date: 31st May '12)
Swapped from a Mini and although a little less fun, it is a grown up car. We also have an Audi A4 and the driver's experience (knobs, toys, seat, sat-nav etc) is the same - feels like a luxury saloon. There is more room in the boot and back seats than a Mini and the five door option is worth the extra.
If getting the Sport trim, opt for the (basic) dynamic suspension. We did and although harder than the A4, still rides speed humps better than the Mini and sticks to the corners just as well. Very economical diesel with plenty of torque, but does not like to be thrashed - the Mini loved a good hard drive, but the A1 Diesel does not; it is grown up after all.
Audi A1 1.4 tfsi Sport (122 bhp)
AUDI A1 1.4 TFSI Sport 3dr (Review date: 2nd March '12)
Have owned the car for 6 months now, and am pleased with most aspects of it. It rides well, a little firmer than I would like, but still comfortable. The seats are superb and are brilliant even on long journeys. I opted for a few extras including a sunroof, xenon lights and ipod connection, all of which make a big difference and make it a much more pleasurable drive, particularly the sunroof which has been used a lot over the past few weeks.
Build quality and interior comfort are absolutely perfect. Everything feels solid, and none of the materials used feel cheap. The styling of the car is what I love most though. It has an aggressive look to it, and sits quite low on low profile wheels.
The performance is impressive. The 1.4 turbo engine provides a decent amount of power low down in the rev range, bringing it up to 60 in 9 seconds, which is quite impressive for the size of the engine. Having 6 gears means it will happily cruise at 80 or 90 on the motorway though, making it pleasant on long journeys.
However the economy is not so good. The claimed average mpg is 54 but to be honest you will be hard pushed to reach that even on a motorway. I do mostly town driving but also motorway driving, and have been averaging 30mpg, which for a car of this size is not very impressive. It costs £50 to fill and will do about 260 miles to a tank.
The handling is OK, but it doesn't stick to the road that well, and seems to under-steer a lot when it's being driven hard, but that's expected from a front wheel drive car.
Driving's a pleasure again!!!
AUDI A1 1.4 TFSI Sport 3dr (Review date: 24th February '12)
After some 40 years of driving solid, reliable, stodgy Citreons I have recently been nagged into changing car. I am now an Audi 1.4 TFSI Sport driver and enjoy any excuse to drive - it's now a pleasure, no longer a chore.
The Audi A1 is reliable and has a number of fuel saving features, together with a great sound system. Though smallish it is roomy enough for my wife and I and is very comfortable. To quote my daughter, it has enough oomph to get you out of trouble if neccessary.
To sum this car up, it is
Boot enough for shopping
Fun to drive.

AUDI A1 1.4 TFSI Sport 3dr (Review date: 8th February '12)
Absolutely love this car!
Had it for a year now, always a pleasure to drive. Usual fantastic Audi build quality, never done anything but be 100% reliable thus far.
Best compromise between power and economy in my opinion. The 1.4 turbo engine picks up beautifully when asked, and still returns 40 mpg on local stuff and 55 mpg on a run...marvellous!
Boot would be a little small if used as a family car, but with the back seats down the load space is very generous. Suits us perfectly!
Love the way you feel you are in a bigger and more luxurious car when inside...no compromise from Audi on build quality for their smallest car.
Can't imagine what I would change this for, so am likely to keep it for many years...
Audi A1 - A car for any lifestyle!
AUDI A1 1.4 TFSI Sport 3dr (Review date: 20th January '12)
My Audi A1 is a dream to drive. It handles well, has a stylish, excellently finished interior with the curved seats scoring 10/10 for support and comfort. Both short and long drives are exciting and fun in my A1.
As for cost, the A1 fell into a fairly low insurance band for me and is cheap on tax (free for the first year). As for fuel consumption, although the A1 isn’t quite as economical as I had hoped I think that may have a little to do with the way I drive it as there is a noticeable difference in fuel consumption when the car is driven conservatively - what can I say? I see an open road; I just can’t resist seeing what my car can do and hearing the roar of the engine.
The A1 won my heart over with its interior! It is stylish and gorgeous; the display screen and steering wheel controls make for easy music control. I have the connectivity pack added to mine - and while I was at first unsure about the extra cost of this pack, it was worth every penny of it in my eyes. It means I am never left without good background music! As for the in car telephone - I had always hated these, finding them to have a time lag and come across fuzzy and difficult to hear. Well, not anymore! I am completely converted; the Bluetooth phone option in my A1 is fantastically clear and can be completely controlled via the steering wheel.
To conclude, if you are looking for a cheap, comfortable, stylish drive then look no further than an Audi A1.
Great little car, good on running costs, very nippy
AUDI A1 1.4 TFSI S Line 3dr (Review date: 19th January '12)
Great looking car that although small feels like a grown up Audi, solid and reliable, with a real Audi feel inside.
Running cost are excellent, with free road tax for the fist year. Fuel consumption excellent considering this car is mainly used around town. Stop / start facility good when in traffic and environmentally friendly.
Boot space is ample for day to day, however small for suitcases or anything larger, however the rear seats fold down and split and therefore not an issue if only 2 /3 pax.
Excellent drive, sporty feel, quite a hard drive, with excellent acceleration speeds for a small engine.
