Audi A1 hatchback (2018 - )

As the most affordable and attainable car Audi makes, the A1 is a very appealing prospect. That’s helped in no small part by sharp looks, decent practicality, nimble handling, punchy engines and impressive economy. This is a good small car that fashion-conscious buyers will be very happy with.

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

The A1 may be the most affordable Audi there is, but even when compared to the most premium of premium small cars, it’s not a cheap car. The base price is a fair chunk more than the equivalent Mini’s, although with both cars, you’ll probably spend a bunch more money on optional extras. From then on, though, things get a lot better for the A1.

It’s a good bit more efficient than the Mini, which means more miles out of a tank of fuel and lower tax bills, and it’ll hold its value every bit as well as the Mini, if not better, meaning you’ll get a decent chunk of cash back when you sell it on. So, although you’ll pay handsomely to get your hands on an A1, it is a sound financial investment.
