A great car for new drivers should be easy to drive, cost-effective and very safe. The Audi A1 is all those things and more. It has all the style and premium quality you’d expect of any Audi, but boiled down into a stylish little hatchback.
The A1 took our Best Car for New Drivers award ahead of the Ford Focus and another car from Audi, the A3. No matter which version of the A1 you choose, you’ll get five-door practicality, plenty of standard equipment including alloy wheels and air conditioning, and up to 50mpg fuel economy. Plus a five-star safety rating. As one delighted owner put it: “we were looking for a reliable, durable and small car… and to be honest since we have bought this car we are so happy. It's very safe for kids and can be parked anywhere. I couldn't be happier about this car.” High praise. Return to the Auto Trader New Car Awards Homepage
