Audi A1

Audi A1

The Audi A1 was our overall Car of the Year in 2011, and has featured consistently in our awards ever since. It's a small car with the premium feel of a bigger Audi, which makes it one of the classiest and most desirable cars in this class.

You get a stylish cabin, with an elegant dashboard, a sporty steering wheel and a comfortable driving position. Meanwhile, if you opt for Sport trim, the suspension balance is just right; firm but comfortable, with agile handling.

On top of that the 121bhp 1.4-litre petrol model is a willing and flexible performer, and refinement is first class, with very little noise entering that smart cabin.

Okay, the A1 isn't cheap to buy, but its residual values are stronger than most of its rivals', and it won't cost you a fortune to run. Standard kit in Sport trim is more than generous, too.

With its high-quality feel, stylish looks and refined engine, the A1 is an undeniably class act.
