For The Audi A1 1.2 TFSI SE has a sweet, refined engine is great around town and not totally out of its depth elsewhere. SE trim brings the most supple chassis set-up for the best ride. Reasonably spacious and practical.
Against SE comes with 15-inch wheels, which look a bit lost on the car. High gearing in the interests of economy hampers driveability. Less agile than a Mini.
The Audi A1 1.2 TFSI SE is a mega-desirable small car that lives up to everything the Audi brand stands for, and in this guise it's the easiest to live with for driving on cratered town roads.
The Audi A1 is a former What Car? Car of the Year winner, and it still holds our Supermini of the Year title. That's impressive, but even so there are some versions that are better than others in our view.
The best all-rounder is the 1.4 TFSI in Sport trim, because it’s enjoyable to drive and has decent fuel economy, but whichever A1 you pick, it will hold its value well and provide a decent amount of equipment.
SE trim is noticeably cheaper than the rest of the range, but you don’t forego too many of the toys that make the A1 feel a little more special than some of its rivals. If you go for SE, look at adding Bluetooth connection for an extra £300, but don’t get carried away with the lengthy options list.
S line specification brings more equipment, but also suspension that is too stiff for our liking. Sport is a good compromise between comfort and kit, so that’s the one we’d go for.
