A small car with Audi qualities is immediately cast as a desirable thing. The fact that the A1 is also good to drive and live with was enough for us to name it  our Car of The Year in 2011. Two years on, the A1 now looks superb value as a used buy. 

The 121bhp 1.4-litre petrol engine is strong and frugal – the A1 will do 0-60mph in 9.0 seconds, an average of 53.3mpg, and emit just 124g/km of CO2 (£105pa road tax). The high-quality cabin has rear legroom enough for all but the very tall. 

Sport trim adds sports seats, Bluetooth and larger 16-inch alloy wheels to the A1’s standard electric windows and air-conditioning.
