The Audi A1 is an appealing small car with an upmarket interior and pert handling, but it's starting to feel its age elsewhereread the full model review
Trim:S Line Nav
One of the most extreme of the A1’s regular trim levels, S line brings sports-focused styling modifications rather than a much longer standard equipment list. You get a bodykit, 17in alloy wheels, part-leather sports seats and xenon headlights. It has an even stiffer suspension set-up than Sport – although, again, you can go for the softer SE set-up at no cost. We don’t think there’s enough extra useful kit here to warrant the additional charge over the Sport model, so we’d give it a miss.
This three-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine has a respectable 94bhp, and while it’s comfortable enough for urban use, it can feel a little underpowered if you’re trying to make brisk progress on faster roads. It is efficient, with CO2 emissions of less than 100g/km with the standard five-speed manual gearbox fitted. A seven-speed automatic is optional.
