The Audi A1 is an appealing small car with an upmarket interior and pert handling, but it's starting to feel its age elsewhere

read the full model review

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 four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine has plenty of low-rev shove, so it always feels capable of making the A1 go pretty swiftly. It’s resonably refined, albeit with a sporty, gravelly note under hard acceleration. It shouldn’t use much fuel, thanks to cylinder deactivation technology that shuts down two cylinders when cruising. Acceptably low CO2 emissions mean it doesn’t cost much in company car tax, either. A six-speed manual gearbox is standard, with a seven-speed automatic available as an option.
