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

This is our preferred trim level. It adds Bluetooth, sat-nav, a leather-covered steering wheel, sports seats (including lumbar adjustment) and aluminium interior highlights to SE’s kit roster. You also get stiffer suspension, which is a bit too firm for our liking – but you can revert to SE’s softer set-up as a no-cost option. Sport trim is also available with our favourite engine, the 1.4 TFSI 125.

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.
