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

Trim:

SE

Entry-level SE trim gets some decent standard equipment, including 15in alloy wheels, rear parking sensors, cruise control, air-con, a 6.5in colour infotainment screen and a DAB radio. There are a couple of caveats; you’ll have to pay extra for Bluetooth and there’s the choice of just two engines – the 1.0 petrol or 1.6 diesel, neither of which is our pick of the range. This is a decent entry point to the A1 line-up, but there are better options if you can afford the extra.

Engine:

1.6 TDI

The sole diesel option in the range has enough power and low-down shove to make the car feel brisk – and you shouldn’t have to work it too hard to maintain normal progress. That’s lucky, because this engine is also gruff and noisy. Like the entry-level petrol, it is available with a five-speed manual or seven-speed automatic gearbox.
