Review

The Audi A1 is a fine car – it's great to drive, comfortable to sit in and is available with lots of big car options. However, if you can live without a posh badge, the Peugeot 208 and VW Polo offer slightly more for less.

Trim: Citycarver

The Citycarver version tries to mimic an SUV's stance, and gets that butch-looking body-cladding and extra ground clearance. Unless you’re sold on the styling, though, it’s hard to justify its significant price premium.

Engine: 30 TFSI

The 30 TFSI is a 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol with 114bhp and performance is more than adequate. It pulls well from around 2000rpm and, if you let the revs build to 6000rpm before changing gear, 0-60mph takes 9.1sec.
