The 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.

Range-topping trim gets 18in alloys, a contrasting black roof and a black exterior styling pack along with privacy glass. Unless you love the looks, there’s little reason to recommend this expensive trim level.

This 148bhp 1.5-litre petrol gets into its stride even earlier than the 30 TFSI, at around 1500rpm, so not only is it faster outright it's also more flexible. It's considerably more expensive, though.
