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.

get the best price

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.

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. Available in both the Sportback and the Citycarver versions.
