Audi A1 Hatchback 30 TFSI

Manufacturer price from:£18,540
What Car? Target Price:£18,009

So far, this is the only engine in the range. It’s a 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbocharged petrol unit with 114bhp, and it’s a frisky little thing, with a generous amount of shove from around 2000rpm, twinned with a keenness to keep pulling all the way to its 6000rpm-plus limiter. That makes it a flexible performer, so you don’t have to change gears continually to keep pace with traffic. It thrums away but is never coarse, and it comes with either a six-speed manual gearbox or optional seven-speed dual-clutch automatic.
