The interior layout, fit and finish

Driving position and dashboard

The Audi A1's seat, steering wheel and pedals are lined up as neatly as a team of synchronised swimmers. There's also a broad range of height and reach adjustment for the steering wheel.

If you want adjustable lumbar support to stop you slouching on longer journeys, though, you'll need to go for Sport trim or above so you get sports seats that hold you in place slightly better through corners.

Powerful LED headlights are fitted to every Audi A1 – all the better for illuminating the road ahead on those dark winter evenings.

Sat nav and infotainment

Even the cheapest Audi A1 trims come with an 8.8in infotainment touchscreen, and it’s positioned high up on the dashboard so you shouldn’t have trouble seeing or reaching it. That said, you inevitably have to glance away from the road to hit the screen's icons. The Mini’s iDrive rotary controller is much easier and less distracting to use while driving.

Every trim level comes with Bluetooth, a DAB radio and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone mirroring, so you can use selected apps on your smartphone, including sat nav apps such as Google Maps and Waze, via the car's touchscreen.
