The A1’s boot capacity, in both three- and five-door versions, is 270 litres; that’s enough for a decent-sized load of shopping, but not quite enough for a full set of golf clubs or one of the more bulky baby buggies. The A1’s offering isn’t remarkable, although it is larger than you’ll find in a three-door Mini.
This capacity expands to 920 litres with the rear seats folded down, and even the extended boot has a reasonably flat floor. There’s a fair-sized boot lip to lift heavier items over, though, unless you specify the optional luggage pack that adds a height-adjustable boot floor.
The S1’s boot is smaller with the rear seats up or down, due to the extra gubbins of its four-wheel-drive system.
