Used Audi A1 2019 - present review


Review continues below...

What alternatives should I consider to a used Audi A1 hatchback?

If you like your small cars to feel premium then how about the five-door version of the Mini hatch? It won’t feel as agile as the A1, nor quite as comfortable at low speeds. However, it’s still relatively good fun to drive and has an easier to use infotainment system than the touchscreen affair in the Audi.

Audi probably won’t be too happy with this, but you can actually get pretty much all the qualities of the A1 in a slightly cheaper form with the Volkswagen Polo. True, it does without the fancy LED lights and digital speedo and rev counter (unless you find a Polo packed with options), but it’ll still be very comfortable to drive and because it uses the same engines, just as efficient.
