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

The Mini is perhaps a little more fun in terms of both the way it handles and how it is styled. It will also have a better infotainment system, being based on BMW’s iDrive. However, it is only the most recent version of the Mini that you can buy with five doors, so the Audi is slightly more practical.

The Alfa Romeo Mito has great looks, but it falls short of the A1 in almost every other regard. It will come with more equipment, though, and for a cheaper price.

The Fiat 500 is a funky little city car, ideally suited to those who have limited parking as you can slot this car into the tightest of on-street spaces. It doesn’t have the same build quality as the Audi but, as it doesn’t cost quite as much, it’s acceptable.
