What used Audi A2 hatchback will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Audi A2 hatchback?

The A2 isn't as cheap to buy used as some cars of this size because its prestige badge and desirability mean it holds its value tenaciously from new. Whichever version you choose, you'll be forking a lot of cash.

It's much better news on running costs. Fuel economy is terrific on every model thanks to lightweight construction and frugal engines.

Insurance costs are quite reasonable, too. Both the 1.4 petrol and diesel come with a group five insurance rating, and the 1.6 sits in group eight. As you might expect with an Audi, you'll pay more for routine servicing than you would for other cars of a similar size.

When you've bought your A2, be very careful how you drive it. The aluminium construction may have huge benefits in other areas, but it makes bodyshop repairs very slow and very expensive. Even the slightest prang can be costly to fix.
