Firm, supportive seats, lots of adjustment and an orderly dashboard with big, clear instruments – yes, this is a pure Audi. The windows aren’t very deep, but there's still plenty of glass area giving a good view out. A central control unit and screen give access to many of the car's functions, and it's easy to get used to.
Audi A1 Hatchback space & practicality
This isn’t the A1’s forte. While there’s plenty of space up front and the boot is a decent size and shape, the rear seats are best for children due to the dramatically sloping roofline. The rear seatbacks are almost vertical, so may be uncomfortable on long journeys.
Audi A1 Hatchback equipment
The trim choice is simple enough: SE, Sport and S line being the Audi norm. Alloys and air con are provided at the entry-level, but we’d recommend you buy the Sport, which adds Bluetooth and sports seats. Firmer suspension is also a feature, although switching to the softer SE setup is a no-cost option – and an adaptive system is also available at extra cost (it's standard if you opt for the S1). There are plenty of personalisation options on all versions.
