Audi A1 options to choose and avoidImage 1 of 8

The Audi A1 Sportback is the smallest car its maker sells. It's a rival for everything from the Mini hatchback to the Volkswagen Polo; indeed, it shares many of its mechanical parts with the latter, as well as the Seat Ibiza. And both of those cars are excellent starting points for the A1; after all, the Ibiza is our former favourite small car, while the Polo is the reigning champion.

Our full 16-point review can tell you what the A1 is like to drive, how easy it is to live with and how much luggage it can hold, but here we're going to focus on which options you should choose when you're ordering one. And there are a lot to choose from, so knowing how to add those extra luxury touches without completely blowing your budget is a real bonus.
