Audi A1 Hatch Leasing
The Audi A1 Supermini is Worth Every Penny....
Since becoming the number one aspirational super mini, Audi’s must have A1 has gone from strength to strength. Despite demanding a slightly deeper pockets, the A1 has climbed to the top of the mountain of small cars, outshining its little cousin, the Volkswagen Polo. While small cars used to be considered as an option for drivers with moderate budgets, that’s no longer the case. Small, super-minis have now become more of a lifestyle choice now, often giving the nod to environmental consciousness and convenience.
At first look, from phase one to the current model, the A1 has always carried its unmistakable shape. Even de-badged, many consumers will recognise the A1. The latest model has been revamped to carry a slightly more edgy and sporty look. What’s nice though is that the A1 is hugely customisable with a contrasting roof line, which looks high end with the polished tailpipes and front fog lights. If you’re willing to dip a little deeper into the pockets, the Sline trim is takes the swanky looks even further.
Moving through to the engines, our favorite is the 1.4 TFSI, which offers the perfect balance of performance and efficiency. The 148 BHP engine is a punchy, providing plenty of power when its needed for such a small chassis.
If you are looking for even more punch though, the Audi S1 is loaded with a 2.0 252 BHP engine. Drivers considering the A1 Sline though should be mindful that the ride is harsher than a lot of other superminis.
As with any Audi, the A1 is positioned as a prestige product and that’s really telling in the interior. Smart contrast sporty seats, etched in leather and high grade plastics make this car noticeably more polished than more low cost options. The infotainment system is good (but not great, given that BMW’s superb iDrive system exists). That being said, it does everything that’s needed, its just not quite as intuitive or as high definition.
While the A1 isn’t cheap and some will scoff at the space in the rear seating or boot, drivers will be encouraged by Audi’s prestige and quality cabin feel. If that isn’t enough, its new sporty looks will put it over the top, so much so that you’ll feel glad you digged a little deeper into your pockets.
