Audi A1: baby with a character

The Audi A1 looks like a little baby compared to other models of the famous German brand. Large sedans look grand compared to it. However, the appearance of the five-door hatchback is sporty and aggressive.

We can hardly call the interior luxurious. Everything is simple here without any expensive details. When you look at the central console, there is a feeling of emptiness: as if something is missing there. Sportiness is even inside the car. Thanks to the round deflector it looks like you are inside of a sports car.

But, despite the simplicity of the interior, the level of comfort is high. There are enough options, the sound insulation is great. Moreover, the sound system has quality sound.

Spaciousness is satisfactory. There are no complaints to the front seats – they are quite big. But there is not enough space at the rear. Not enough space for three people.

The standard version has a 1.4-litre turbocharged engine TFSI with 125 hp. It accelerates to 100 in 8.9 seconds. The more powerful version has a 1.8-litre engine and 192 hp. It accelerates to 100 in 6.9 seconds. The results are impressive.

The Audi A1 is designed for quiet driving. when you sit at the wheel, you realise it. The car has a sport character. The suspension gives you a bit of discomfort with such sporty qualities. It is quite rigid and you will feel all road unevenness. So you can drive fast but on good roads.

It has a seven-speed transmission with dry clutch. Sometimes jerks will be felt.

“Dragging” in traffic is surprisingly comfortable. The car is not “nervous”, it is quiet. The transmission works fine.

As for the fuel consumption, it is quite adequate for a car with such an aggressive character. It consumes 5 litres, but in fact it is 7.

Steering is very sharp. When turning the hatchback is easy to control. There are slight rolls of the car. In general, it is a pleasure to drive it, just you need to be careful.

Today compact hatchbacks are considered to be lady’s cars. The Audi A1 is no exception. However, this is very questionable considering its menacing appearance and dynamic performance.
