Audi S1 Sportback review: Long-term report one

We've added a few cars to the CarAdvice stable in the past year, but this little monster was the first: the Audi S1 Sportback.

What to do when you damage a wheel

Gutter-jumpers, kerb-crushers, pothole-thumpers - if you fall into any of these categories then it's likely you've damaged a wheel or two during your driving career. In fact, I’m sure most of us have, at one time or another, misjudged a corner or failed to see a pothole and heard that horrible graunching sound...

What to do when you damage a wheel

I’m sure most of us have heard that horrible sound. That crunching crash that gives you a jolt as you realise you’ve just decorated your alloy wheels with gouges and scrapes. Gutter rash does happen, and it doesn’t have to ruin your week. There’s no doubt that the trend towards larger rim sizes, in even fairly non-sport oriented cars, has continued...

Audi S1 Review : Track Test

Read the article here. With Audi’s chic A1 starting from just $26,500, many would think you’d have to be stark raving mad to shell out $49,900 for one! Unless, it’s one of these – the Audi S1. Under the bonnet lurks a turbocharged 2.0-litre firecracker of an engine that punches out 170kW and a stomping 370Nm of torque...

Audi S1 v Renault Megane RS275 Trophy v Volkswagen Golf R : Comparison review

The hot-hatch genre may be moving at exceptional pace across all price points, but circa-$50,000 fast hatchbacks are also defying stereotypes that used to be a given. Five years ago the Renault Sport Megane was crowned the undisputed king of a segment that stuffs an energetic engine under the bonnet of a relatively small car...

2016 Audi S1 Sportback 2.0 TFSI Quattro Review

Older rally fans will remember the last time Audi had a car called the S1. Armed with enough spoilers, scoops and fins to shame an F1 car, it terrorised the rallying world in the 1980s, a member of the fearsome bunch of Group B rally cars that included the Ford RS200, Lancia Delta S4 and Peugeot 205 T16...

2015 Audi S1 Review

Audi's diminutive S1 is intended to be an entry into the marque's sports oriented S and RS ranges for younger, aspiring buyers, but as a value proposition, does it stack up? Approaching the Audi S1 from the outside, the car looks bigger than expected. The styling tweaks over the cooking model A1, such as the quad exhaust pipes and bigger wheels give it a more aggressive stance and increased on-road presence...

2015 Audi S1 Sportback 2.0 TFSI Quattro Review

An honest little car! With a simple software upgrade (REVO, ABT etc) it goes up to 300+ HP and then becomes a serious performer as it should have been if the marketing people of AUDI did not want it to compete directly with S3 which is 25% more expensive. The Quattro works perfectly and the feeling is of a fast car. Handling is as good as you would expect...
