The revised Audi A1 is an important vehicle for the brand in Australia - both as an entry point and for existing customers. It's a better vehicle all-round than the one it replaces too.

2019 Audi A1 review

The second-gen Audi A1 is bigger, brawnier, and a whole lot more mature than the ageing model it replaces. In other words, it's all grown-up.

2020 Audi A1 review | Small car review

While our launch drive was brief, jumping between variants in between shooting video, we learnt pretty quickly that the new 2020 Audi A1 is an impressive premium compact hatch. Styling is subjective, but I think it looks the part – certainly for the intended buyer. The quality of the fit and finish, and the quality of the drive experience across the three variants we tested, is also right up where it needs to be...

Audi A1 Sportback 1.0 TFSI v Mini 5 Door One : Affordable premium hatchback comparison test

Just because a brand is considered to be prestigious doesn’t mean it can’t have a wallet-friendly offering in its line-up. That’s exactly the case for these two vehicles – the 2015 Audi A1 1.0 TFSI and the 2015 Mini 5 Door One – because the pitch behind these compact five-door hatchbacks is to offer an affordable entry point to each of their respective ranges...

Audi A1 v Mini Cooper : Comparison review

‘Premium light’ is a term for more than just watered-down beer charged exorbitantly at the footy. The reborn Mini Cooper and original Audi A1 each ask around double that of similarly sized hatchbacks, which start from around $15K, but their makers would argue they are big on flavour and … well, premium-ness. For buyers living in the big smoke, they should be close to ideal...

Volkswagen could face record fine, Justice Foster blasts ACCC and VW

Volkswagen’s German head office could be hit with an even bigger fine than the proposed $75 million penalty – already the highest of its type in Australia – for “misleading or deceptive conduct” on diesel vehicles that cheated emissions tests.

2013 Audi A1 Sportback 1.4 TFSI Sport Review

Fast, Fuel Efficient, Cheap. Normally you have to pick two. Fortunately, that is not the case with the Audi A1 Sport(if you buy second hand). The 1.4 Twin Charged engine, coupled with the 7 speed twin-clutch VW-AG S-tronic gearbox is an amazing little package that fits perfectly with the little A1. It is a shame that they have phased it out and now replaced this engine with the 1...

2011 Audi A1 Review

When thinking of Audi and Audi drivers the typical stereotypes surface: boring evolutionary styling, boring dynamics on non-Quattro models, and the middle-aged professional. In 2011 when my anything-but-boring A1 and I were united that stereotype was moot. I was 22, in a low-level management position and a car enthusiast who purchased the car on its merits rather than the four rings dominating the prominent single frame grille...

2013 Audi A1 Review

Please Sir, can I have...less? Throughout the naughties there was a concerning trend of bigger, heavier, faster, more grip, more isolation and thankfully, more economy. Only the latter made me happy. I do not need to pull over 1 lateral G to smile, speed is becoming far less important, and maybe I want to feel the limits of grip on a normal drive! Finally I do not need to be so cocooned, that I am unsure of the motive force in front, beside, behind me, who knows...
