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...

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...

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...
