Audi A1 Sportback test drive and review
Exterior and interior features of the all new Audi A1 Sportback small car

Audi A1 Sportback test drive and review. Today we are going to take a closer look at the smallest vehicle Audi offers in its product range. The A1 looks stylish and offers great features and comfort for city driving. Audi A1 is perfect for urban places where busy traffic and tide parking space is always a problem. The all new A1 will probably suit best to women and young people, it is a small car after all.

The A1 Sportback is the 5-door version of this model and it offers great interior space and functionality. Tough it may look small the A1 Sportback is very practical and can easily carry four adults and some luggage. Actually the 5-door version of the A1 has almost the same dimensions as the 3-door but it gives the feeling of a much bigger car.

Audi A1 Sportback is offered with the choice of four turbo-petrol and three turbo-diesel engines, all of them achieving great dynamics and amazing fuel economy.
Audi A1 Sportback is definitely a very good car. Probably its biggest drawback is the price. The A1 is not cheap at all. Prices for the basic model start from around ?14,000 (in UK) but higher spec models can easily reach ?20,000. That is definitely a lot for such a small car but it is also quite a car for its size.
Probably the biggest rival for the A1 Sportback will be the MINI Clubman which costs about the same but is a bit bigger and definitely more interesting.
