A bit about the Audi A1

Starting as a concept design in 2007, the Audi A1 was introduced in 2010 as a direct rival to the revised version of the MINI, which had enjoyed huge success since its revival. Utilising the underpinnings of the ever-popular Volkswagen Polo, Audi built the A1 with style, sophistication and a touch of fun in mind – similar qualities to those that had worked so well for the new MINI.

Since its release, the A1 has gone from strength to strength in the UK and global markets. A perennial best-seller, the A1 1.4 TFSI Sport scooped What Car? Magazine’s ‘Car of the Year’ award in 2011. The first generation of A1 lasted up until 2018, with the introduction of the Quattro-rally-car-inspired A1 Competition Line in 2011 a highlight among countless limited-edition releases through the years.

Today, the latest second-generation A1s boast a similar front grille to the Audi R8 supercar, but the brief is otherwise largely the same. A sporty but upmarket design, premium build quality inside and out and a general sense of practicality and user-friendliness make the A1 one of the best high-end superminis on the market right now.

Why buy a used Audi A1?

The value of a used Audi A1 lies in Audi’s commitment to producing quality across its entire range. As the smallest member of the Audi family, you might expect the A1 to carry a lower spec than some of the more prominent names in the Audi stable. Not so, though – Audi built the A1 to offer the same build quality, features and ergonomics that define its entire range.

As such, when you buy a used Audi A1, you can expect the same level of quality as you would from an A5, Q3 or any other model in the German manufacturer’s esteemed catalogue. Compared to the likes of the VW Polo, SEAT Ibiza and Skoda Fabia – all of whom are VW Group stablemates of the A1 – a used Audi A1 offers a legitimate step up and premium alternative.

Additionally, the A1 has primarily retained the immense popularity it’s enjoyed in the market through its more than 10-years of production. With no signs of there being any drop-off in desirability in the near future, buying an Audi A1 second hand represents a good decision not only based on the fact that it’s a top-quality option in its segment but also from a value-retention perspective.

Which used Audi A1 should I buy?

With countless iterations of the A1 released through its decade-plus, two-generation tenure, you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to buying a used Audi A1. When making your choice of A1, there are a few model lines in the A1 family that are worth being aware of:

· Used Audi A1 Sportback: the five-door version of the A1 released in 2012, the Sportback has become hugely popular thanks to its increased practicality and powerful engine choices.

· Used Audi A1 SE: the SE trim is the most basic of the core three available on the A1, typically making SE models notably cheaper than Sport or S-Line equivalents.

· Used Audi A1 Sport: the second trim level of the core three available, a used Audi A1 Sport will get you sharper handling through stiffer suspension as well as a variety of premium interior upgrades.

· Used Audi A1 S-Line: the S-Line is the highest-spec trim on offer in the A1 family, adding a number of features and even sharper handling to that of the Sport.

· Used Audi A1 Black Edition: the Black Edition was initially a limited-edition release, based on the S-Line trim but adding features including 18-inch alloys, a better sound system and climate control.
