Audi A1 Overview

The Audi A1 is classed as a supermini car which is produced by the German automobile manufacturing company Audi. This vehicle has been in production since 2010. Audi is part of the larger Volkswagen Group. The A1 was originally introduced as a 3-door hatchback for the European market and a 5-door version was released the following year called the A1 Sportback. The export versions were soon released after that. These cars are extremely well built and are very reliable little cars. The engines are good, they drive really well and are very well refined. Most versions do lack in equipment levels and there ain't that much room in the rear passenger area, although the boot space is pretty decent. They do have great safety features and this car is well worth considering. Does this sound like your experience of the A1?
