Best used Audi A1 finance deals and offers 2021

With bold styling and top-notch quality inside and out, Audi’s supermini is a great used small car – here are the best Audi A1 deals

The Audi A1 has always been one of the poshest and most desirable superminis around. As a small family car with an upmarket look and feel inside and out it feels like a cut above alternatives such as the Volkswagen Polo, Ford Fiesta and Skoda Fabia.

In fact, its closest competitor is probably the Mini Hatchback, but in truth the A1 feels like a much more grown-up car than the cheeky Mini. The latest version was launched in 2018 and is as popular as its long-lived predecessor (which was on sale for a full eight years), so there are plenty of used examples on BuyaCar.

With options ranging from the calm and the more basic SE and Technik trims to the much more plush S line and Vorsprung models, there's a healthy range to choose from and there are 235 Audi A1s currently available on BuyaCar. Below, we've selected some of the best and most popular models with some pretty substantial savings attached.

Read on for our pick of the best Audi A1 deals, or click the list to jump to the particular model you're interested in.

Audi A1 SE offers

Even in this base level SE trim (which was replaced by the Technik trim at the end of 2019), the Audi A1 feels distinctly higher quality than the VW Polo it shares much of its internals with. Not only does it look sharp and youthful, but the interior is as good as you would expect from an Audi product - it's well built and effortlessly sleek, and it's clear to see why you're paying more for the A1 compared most of its rivals.

Despite being the cheapest option in this list, SE models still comes with alloy wheels, air-conditioning, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay as standard. In terms of engines, the SE trim is available with a 1.0-litre petrol or the 1.6-litre diesel that is found across the range, both have an option of either a manual or automatic gearbox.

Audi A1 Sport offers

Jumping up from SE to Sport trim gives you access to the more powerful 1.5-litre, 150hp petrol engine alongside the two standard options also available in the SE spec. The bigger engine does feel like a substantial step up in performance, but it also comes with cylinder-on-demand technology - this clever tech shuts off two of the four cylinders when they aren't required, making it more efficient and therefore better for the environment when cruising or at low speed.

Other tech includes fog lights, Bluetooth, and sport suspension. There are some additional tweaks on the outside - including 17-inch alloy wheels. You also get sport seats, rear parking sensors and cruise control.

Audi A1 S line offers

A further step up to S line spec brings another jump in price, however as with the Sport trim you'll never feel like you've been short-changed. First up is the 2.0-litre petrol engine, packing 200hp and turning the A1 into something of a snarling beast, although it is only available as an automatic so purists looking for full driver engagement may be disappointed.

The S line also receives its own styling upgrades around the front and rear bumpers to give it a more aggressive appearance, alongside 17-inch alloy wheels and sport suspension, which together make the ride decidedly firmer. You also get atmospheric interior LED lighting for an extra upmarket touch.

Right at the top of the Audi A12 range sits the Vorsprung trim level. This is the plushest A1 you can get and features luxury touches such as full climate control, ambient lighting and a larger 10.1-inch media screen. It also gets Audi’s virtual cockpit in place of traditional driver instruments as well as wireless phone charging and a high-end Bang and Olufsen stereo system. This all comes at a price of course, but if you like your gadgets and little luxuries, this could be the A1 trim for you.
