Best used Audi A1 finance deals and offers 2021

Find the latest Audi A1 deals with PCP finance offers on SE, Sport and S Line models from less than £170 per month

In an ever-growing sector of popular and fashionable superminis, the Audi A1 has proven to be one of the most desirable, maintaining its position as one of the strongest sellers among rivals such as the Seat Ibiza, Volkswagen Polo and Mini Hatchback.

Even as it was finally replaced in 2018 after a full eight-year run, the old A1 remains a hugely sought after little car, and while it might not be a match for the Ford Fiesta or Vauxhall Corsa in terms of outright sales, there we have plenty of used examples on BuyaCar for the taking.

We're going to be focusing on the newest version of the A1, though, with models first becoming available in 2018 but used prices already beginning to drop compared to a brand new model. With options ranging from the calm and frugal SE trim to the wonderfully excitable S1, there's a healthy range to chose from and there are 184 Audi A1s currently available on Buyacar and 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.

Used Audi A1 PCP deals

Audi A1 SE offers

Even in this base level SE trim, 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.

Audi S1 offers

Although the Audi S1 has yet to receive an update since the new model was introduced in 2018, we believe it still represents a fantastic opportunity to own a proper performance hatchback at a very attainable price.

All-wheel drive ensures that the 228hp produced by its 2.0-litre engine can be transferred to the road without spinning up the wheels, while the 155mph top speed is rather ridiculous for a car of this size. It's still an A1, so it’s grown up when you want it to be, but it's capable of going into overdrive when the mood takes you.
