The A1 is fun to drive and the compact size make it a doddle to be nipping in and out of town in. It’s reassuringly safe and economical to run.
If you’re looking for a tasteful high quality compact car that will turn heads, then you’ve found it with the Audi A1. Best of all you can grab yourself a new A1 with a low deposit and free insurance, discounted insurance or cashback.
With its smooth lines, the A1 is extremely easy on the eye. Audi haven’t neglected the baby of the group by giving the A1 a really swanky interior too - full of kit. You can choose keyless entry and ignition as well as parking, rain and light sensors, and Audi offer Audi Drive Select which allows you to switch driving modes.
The infotainment system is top notch and if you opt for Audi Connect you’ll get a Wi-Fi hotspot and useful information like nearby petrol stations. You can also upgrade to a Bose surround sound system which is perfect to get you and your mates in the mood for a Saturday night out with some uplifting tunes.
It may be compact in size, but it’s surprisingly comfortable and extremely safe. The front seats are snug and supportive with a decent amount of leg room. The rear seats are a little cramped so don’t be surprised if your mates are fighting to sit upfront with you!
The A1 scored a fabulous five stars with Euro NCAP and a hard to beat 90% adult occupant protection rating. Chid rating was substantially lower though at 79%.
As well as looking good, this little motor delivers strong fuel economy. All models emit less than 100g/km of CO2 – which is good for your pocket.
Running costs should be fairly low as Audi has a comprehensive fixed-price servicing plan which, together with a decent depreciation rate, means the A1 is a great long-term value buy.
As you might expect with such a high quality car, the A1 handles well, and it’s a smooth and refined drive. The compact size makes it easy to park and nip around town. Best of all you really will be the envy of all your mates when you rock up to take them for a spin. It’s a classy car and great fun to drive.
What is a guarantor?
A guarantor is someone who formally guarantees to pay the finance if the young driver is unable to make the repayments. Before agreeing to become a guarantor for young driver, it is important you check that you would be able to afford the repayments (if they fail to pay the finance instalments), as non-payment pay could affect both yours, and their, credit score and result in repossession of the car.
How does the insurance work?
We offer you a personalised quote based on your age and postcode and the majority of our customers really do get free insurance. We know it's a big outlay buying and insuring your first car. We developed this offer to help ease the pain during what's probably going to be your most expensive year of car insurance – whilst you build up that first year's all important no claims bonus. Our insurance is underwritten by Highway Insurance (part of the Liverpool Victoria Group)
How long until I get my new car?
Good question. It depends on the car you're after and how far you want to go customising it! If you want your car delivered ASAP give us a call on 0333 358 3441 to find out what's available now. If you've got your heart set on a certain colour or upgrade the car may have to be made to order. Whatever your circumstances, our friendly team can talk you through timescales for the different options – and we'll keep you posted on progress until it's delivered.
What is the benefit of adding a guarantor to my finance application?
If you're aged under 21, you're unlikely to have built up much credit history, so approval will be based on your personal circumstances. Having a guarantor increases your chance of being approved - thus allowing you to start building up your credit score.
What happens after the first year?
We'll send you a renewal price, but you don't have to take it and if you can find a more suitable policy somewhere else you can move your insurance (we'll miss you though!)
