Practicality & boot space Rating

4.0 out of 5

The latest Audi A1 is offered in just one five-door 'Sportback' body style, and this decision will find favour with anyone who has tried to fit a child seat in a three-door car. The layout means the front and rear seats are easy to access, and doesn't noticeably detract from its sporty style.

Audi A1 interior space & storage

The biggest advantage of the A1's noticeable growth spurt is that it's now much more comfortable inside. The driver, front passenger and even those in the back seats should feel more relaxed on long journeys. Even adults should get away without scuffed knees and flattened hair in the back.

Boot space

Luggage space has dramatically increased by 65 litres to 335. Fold down the rear seats for extra room on those festival camping jaunts and there's now 1,090 litres of room. Audi has also made the loading lip lower - sitting just 67cm off the tarmac - to make lifting heavy items less of a strain.
