Thanks to the massively reworked front and rear ends, nobody will mistake it for its predecessor, and the same can be said about the cabin as well..
Standard gear includes the digital instrument cluster and 8.8-inch infotainment system, with a 10.1-inch screen being an option. There might be some more intuitive and less distracting systems out there, but these do the job fairly good. Also, practicality is a massive improvement over the old Audi A1, as there’s more legroom and headroom at the back along with a larger boot.
Despite impressing the reviewer in some chapters, the new A1 disappointed in some things, such as the build quality of some materials, vibrations coming through the pedals and gear stick lever, and road noise that some might expect from a Volkswagen Polo, but not from a premium car like an Audi.
The suspension is a bit on the firm side, but still forgiving enough to make the car feel civilized. The steering is quick and responsive, and there’s plenty of grip to encourage some sporty driving.
That said, on-road refinement and interior quality could be a bit better, but all in all, the 2019 Audi A1 is a good car to drive. The question is, is it a good car to own?
