The Audi A1 has been named Best Luxury Small Car of 2012

Audi A1 Sportback (2012)

The Audi A1 has been named Best Luxury Small Car of 2012 by CarBuyer’s panel of road testers and reviewers.

The judges highlighted the A1’s sleek good looks and an incredibly up market cabin are at the heart of the Audi's appeal, while its impeccable build quality is second to none. What's more, the arrival of the more versatile five-door Sportback version means the A1 is now as practical as it is desirable. On this evidence, it's going to take something very special to knock the Audi off the top step of the podium in 2013.

Martin Sander, Director of Audi UK, commented “It gives me great pleasure to be accepting a second award for the A1 this year, which is also its second consecutive CarBuyer award. The fact that the A1 is continuing to win awards and defending the titles it won last year shows its enduring appeal.”

The award was presented to Martin Sander, Director of Audi UK, by CarBuyer’s Editor-in-Chief Steve Fowler on the Audi stand at the Geneva Motor Show.

Audi A1 prices start from £13,420 OTR (1.2 TFSI 86PS SE model) and rise to £21,810 OTR for the range topping 1.4 TFSI 185PS Black Edition model.
