Review Summary
This supermini is a mouth-watering prospect – it oozes class, has phenomenal grip thanks to Quattro technology and tons of power.

Review Summary
On the road, it’s certainly quick with the 2.0-litre turbo engine proving to be a smooth, flexible and very muscular powerplant. Given the performance it’s economical too, with claimed average fuel consumption around the 40mpg mark.

Review Summary
Very likeable but ultimately too expensive for the limited driver thrills that it can offer.

Review Summary
The Audi S1 is fast, grippy and smart inside. It could be a bit more exciting through the corners, though.

Review Summary
Well done Audi, this one's a proper little stonker: fast, small, fun, a 4wd hot hatch done properly.

There are rivals that are cheaper similarly fast, but none of them so successfully combine performance, quality and showroom appeal.

Review Summary
Audi is competing in a crowded market with the S1 hatchback, but it's done more than put a 'quattro' sticker on it – this is a seriously fast car.

Review Summary
Audi S1 hot hatch has incredible all-wheel drive pace and a classy cabin, but it comes with a chunky price tag, too
