Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - Drive -

We adore the sexy hues of the Audi A1 Sport­back; take your pick from or­ange, red or white. Hot off the suc­cess of the small­est Audi in Euro­mo­bil’s range, the five-door Sport­back is de­signed to be even more user-friendly than its three-door pre­de­ces­sor. More spa­cious than it looks, the in­te­rior of­fers ad­di­tional head-and-shoul­der room. If you be­lieve there’s no such thing as over­pack­ing, you will love how the lug­gage com­part­ment ca­pac­ity is on a par with the three-door A1 at 270 litres with the rear seat in place, and 920 litres with the seat folded. Best of all, the re­tractable head re­straints do not have to be re­moved to do this, so stow­ing all your lug­gage is a breeze. For all its four-cylin­der won­der with seven-speed S tronic trans­mis­sion, the com­pact engine’s weight is evenly dis­trib­uted. So if you’re wor­ried about ex­cess bag­gage, rest as­sured the ad­vanced dy­nam­ics means you can go from zero to 100km/h in nine sec­onds with­out feel­ing a thing. Priced at RM185,000, on the road, with­out in­sur­ance (in­tro­duc­tory price RM179,900).
