Available in both three-door hatchback and five-door sportback editions, this impressive supermini model has won the hearts and minds of many British drivers.

Audi A1 insurance groups and tax bands
Insurers consider a lot of information when calculating a fair price for your cover. This will often include factors like your age and where you live, and the model of car you want to insure. When calculating your quote, some insurers take into account insurance groups, which are bandings from 1-50 that reflect a car’s part and repair costs.
Another banding system to look out for is the one used for your annual road tax. Under this system, the most polluting vehicles are charged more annually.
Here are the tax bands and insurance groups of some Audi A1 variants:
|Model||Insurance Group||Tax Band|
|Audi A1 Hatchback 1.2 TFSI SE 3d||9||C|
|Audi A1 Hatchback 1.6 TDI Competition Line 3d||15||A|
