How to Buy a Used Audi A1 for a Cheap Price

The Audi A1 is a three door supermini which is primarily aimed at young urban drivers. It was launched at the Geneva Motor Show in 2010, and is now available to buy on the used car market.

The A1 has been a popular model for Audi, and many people will be interested in finding themselves a bargain and buying a used Audi A1 for a cheap price. But where do you find a cheap deal on a car like this?

The most important part of finding a cheap deal on a used car is being able to recognise a cheap deal. I know that sounds obvious, but it is important to do some research into prices before making a decision to buy, and it is also important to make sure that you are comparing like with like.

Not all Audi A1 cars are created equally – there is a range of different engines and trim levels out there, and they will each have a different value. There are four different petrol engines ranging from a 1.2-litre TFSI to a 2.0-litre TFSI, and there are also three different diesel engines ranging from a 1.6-litre TDI to a 2.0-litre TDI. The A1 is also sold with a range of different trim levels including SE, Sport and S Line. Higher trim levels include extra features such as sport seats, sports suspension and larger wheels. If you are looking at a used Audi A1 and you are trying to judge its value then it will be helpful to not only look at the engine, but also look at which trim level the car was purchased with. If the seller cannot tell you, then you can look for things like the sports seats and ask about the suspension to help you judge the proper value.

Of course the best tip for buying a cheap used car is to shop around, and you should make full use of the internet to do this. Even if you are buying from a private seller in your area the internet can be a great research tool, and there are also many places where you can find cheap deals for used Audi A1 cars online as well, so it is well worth taking a look around rather than just assuming that you will get a better price from a private seller.

As with all used car purchases you should be careful to make sure that all the paperwork checks out so that you do not end up buying a ‘cloned’ vehicle.
