Audi A1 Named Best Small Car at 2011 Fleet World Honours
“Audi’s new A1 is just so desirable, combining chunky good looks with the firm’s meticulous attention to detail and quality. It might not be the cheapest supermini, but strong performance on the used market will balance the books. Pre-launch, it always looked like being a winner – now on fleet, it has proved it,” said Fleet World Editor, Steve Moody.
The A1’s Best Small Car Fleet World award joins the prestigious Car of the Year and Supermini of the Year awards from What Car? magazine, Best Small Hatchback from Parkers New Car Awards and Best Luxury Small Car from the CarBuyer Awards.
On the UK market, the A1 is priced starting at £13,420 OTR for the model equipped with a 1.2-liter TFSI engine developing 86 PS. Prices go all the way up to £20,710 OTR for the top of the range 1.4 TFSI 185 PS model.
The Fleet World Honours are presented annually by Fleet World magazine to those motor manufacturers, service companies and individuals who have, in the opinion of the judges, achieved the highest possible level of excellence in their sector.
Fleet World magazine has a circulation of 19,000 fleet decision-makers and is read by virtually every UK organisation with 15 or more vehicles.
