Audi A1 sportback takes efficiency trophy in Business Car Manager Awards

Premium subcompact five-door model wins first accolade to join host of honours awarded to A1 family
  • A1 Sportback wins Most Cost-Efficient Car for an SME Company Car Driver
  • Praised for its “low cost, low CO2 and good brand appeal” by judges
  • 1.6 TDI SE version with 105PS and CO2 of 99g/km is available now, priced at £14,700 OTR
The Audi A1 Sportback has won a key award in the annual Business Car Manager SME Company Car of the Year Awards 2012, proving it has pride of place alongside its hugely successful three-door sister model.
Judges in the awards, run in association with MAGMA Automotive Services, singled out the A1 Sportback as Most Cost-Efficient Car for an SME Company Car Driver.
Editor of Business Car Manager, Ralph Morton explained: "The Audi A1 Sportback encapsulates everything that's welcome about company car downsizing: a premium badge for car park credibility, low CO2 emissions for reduced company car tax exposure, and running costs that put a stranglehold on any business motoring expenditure."
James Douglas, Head of Fleet Sales at Audi UK, added: “It is fantastic to see the A1 Sportback regarded so highly for its efficiency credentials. The 1.6 TDI engine is capable of achieving 74.3mpg whilst only emitting 99g/km. Practical and with a premium feel inside and out, it is a genuinely exciting company car choice.”
