Where did you hear this?

My Audi dealer says they won't be making a hot new A1, but then again, they are trying to push me into an RS3 at the moment.
Wife works at audi, was told by a regional manager type person when they introduced new A1, was keen to tell me as I had the previous S1.

Is it worth 4 to 5k over a Clio RS though ?
I’ve seen from a main dealer a 2 year old RS for £11k
Yes it is worth the difference. Vastly more fun to drive and better built than a Clio 220 Trophy. Also more tuneable.

A lot of hate on here from people comparing completely different fwd cars. Probably all people that judge it on cost and just like to hate Audi’s. The interior is better quality than the Polo or Ibiza on the same PQ25 platform. I tried all three and this is my first ever German brand car.

Having come from a highly specced Abarth and a long line of other fun performance cars, it is vastly better than others. Yes being 4wd it doesn’t compare to a more common Fiesta ST, but it’s certainly better than the 220 Trophy I drove and comes within. On the open roads it’s an absolute hoot, especially in a 4 wheel drift.

It drives much better than the S3 and I think a lot of the comments here are driven by a subjective inferiority complex.

Sure it’s not perfect, but neither are some of the other cars bigged up on the comments here and at least it isn’t as common as muck.
