Audi A2 (00-05)

Value

4 out of 5

High cost, but best of the small car market.

Costs

3 out of 5

A lot thirstier than you would think Quite high service costs (300ish for first service).

Driving

4 out of 5

Refined ride, good road holding, feels quality.

Performance

2 out of 5

Engine has flat spots and lacks power. Also quite unrefined and 'grindy'. Have driven 14tdi, which is miles better and nippier. Audi state to get best performance, you need top spec unleaded, which defeats object of claimed fuel economy.

Reliability

4 out of 5

Good, although sounds like a diesel when you first start it. Have only had problems with buzzing through rear speakers, which Audi cant fix & intermittent noisy steering which Audi cant locate!

Looks great and is still uncommon - almost got 'sub-zero' on 'Top Gear's' cool wall need I say more!

Comfort

5 out of 5

Excellent - interior is top quality, although matt materials do seem to absorb dirt. Nice feel overall, instruments very well placed. Rear leg room unsurpassed. Make sure you get the boot divider.
