10. Audi A1
The A1 has only been out on the roads since 2010 and, in all honesty, it’s ageing really well. It’s hard to believe the 10-plate examples are on their way to 8 years old already, but that’s a compliment to the design work of Audi. While the A1 was expensive for a small-hatch, it was cheap for an Audi. If you’re in the market for an inexpensive, reliable and somewhat luxurious small hatch then you will struggle to find much better than an A1. Prices start from about £7,000.
