O

NLY Audi can claim its latest offering is A1 from tip to toe. That’s what it says on the badge and with a seemingly endless line up, perhaps it’s a fitting description for its fortunes. In the past couple of years the German car maker has increased its range to no less than 35 models - from the £100,000 R8 supercar to the A3 hatch, a rival to the Ford Focus. Now it is extending horizons to territories new and come November 13 the A1 will become the baby of its fleet. Priced from £13,420 the A1 is the cheapest Audi since the unconventional A2 came on the scene in the 1990s. While the A2 never really hit the mark – its quirky looks not to British tastes – the A1 is set to fare better. Audi says it wants to bring big car quality to the small car market and the A1 comes with plenty of goodies. So do many of its rivals such as the MINI, Citroen’s DS3 – and even the Ford Fiesta. Upmarket features being used on the A1 include the likes of a hard disk sat nav and entertainment suite from the flagship A8 saloon – but that will add the best part of £2,000 to the A1’s price. In fact it is fairly easy to kit out the newcomer to £20,000 and beyond. Going for the higher end of the market is an Audi strength and the A1 is up to the task. It may be priced to make Audi ownership available to a wider audience but its real appeal is to those with money to spend. Certainly the A1 looks the part – squat, sporty and with a touch of class. The roof frame can be had in

TOUCH OF CLASS: The interior of the Audi A1 (above) different colours emphasising the car’s style and, depending on body colour, looks best in silver or black. The interior can be jazzed up with coloured air vent cowls and matching upholstery patterns. While the effect is snazzy the array of personalised features is a little more straightforward than is offered by MINI or Citroen. It is simple and functional inside with a good sized centre console and a wide feel to the facia. The A1 is available only as a three door, four seater. Room in the back is OK but not too generous and the boot is 270 litres – smaller than a Fiesta – although more space is available by folding the rear seats. Three engines and three trims will be available and all versions of the A1 have CO2 emissions below 130g/km making them tax free in the first year. The pick of the bunch is a 1.6-litre diesel which can average a remarkable 70mpg with enough performance to keep anyone happy. Top speed is 118mph, 0 to 60 takes 10 seconds and CO2 is down to 105g/km. Audi is also using 1.2 and 1.4-litre

petrol engines in the A1 and both are equally acceptable but not quite as green with mpg in the low 50s. As a five speed manual the diesel is priced from £14,480 in basic SE trim or £17,865 in top specification S line finish where 17-inch alloys, LED interior lighting and sports suspension are standard. On the road the A1 has a balanced ride and although not as sporty to drive as a MINI or a DS3 it has an impressive feel. Noise suppression in the diesel is very effective, especially at motorway speeds and if anything it is quieter inside than the petrol versions. Service plans have become increasingly important to little car buyers since MINI introduced its tender, loving care scheme and Audi is following suit offering a five year, 50,000 mile scheme for £250 on the A1. It is not quite as generous, mainly covering oil and brake fluid, but helps keep ownership costs down. Matched to anticipated high resale values the A1 looks like a good bet for a new generation of Audi owners.

ROAD SAFETY organisation GEM Motoring Assist says changing the clocks can be a danger for road users and put lives at risk. The clocks go back an hour this Sunday and GEM chief David Williams says: “Poor weather, decreased visibility and bad road conditions are all rife during the winter months and have a serious effect on the rise in accidents and hazardous breakdown situations. “Changing the clocks only adds further to the dangers for road users, particularly for those on foot including vulnerable school children. “With the recent news that councils are planning to dim or turn off street lights in certain areas of the country, making conditions even worse, there is no better time to champion the need for lighter evenings,” says Williams.

MICHELIN ● has helped nearly 5,000

motorists save fuel and reduce CO2 emissions this summer as part of its annual Fill Up With Air campaign. The event, which has been touring the UK since May and shows drivers the importance of keeping tyres at the correct pressure, has reduced the annual CO2 emissions of participating drivers by around 145 tonnes. It is also estimated to have reduced the 4,753 drivers’ annual fuel consumption by more than 12,700 gallons and saved them around £70,000 a year on their fuel bills.

SHARP STYLE: The new Mazda5 features the Nagare theme inspired by the flowing movement of water and wind over rocks

Five-star Mazda has family values

T

HE ideal car for today’s families is how Mazda describes its new seven-seat people mover. Practicality is certainly the name of the game too, with the emphasis on economy, safety and a touch of style not normally associated with compact MPVs. The original Mazda5 was the first car in its class to feature sliding rear doors, a sensible move recently adopted by Ford for its Grand C-MAX model. There’s a whole lot more to the latest Mazda compared to its predecessor though – and there needs to be, given that sales of multi activity vehicles in general have shrunk by a whopping 60 per cent. Mazda’s answer is to make the ‘5’ even more appealing than before, in several ways. For starters there’s the styling, this model marking the debut of the Japanese company’s new design language which will feature in all new Mazda cars. Called Nagare, the theme is

by MIKE TORPEY inspired by the flowing movement of water and wind over rocks, the creases along the sides giving the car an energetic, sculpted silhouette. Then there are the sliding doors – powered in top grade models – that open extremely wide and almost flush to the bodywork, making for easy access in tight spaces. The step-up to the cabin is also very low, a boon for mums carrying small children. And if you don’t need seven seats in place then there’s the versatility of switching to four – or even just a pair leaving a vast, flat-floored cargo area for long or bulky items. January will see the arrival of a 1.6-litre diesel engine capable of returning 54 miles per gallon, but for the time being there’s a choice of two petrol-powered versions, with 1.8 and 2.0-litres plus six-speed manual transmission. Both these units were available for test drive on a

mixed coastal/moorland route around Cornwall and each performed well, my preference marginally being for the smaller one, which kicks off the range in basic TS trim at a competitive £17,695. It was comfortable, nicely appointed and the durable feel of the fabrics suggested the upholstery would stand the test of time.

The 1.8 engine produces 115PS and is more efficient than the outgoing powerplant of the same capacity in providing an average fuel figure of 39.2mpg plus six per cent CO2 emissions drop to 168g/km. That said, the larger oil-burner has i-stop technology to help boost the economy to 40.9mpg while

COOL GROOVES: The face of the new Mazda5

CO2 is down 15% to 159g/km. Standard spec is comprehensive in each of the three trim levels – TS, TS2 and Sport – and while Mazda expects the 1.6 diesel Sport model at £21,495 to prove the best seller, there was much to like about the cheapest car, which comes with the likes of air-con, cruise control, 16-inch alloys, electric windows, powered door mirrors and steering wheel-mounted audio controls. All cars also have front, side and curtain airbags, two ISOFIX child seat anchor points and ABS with electronic brake force and emergency brake assist – so safety is well addressed. Mazda is under no illusion that generating substantial sales will be challenging, especially seeing as they are shunning the lucrative Motability market favoured by some rivals. The Japanese company’s target for 2011 is 2,500 sales, a figure they should comfortably manage given the Mazda5’s quality and design.

Land Rover Discovery4 TDV6 HSE

Wild about the Disco

MULTI-TALENTED: The latest Land Rover Discovery4 is actually four vehicles in one

I

F there’s really such a thing as a car for all seasons, then the Land Rover Discovery4 certainly fits the bill. Whichever way you look at it, the latest generation Disco is actually four vehicles in one – luxury estate, MPV, off-roader and load lugger. But where the big bruiser hits the mark like never before is with the road manners and refinement that make it a joy to use in everyday conditions, even if all seven seats are in use. The car’s predecessor, the Discovery3, won more than 100 awards, yet Land Rover still managed to improve virtually every aspect of the latest version. We’re talking a more modern profile, refined new engines, more upmarket interior and a raft of fresh technologies. Makes you wonder why buyers of prestige stablemate the Range

TEST

with MIKE TORPEY

Rover continue to shell out an extra £30,000 when the Disco is so desirable and capable. It looks sporty and dynamic, is extremely family friendly and appeals as a fashion statement too, yet the core values that have defined Land Rover’s reputation have shifted up a gear. Take the Disco's dynamics. New suspension components, better traction control, revised steering and larger brakes have transformed the ride and handling to the point that the big 4x4 is super smooth, riding bumps with superb balance

and showing great composure on all types of surface. It’s fast and assured, with the sort of agility you wouldn’t expect from a vehicle of this size and shape. The previous model’s 2.7-litre turbodiesel engine still marks the entry point to Discovery at £33,040, but the new 3.0 TDV6 is the one to go for and costs from £35,995 for the well-equipped GS version. The TDC6 is a magnificently refined unit developed with Jaguar that delivers a near 10 per cent improvement in fuel economy and nine per cent less CO2 emissions while boosting power by 29 per cent. So there’s loads of punch and even though the car now boasts a 0-60mph acceleration time of exactly nine seconds, fuel is saved thanks to a reduced idle speed, selective battery recharging, lower drag and more economical air conditioning. The official fuel figure is 30.4mpg, though I got

Citroen switches up the style for C5 Saloon and Tourer

driver deals

CITROEN’S latest C5 range will have refreshed styling and technology upgrades when saloon and tourer models go on sale next week. The upgrades include new LED lights, darker tinted rear light clusters, re-worked engines and the arrival of the French

company’s eTouch Emergency & Assistance System. A full Euro 5 compliant engine line-up is also in place with the 1.6HDi 110hp Euro 5 to replacing the Euro 4 version. The 1.6i THP 155hp petrol engine - available in saloon form with VTR+ NAV trim - and the

3.0HDi V6 240hp Auto Exclusive have been re-vamped and now offer improved fuel efficiency and lower CO2 emissions. Combined cycle fuel economy increases from 39.8mpg to 42.2mpg and 38.2mpg to 39.2mpg respectively, while CO2 emissions are also down 14g/km
