The Audi A1 has been named Best Small Hatchback by Parkers, adding another feather in the model's cap after it already achieved three awards this year.

Parkers' New Car Awards are judged according to the cost of motoring, including servicing, showroom tax, fuel consumption and depreciation.

Kiren Puffett, editor of Parkers, said the Audi A1 1.6 TDI SE brings premium brand values at a price many drivers are able to afford, as well as exuding "classy sophistication".

"Thanks to its official average fuel consumption of 70mpg and low CO2 emissions, road tax costs just £20 a year," he added.

"Throw in low insurance costs and competitive servicing prices, and as an overall package, the Audi A1 1.6 TDI SE is the small hatchback that makes the car buyer's cash go the furthest."

Drivers of used Audi cars were recently told that the A1 also netted the Carbuyer Best Luxury Small Car of 2011 award.ADNFCR-2576-ID-800467274-ADNFCR
