Hot hatch special – Audi S1 versus Mini Cooper S

Midget gem specials - Audi S1 versus Mini Cooper S

Audi’s 228bhp S1 takes on the 189bhp Mini Cooper S to see which offers the best real-world mix of performance and value for money

This pairing – the final match-up wrestled from our sprawling sub £30k shootout – is probably most notable for the obvious absentee.

The Ford Fiesta ST is our small hot hatch champ by a troublingly huge margin, it won last year’s contest and came within a whisker of taking top honours again this time round.
