Just getting in to the exterior for comparison I think the Audi A1 poses the biggest threat.





However, bang for your buck would have to go to the Honda Fit for the amount of space you would get for your dollar. The only compromise would be that it looks like the design was based off an Odessey.

The Audi A1 looks awkward, they could have done a much better job at applying their new design language to this new chassis. Even Honda did a far better job.

The Audi A1 reminds me a lot of the Renault Captur.



They even both have white accents on the roof. Are the two brands affiliated at all?

I wish the OP had the dimensions of the MINI included in it for comparison's sake.

not a fan of the color scheme on that Audi. The Fit isn't really meant to be a small car.

Its compact but it still fits alot of stuff inside. Probably has one of the best interior storage.

A1 is smaller and much lower to the ground. No affiliation.

I dont see the connection. white accents on the roof should be no reason to make a connection between the two. this is a totally different car
