The Audi A2 is a Supermini, with the special distinction of being made out of aluminium rather than steel and, although the car has a long rust-proof life, unfortunately the manufacturing did not. The car was launched in 2000 and the final one was produced in 2005.
Not only was the construction material revolutionary for a standard production car, so was the design. It was quite revolutionary for its time and even the early models do not look out of place compared to the modern styles.
The car did not only look good, it was also an excellent car to drive so it is quite difficult to understand why it was never very popular. Only 176,000 of them were ever manufactured.
One thing that makes a used Audi A2 great is its fuel economy, which is a function of its very low weight, due to its aluminium construction. When it was initially manufactured fuel was not such an expensive commodity as it is today. Had it been, then surely the A2 would have been much more popular. In some configurations the car delivers, on average, nearly 70 mpg and, under certain conditions, fuel consumption can be as low as 140 mpg.
A used Audi A2 is an excellent buy. The fact that the body is constructed of aluminium means that rusting is not an issue and its lightweight body means that you can get excellent fuel economy. However, they are very difficult to get hold of. The best way of finding one is to search here at Motors.co.uk; if there are any available in your area then Motors.co.uk will find them for you.
Although aluminium was an excellent material from which to build the Audi A2, because it is so unusual, repairing an aluminium body following a shunt is very expensive. Consequently many of them have been written off by insurance companies following even minor damage and there are only around 18,000 of them remaining in the UK.
