Audi A2 (00-05) - rated 4 out of 5

On sale here in the UK in 2002, the Audi A2 is one of the German firm’s shortest lived cars only being in production for five years. One of the suspected reasons for the halt in production was that the car was losing money, according to sources around £4,000 per car.

When it was first launched it was seen as ahead of its time built entirely from weight-saving aluminum which meant it delivered seriously impressive low running costs. Its rivals included the Mercedes-Benz A-Class and the Volkswagen Golf Plus.
