We love real stats at Bangernomics and after analysing how many repairs are carried out through their website and comparing those figures to official car registration statistics from the Department of Transport, the Audi A1 can be named the most reliable car on the road out of the UK’s 50 most popular cars.

There are over 170,000 registered Audi A1’s on UK roads and only 107 needed a repair through the WhoCanFixMyCar.com service between September 2017 – September 2018 which means that for a lucky Audi A1 owner, there is a comforting 1 in 1,610 chance of needing a repair in the next year.

Other stand out reliable models are the Citroen C models, with the C4, C3 and C1 all making it in to the top 10.

Other cars which feature in the top 10 are as follows:
2. Renault Clio, 1 in 1,249 chance
3. Nissan Note, 1 in 1,055
4. Seat Leon, 1 in 864
5. Hyundai i10, 1 in 292
6. Renault Megane, 1 in 155
7. Citroen C4, 1 in 153
8. Citroen C3, 1 in 148
9. Citroen C1, 1 in 140
10. Vauxhall Zafira, 1 in 125
