Should I give it garage space?
In a word: Maybe. It's a very fine looking car, but unless you're a proper eco-nut you'll probably want to go for something a little more powerful. It seems as though Audi has made a few compromises to achieve stellar economy.
That said you could happily tool around in it making the Jones' next door jealous that not only are you driving a more premium motor than their MINI, you're also doing wonderful things for the planet AND saving money.
A purchase like this is going to be made with less logic and more emotion - you'll get a good looking, eco-tastic motor, but you'll have to drop at least £17,220 on it before you even start ticking options boxes. You've really gotta want it. Something tells us you do, though.
