As soon as you take your seat in an Audi A3, you’ll know you’ve made a good choice. Each body style – hatchback, saloon, cabriolet and sportback – shares the recognisable traits of Audi, notably the exceptional balance of performance and efficiency.
One in five Audis registered is an A3. Audi has worked hard on subtle changes to make sure it stays at the top of its game. There was also the welcome addition of new entry-level 1.0 litre three-cylinder petrol engine, alongside a new 2.0 petrol.
What’s more, the A3 now comes with the Audi’s popular digital cockpit technology, originally only seen on the TT. It’s a high-end, driver-focused system with 12.3-inch LCD screen. Don’t worry if you’re in the market for an older used Audi A3, though, as the brand has always been pretty generous with spec and gadgets.
The core of the A3 range is the three-door hatchback, popular largely due to the smooth and satisfying drive. Over the years, there’s been improvements to accuracy and body control. The saloon is also worth a mention as the practical choice. If you’re a fan of performance, and are willing to sacrifice running costs, the S3 Saloon is powered by a 306bhp 2.0 litre turbocharged petrol and Audi’s quattro four-wheel drive system.
Whatever model you pick, the interior is impressive. In our review of the A3, we couldn’t think of another cabin which could beat the A3. And we stand by that. But not everyone will be able to justify the extra costs and ignore the headline-grabbing starting prices of key competitors.
It’s easy to see why the Audi A3 is so popular. It combines a comfortable ride, upmarket interior and practical running costs with the extra oomph so many drivers are looking for. The sharp driving experience means the A3 holds its own against some tough competition.
