Whichever guise you choose for the Audi A3 whether it is the hatchback, saloon, Sportback or Cabriolet - the all-round impressive offering makes it all the car you will ever need. Few can beat the comfort and quality found in the A3.
The A3 was the first executive hatchback and it found a new army of admirers but hatchbacks don't always sell so well abroad so the saloon was created and that's just as impressive. All of the engines are quiet when driven at speed with a choice of three diesel and four petrol units. All are frugal though if it is economy you are after the A3 e-tron hybrid is worth looking at which should return around 176mpg with its electric motor and 1.4 litre turbocharged petrol engine.
Of the petrol engines, the 1.4 litre TFSI unit offers great performance and economy of 60mpg. That's excellent for a petrol engine and the car utilises Audi's cylinder-on-demand technology which closes cylinders it doesn't need to save fuel. Of the diesels, the 1.6 litre TDI will return an impressive 83mpg while having a lively performance. There's also a choice of Sport and S line models for those who want a sportier performance which the A3 provides very well.
For drivers looking for a functional car that has a solid build and offers a fun to drive, then the A3 is for you. It's also great to look at. With its small dimensions, the A3 is a great performer and offers a fun driving experience; most models have two wheel drive but there's also the firm's all wheel quattro system available.
There's a decent list of standard equipment for the three trims including air con, alloy wheels and a colour display which rises from the dashboard when the engine is started. To help ensure safe handling, the A3 comes with electronic stability control, air bags and anti-lock brakes. In addition to being stylish, the interior of the A3 is excellent. It's been well-designed and made from quality materials to make it a comfortable place to be on long journeys.
As an all-rounder, the A3 is hard to beat and in addition to having a solid build, and a premium looking and feeling cabin, the A3 is also an excellent cruiser with responsive handling and excellent engines. For many, the A3 is the best premium hatchback or family saloon available.
