Review

There's no doubt the latest A3 isn't as well finished inside or as polished overall as the previous model, but it still rates well against the premium competition in the form of the BMW 1 Series and Mercedes A-Class. It's comfortable, good to drive, roomy, quiet, with some punchy petrol and diesel engines and a plug-in option coming soon, all of which should stick it on your shopping list.

Engine: 30 TDI 116

This is one of the best engines (now badged 30 TDI) in the line-up for CO2 emissions making it an appealing choice for company car drivers; just remember the four per cent benefit-in-kind diesel surcharge though. It’s also smooth enough most of the time and has enough low-down punch for comfortable motorway cruising. Comes with a six-speed manual gearbox as standard, but can be had with a seven-speed auto 'box.
