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.

Trim: SE Technik

This trim is no longer available.

Engine: 35 TFSI

This 148bhp 1.5-litre petrol engine can shut down half of its cylinders when cruising to save fuel, and it'll return decent real-world MPG. It's also flexible enough to pull briskly from 1500rpm all the way to its redline, so you won't feel short-changed for performance, plus it's relatively smooth, too.
