The Audi A3 is an outstanding all-rounder, although some rivals are better value for moneyread the full model review
S line trim is focused on sporty looks; you get even larger wheels (18in), a bodykit, LED headlights, part-leather upholstery and aluminium interior inlays. You get stiffer sports suspension as standard, although luckily you can revert to regular suspension for no extra charge for a smoother ride.
This three-cylinder entry-level engine has enough punch for use around town, but you’ll find yourself working it harder to keep up with motorway traffic and thrashing it to make quick progress on A-roads. Like all A3s except the auto-only e-tron, it can be combined with a manual or an automatic gearbox.
