The Audi A3 is an outstanding all-rounder, although some rivals are better value for moneyread the full model review
Based on S line trim, you get dark-coloured wheels and exterior trim, tinted rear windows and an upgraded stereo. It’s pricey, so we’d avoid it unless you’re sold on the looks.
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.
