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 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.
