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.
Engine:2.0 TFSI Quattro
The 2.0-litre petrol engine has lots of power and low-rev shove – more than enough, in fact, to make the A3 a fairly swift hatchback. It’s not much faster in the real world than the 1.5, though, and it’s more expensive to buy and run. It is, however, available with four-wheel drive, whereas most A3s are front-wheel drive.
