Review

It's amazing to think that the Audi A3 Sportback is one of the oldest cars in its class, yet still proves to be an outstanding all-rounder. True, some rivals are better value for money, but in part the A3's additonal initial cost will be offset by the its strong resale values. The Mercedes A-Class runs the A3 close in many respects, but ultimately the A3 is still the pick of the premium family cars. If you're looking for practicality and aren't a badge snob, though, then the Skoda Octavia is both colossal and cheap.

get the best price

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 is one of the best engines (now badged 30 TDI) in the line-up for CO2 emissions making it an appealing choice for company car drivers; just remember the four per cent benefit-in-kind diesel surcharge though. It’s also smooth enough most of the time and has enough low-down punch for comfortable motorway cruising. Comes with a six-speed manual gearbox as standard, but can be had with a seven-speed auto 'box.
