The latest Audi A3 Sportback isn’t quite as plush as its forebear, but is no less beautifully designed inside. It’s quiet, comfortable and well equipped, too, and more than deserving of its premium billing.get the best price
Trim: S Line
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: 30 TFSI 116
This entry level engine (now badged 30 TFSI) still has plenty of pep, but needs to be revved hard to get up to motorway speeds with any vigour. It's a good engine if you're on a tight budget, but we'd recommend the more powerful and refined 1.5 TFSI if you can stretch to it.
