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.

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:

35 TDI

If you are a private buyer after diesel, we think the 2.0-litre diesel engine (in this 148bhp tune) is worth the premium over the 1.6, because it’s a little smoother and offers punchier performance. It should still return more than 50mpg, too, keeping running costs down.
