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: Black Edition
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.
Engine: 35 TFSI
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.
