The three-door Audi A3 Sportback may just be the very definition of well-rounded family hatchbacks. Indeed, it has such a breadth of talent that it was our overall What Car? Car of the Year in 2013 and has remained a consistent price point winner in our awards ever since.
It's not hard to see why. You get a beautifully built interior that’s spacious enough for the needs of most small families and plenty of practicality to boot. There's also a line-up of punchy yet economical turbocharged engines to choose from.
The A3 is built on the same underpinnings as many other Volkswagen Group models, including the VW Golf and Skoda Octavia, but it does cost a bit more to buy. Just remember, though, that you could save yourself thousands by checking out our new car deals here.
