At 380 litres, the Audi A3’s boot has almost exactly the same amount of space as the Volkswagen Golf’s. While that’s easily enough for a big food shop, you can fit far more in the boot of a Skoda Octavia.
It’s also worth remembering that quattro four-wheel-drive models get a 40-litre reduction in boot space because of the extra oily bits underneath. The e-tron gets an even pokier 280 litres due to all the batteries under the boot floor.
An adjustable boot floor comes as standard and reduces the load lip at the entrance and ensures there’s no step up to the rear seats when they’re folded down. They don’t lie totally flat, but the slope is a small one, so it shouldn’t cause too many problems. The boot opening is a decent size and shape, too.
