The A3 isn't as well finished inside or as polished overall as the previous model, but it's still comfortable, enjoyable to drive, and is spacious enough inside for most. We recommend the 40 TFSIe for its electric range, low company car tax and performance. It’s one of the best plug-ins out there and a fine car in its own right.

This 2.0-litre turbocharged engine has 306bhp and drives all four wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. In our tests, 0-60mph took just 4.4sec thanks to standard fit launch control.
