The Audi A3 is an outstanding all-rounder, although some rivals are better value for moneyread the full model review
The high-performance S3 is a model in its own right, with a powerful 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine and acceleration times that wouldn’t disgrace many a supercar. It gets 18in alloy wheels, lowered and stiffened suspension, a revised steering set-up, full-leather upholstery, LED headlights, heated front seats, a bodykit and aluminium-look door mirrors as standard.
Engine:S3 TFSI Quattro Black Edition
Unique to the high-performance, four-wheel-drive S3 and S3 Sportback, this 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol motor produces more than 300bhp – enough to take the S3 from 0-62mph in around five seconds. It has only a little turbo lag and a terrific exhaust note.
