What used Audi A3 hatchback will I get for my budget?
Prices for the Audi A3 start at as little as £1200 these days, but all that will buy you is a very early car with high mileage or a write-off to its name. However, £2000 is enough to get you into a respectable early petrol-powered three-door. If you want a diesel, you’ll have to increase your budget to around £3000.
The five-door Sportback didn’t come out until 2004, and it’s more desirable because of its extra practicality, so prices are a little higher. Expect to pay at least £2700 for a low mileage petrol-powered example with full service history, and £500 more than that for a diesel model.
