Which used Audi A3 hatchback should I buy?
Whether to choose petrol or diesel power depends largely on how high your annual mileage is and how you will be using the car. On the whole, we prefer the smoothness of the petrols, and especially the hybrid 40 TFSIe, which combines great potential economy – if it fits into your lifestyle – with punchy performance.
We'd recommend sticking with cheaper Technik trim. This gets you a host of kit, including cruise control, air-conditioning, power-folding door mirrors, 16in alloy wheels, auto lights and wipers, a leather-trimmed steering wheel and an auto-dimming rear-view mirror.
