Good enough to beat the sensational BMW 3 Seriesread the full model review
The A3 Saloon’s entry-level trim has more than enough kit, with dual-zone climate control, 17in alloys, DAB radio, a 5.8in colour screen, Bluetooth, a USB socket and a leather steering wheel complete with audio controls. It’s worth noting that you can specify a more comfortable suspension set-up for no extra cost; we’d certainly recommend it. We’d also pay extra for rear parking sensors.
This entry level engine still has plenty of pep, coping with motorways without too much difficulty. Even so, we'd recommend the more powerful and refined 1.5 TFSI.
