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.
The petrol engine has a broad spread of shove and is super-smooth. It also shuts down half its cylinders when cruising to save fuel. If you’re fixed on a petrol edition, this is the one to go for. The engine can be combined with a manual or automatic gearbox.
