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.
Engine:1.6 TDI 116
This is the best engine in the line-up for CO2 emissions, and thus an appealing choice for company car choosers. It’s also smooth and has enough low-down punch for comfortable motorway cruising. Like the other diesels, it is available with a manual or automatic gearbox, and in front- or four-wheel-drive form.
