Review

The Audi A3 Saloon is comfortable, composed and well equipped, so is competitive with its closest rival, the Mercedes A-Class Saloon. However, the A4 is worth the extra if you can afford it, because it’s quieter and has a classier and more practical interior. Likewise, the BMW 3 Series betters the A3 in these areas, and is more enjoyable to drive.

Trim: Sport

Even this entry-level trim is well equipped, featuring 17in alloy wheels, automatic lights and wipers, rear parking sensors, dual-zone climate control, leather upholstery and a 10.1in touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration. We would add the optional driver's seat lumbar adjustment, though.

Engine: 30 TDI

Compared with the more powerful diesel option, the 30 TDI needs to be worked quite hard, which has a negative impact on refinement.
