The Audi A3 Saloon impresses with its agility in corners, comfortable ride and respectable fuel efficiency. With its recent mid-life facelift, it now boasts a well-equipped standard equipment list and a sharper, more luxurious interior. However, if you prioritise spaciousness and superior cruising performance, the Audi A4 or BMW 3 Series might warrant the extra investment.

S Line is the one to go for if you’re after something a bit sportier, because it adds switchable driving modes and the sports suspension. Aside from that, most of the changes are aesthetic, with the S Line getting sportier exterior styling, sports seats inside and S Line badging throughout.

With 108bhp, the entry-level 1.0-litre petrol engine has enough power for everyday driving but needs to be worked hard if you want to get the best out of it. It’s a good option if you want to keep costs down, though, and should be quite efficient, promising around 50mpg.
