The A3 Saloon is tidy in bends, comfortable and well equipped, making it a very competitive option against its closest rivals. However, an Audi A4 or BMW 3 Series is worth the extra if you can afford it.
The trimSee full equipment
Don’t be put off by the fact that Sport is the entry-level trim, because we think it actually gives the best balance of cost and equipment. It comes with plenty of toys, including 17in alloy wheels, power-folding mirrors, rear parking sensors, dual-zone climate control, Audi’s Virtual Cockpit and a 10.1in touchscreen infotainment system with DAB radio, Bluetooth, built-in sat-nav and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring.

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.
