Review

The A3 Saloon is wholly worthy of its premium executive billing, being good to drive, comfortable and beautifully finished inside. A BMW 3 Series is a better alternative if you want the ultimate handling executive car, or for those that need masses of space a VW Passat is a much bigger, but if a more compact car suits your needs, make sure the A3 Saloon is on your shopping list.

Trim: Black Edition

Based on S line with all its features, this adds special 18in alloy wheels, a black styling pack and privacy glass.

Engine: 35 TDI

We think this 148bhp 2.0-litre diesel engine is worth the premium over the 1.6 (30 TDI) because it’s a little smoother and offers punchier performance. It should still return good MPG, too, keeping running costs down.
