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.

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.
The engineSee full engine specs
If you want your A3 Saloon to drink from the black pump, this 148bhp 2.0-litre diesel engine is your only option. It’s a strong engine with plenty of torque, meaning that it pulls hard through the rev range and covers the 0-62mph sprint at around the same pace as the 35 TFSI petrol. Of course, the main draw will be that its official efficiency figures promise around 63mpg.
