Review

The Audi A3 Saloon is tidy in the bends, comfortable and well equipped, making it a very competitive option against its closest rivals, the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe and 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 those areas, and it's also more enjoyable to drive.

This trim isn't available right now, but if it mirrors the A3 Sportback it'll come with every option ticked, including 19in alloy wheels, Matrix LED headlights, front and rear parking sensors, a panoramic glass sunroof, a 360deg camera, adaptive cruise control, traffic sign recognition and keyless entry. On the inside, meanwhile, you get heated front seats with four-way lumbar adjustment, nappa leather upholstery, ambient lighting, a head-up display and a Bang & Olufsen sound system.
