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: S3

The high-performance S3 is a model in its own right, with a powerful 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine and acceleration times that would disgrace the odd sports car. It gets 19in alloy wheels, lowered and stiffened adaptive suspension, a revised steering set-up, full-leather upholstery, heated front seats, a bodykit and aluminium-look door mirrors as standard.

Engine: S3 TFSI 300 Quattro Black Edn

The S3 comes with an even more powerful 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine and, combined with standard a four-wheel-drive system and a quick-shifting, seven-speed auto 'box, it is the real McCoy when it comes to high-performance saloons.
