Which used Audi A3 sports should I buy?

From launch, the A3 Cabriolet's engine options included three petrols and two diesels. The petrol choices were an entry-level 101bhp 1.6-litre, a turbocharged 158bhp 1.8-litre TFSI and a 197bhp 2.0-litre TFSI. Diesel engines included a 103bhp 1.9 TDI and a 123bhp 2.0 TDI.

In mid-2009, a 103bhp 1.2-litre TFSI engine was added, and a 104bhp 1.6 TDI replaced the 1.9-litre diesel. But our pick is the 1.8-litre TFSI - it's reasonably priced and delivers good performance.
