Audi A3 - At a glance car review


Make: Audi

Model: A3


The Audi A3 is the brand’s biggest-selling fleet model, and comes in a variety of body styles – three-door hatch, five-door Sportback, saloon and Cabriolet, as well as the hot 310hp S3 and 400hp RS3 models and the plug-in hybrid e-tron version. It’s a better driver’s car than the previous A3, and Audi’s interior quality is up at least level with the class best.

CCT positive:

Classy, inside and out, decent to drive and a very wide range of body, trim and engine options plus front- or four-wheel drive.

CCT negative:

No model bar the plug-in gets below 103g/km, which isn’t great for the C-sector.

Main rivals:

BMW 1-series, Volvo V40, Mercedes A-class, Volkswagen Golf

Interesting alternatives:

Lexus CT200h, Honda Civic, Alfa Romeo Guilietta

CCT says:

A desirable and sensible choice of company car. Interior quality and design is great, it drives nicely and, in Sportback form, is more practical than most of the rivals. Residuals back up the premium branding to form an excellent package.
