AUDI A3 review

NGC verdict 26.02.2016

As the vanguard of Audi's plug-in model roll-out, the A3 e-tron Sportback has a lot riding on it. Packaged in a conventional hatchback body, the plug-in hybrid (PHEV) looks almost exactly the same as a normal Audi. Under the skin though lies a sophisticated powertrain that aims to offer a best-of-all-worlds package - one that is fast, economical and comfortable. Next Green Car tested one for a week to see if it succeeds.
