AUDI A3 review

NGC verdict 04.08.2014

Audi's A3 is a popular sized car and in convertible form has added appeal as the compromises for open air motoring are carefully minimised. This new version is better looking, drives better and has more cabin space than its predecessor so raising the bar again.

A wider choice of suspension options means you no longer have to suffer a bone jarring ride with some of the top specs. Audi's engineers managed to reduce CO2 emissions of a hatchback A3 to 99 g/km. The fact that this 1.6 litre turbo diesel convertible with its spritely performance is only 104 g/km is impressive.
