VerdictShould you buy an Audi A3 Saloon?

We can heartily recommend the A3 Saloon if you’re in the market for a premium, but small, executive-style car.

It looks brilliant, feels just as grown up as more expensive Audis, and has an interior that gives a wow factor.

A Mercedes A-Class Saloon has a flasher interior, while a BMW 2-Series Gran Coupe is a touch better to drive. The A3 Saloon is the happy medium between these two.

If you dig the looks, this is a no brainer. But if you’re on the fence about them, a regular A3 does much the same job but is a bit cheaper and a smidge more practical because of the hatchback boot.

The 35TDI offers the best bang for buck in our opinion. But the 35TFSI is equally as good if you can’t warrant a diesel. The cheaper, less powerful petrol and diesel options are fine, but feel a bit so-so in a premium brand.

Watch out on the options too – not all cars come with reversing cameras, and things like the Bang & Olufsen stereo can pump up the list price.
