Also Driven: Audi A3



No information available.


Unlike many carmakers, Audi doesn’t have a bespoke brand for its low emissions models. So the 15in alloys and lowered ride height to reduce drag are the few external signs that help identify this 99g/km CO2 derivative from others in the A3 range.

Only available as a three-door, this derivative with a start/stop system boasts no-cost VED and low BIK plus combined fuel economy of 74.3mpg. The specification is pretty lean for the price – the value-conscious retail customer would be better off in a Volvo C30. But for Audi dealers the upsell opportunities abound.
