The 2016 Audi A3 hatchback offers more tech, better fuel economy and lower running costs. As well as a revised engine range, which includes an impressive 1.0-litre petrol, the facelifted Audi A3 also boasts new headlights, bumpers and revised equipment. Elsewhere, it’s the brilliant three-door hatchback it always was, with the option of the clever Audi Virtual Cockpit.

  1. I have a question when the tax changes in 2017 how is it going to affect people by paying £40000 outright to having something on PCP as on PCP you would normally change car before you got to the £40000 limit ?

  2. Amazing that one litre engines are now driving posh cars and are so refined! I like the A3, but I think I'd probably still go for the Golf – it's very smart and carries rear passengers in more comfort.
