CarAdvice is rolling out a baker’s dozen new video reviews this week, starting with four cars from the booming light and small car segments: the Suzuki Alto, the Nissan Tiida, the Mazda3 and the Audi A3.


Finally today we have the Audi A3: a premium vehicle in the small car segment. With prices starting at $36,400 for the A3 Attraction model (three Altos/two Tiidas plus change) and scaling all the way to $70,900 for the top-spec S3, the A3 has established itself as the most popular car in Australia’s small premium segment.

Last year it controlled 25.4 percent of the segment, narrowly beating the Mercedes-Benz B-Class and the MINI Cooper.

Is it really more than $10,000 better than the Volkswagen Golf? Last year, 1975 people said ‘yes’.

Remember to check back in on Wednesday when we release another four reviews from the medium and large car segments.

    Thanks for posting the video reviews. Lots of tokens used up in those ones…

    The Alto review seems a little out of date considering the Barina Spark and new Micro aren’t mentioned.

    Some of you may also be interesting in playing the ‘Suzuki Alto Review Drinking Game’. Every time the young lad says “on that same token” you have a shot and every time the other guy cuts him off, you have another shot.

    Its a fun game but dont expect it to last more than a minute.

      Good point about the Micra. Its a cracking car for the money. Just a fraction dearer than the Alto but seems like a much more substantial car to look at. Its also newer, as you pointed out.

    “Alto is just another air bag for Land Cruiser” absolutely hilarious guys, very funny touch there. I can’t stop laughing.
