2015 Audi A3 Cabriolet review : Grand Pacific Drive

Read the article here. It's time for a road trip in our Audi A3 Cabriolet long term test car, this time with a friend and colleague of mine. Kat and I head south from Sydney, through the Royal National Park and down along the Grand Pacific Drive towards Wollongong to find a great spot for lunch, a swim and some body boarding.

Audi A3 e-tron v BMW i3 v Citroen C4 Cactus v Toyota Prius: Economy comparison test part two

By now you’ve hopefully read part one of this economy comparison test, where we set out for 100 kilometres of urban driving. The aim of part one was to find out which of the four cars on test – Audi A3 e-tron, BMW i3 range-extender, Citroen C4 Cactus and Toyota Prius – was the most efficient, city-friendly commuter. And the winner was clear...

Audi A3 e-tron v BMW i3 v Citroen C4 Cactus v Toyota Prius: Economy comparison test part one

With fuel prices hitting decade lows in recent times, there has arguably never been a worse time to buy an economy-focused car. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t some great options out there for people who are thinking about long-term sustainability and doing their bit for the environment...

Audi A3 Cabriolet v BMW 2 Series Convertible : Comparison review

With the sunlight hours diminishing by the day, the Audi A3 Cabriolet and the BMW 2 Series Convertible may not be at the top of your automotive wish list. Ironically, however, as we’re busy digging out our trackies and Uggs in preparation for circa-20-degree days, our friends in parts of Europe are doing the same – though they’re stripping off snow jackets and boots (in place of our footy shorts and thongs) in anticipation of what they depressingly label ‘summer’...

Audi A3 outselling Ford Focus in 2016, as luxury models surge

2014 Audi A3 Sportback 1.4 TFSI Attraction Review

The annual price for the navigation system update is a blatant unmitigated ripoff. Although I love my Audi, my next vehicle will be a BMW. This is purely a moral judgement based on the current price of navigation uodates. This may sound petty to the multitudes but this is my perception. Again it is not a case of money but sheer principle...

2014 Audi A3 Review

Four adults, a surfboard, a kayak, two weeks worth of luggage, and a long 1,000km interstate journey. So far, so good. As you have no doubt read the title of this review, I am sure you will know what is coming next. So – can two couples travel 1,000km in a small hatchback over two days, and still remain on speaking terms at the end of the journey? First up, let's look at the luggage carrying capacity...

2014 Audi A3 1.4 TFSI Review

  Great build quality and beautifully finished. Exceptional economy and surprising performance from the 1.4 L. Have been averaging under 6l/100km on long trips and under 8 around town. Acceleration and overtaking performance is amazing and comparable if not better than our previous SP23 Mazda. Economy is far better than the Mazda though...

2013 Audi A3 Sportback 2.0 TFSI Quattro Amb Review

This top of the line A3 series model comes with 1.8 engine but it was the best compromise, not too powerful for my wife and not too weak for me. Still it does 0 to 100 km/h under seven seconds as promised. When I retired our point was that the number of driving wheels must stay at four though we don’t need two cars any more. Now with 13 months and 20...
