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’...

2017 Audi A3: Australian line-up detailed

It seems a done deal that the 2017 Audi A3 range will bring with it a three-cylinder option as a price leader when it launches here later this year. The current Audi A3 range is headlined by the 1.4 TFSI model, which will be dropped as part of the updated range. That leaves a gap for a new model to fill the role of the most affordable A3… enter the new 1...

2017 Audi A3 revealed ahead of Australian launch: New engines, upgraded tech on-board

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

Sometimes certain sales figures contextualise general car industry trends rather neatly. The fact the Audi A3 hatch and sedan range is outselling the Ford Focus hatch and sedan in Australia this year is one such instance. According the VFACTS industry figures, the little German hatch and sedan line-up has managed 1033 sales in 2016, up 5.7 per cent...

2010 Audi A3 Sportback 1.8 TFSI Ltd Ed Review

When I found this A3, I knew it was time for my upgrade. After having Audi's in the past, I feel right at home in my A3! I purchased the A3 used at my local Audi Centre with just under 90,000kms and have done 5,000 mostly happy miles in the vehicle. My example was an MY11 1.8TFSI Limited Edition; featuring extras such as Xenon Headlights, Navigation, 18" Alloys, Roof Rails and more over the standard 1...

2016 Audi A3 1.4 TFSI Attraction Cod Review

Owned it since Brand new. Under $50k, one of the best looking/value for money 'luxury'(I've used that word very loosely) car sedans. If you can negotiate well, you should be able to pick on up for just under $45k driveaway, making it quite the bargain! Personally looks - this car is up there with it's other german rivals (Merc C Class, BMW 3 Series, Merc CLA)...

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...
