Audi R8 V10 Plus v A3 1.0 TFSI comparison

Read the full article here. Audi's heap-topping R8 V10 Plus is eleven times more expensive than the carmaker's most affordable A3 small car, the 1.0 TFSI Sportback. But is the big-dollar supercar actually eleven times better? We pit them head to head in a wide variety of tests to find out.  ...

Audi R8 V10 Plus v Audi A3 1.0 TFSI comparison

The latest R8 V10 Plus, with an incredible 449kW and 560Nm from its naturally aspirated 5.2-litre V10, is the most-powerful road car Audi has ever devised. On paper, it's also the quickest. But power and pace comes at a price: almost $390k – $389,616 to be exact – before on-roads or before you even think about ticking any options boxes...

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.

And the winner was clear...

Volkswagen could face record fine, Justice Foster blasts ACCC and VW

Volkswagen’s German head office could be hit with an even bigger fine than the proposed $75 million penalty – already the highest of its type in Australia – for “misleading or deceptive conduct” on diesel vehicles that cheated emissions tests. However, the outcome of the hearing and the total amount of the fine may not be known for months after Justice Foster reserved his decision in the Federal Court in Sydney today...

2006 Audi A3 Sportback 2.0 FSI Ambition review

I must be stark raving mad – what was I thinking? Buying a 12-year-old European car with 215,000km. Almost everyone I’ve spoken to has scoffed at my choice while giving me that look that says “Are you made of money?”. Well, I’m here to bust some Euro myths. This is my $5000 Audi A3 2.0 FSI – a safe, stylish, surprisingly sporty Sportback that doesn’t cost a fortune to own...

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...
