2017 Audi A3 Cabriolet review

On paper, the Audi A3 Cabriolet offers a solid case for an affordable German convertible, but it leaves something to be desired once you get behind the wheel.

2017 Audi A3 review

Audi's A3 has long been the segment leader in its class. Now, with an expanded range and a face-lifted update that is more than skin deep, can the A3 retain its place at the top of the pecking order?

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.  ...

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.

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...

2019 Audi A3 spied

The new Audi A3 has been spied for the first time during development testing, ahead of a likely debut sometime next year. Shortly after images of the next-generation S3 Sportback were snapped earlier this week, photographers have spotted the normal version on European roads, wearing more subtle clothing (no wild skirts and spoilers here) and concealed exhaust pipes...

2019 Audi S3 Sportback spied

The next-generation Audi A3 hatch has been spied undergoing testing for the first time, sporting a face in keeping with the fresh Q3. Like the second-generation Q3, as well as the facelifted version of the current model, the new A3 will have an angular set of headlights with a teardrop element...

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...
