Audi A3 hatchback (Sportback) 2003 - 2012 review - CarBuyer

Audi A3 hatchback 2014 review: http://bit.ly/1cvLxli Subscribe to the Carbuyer YouTube channel: http://bit.ly/17k4fct Subscribe to Auto Express: http://subscribe.autoexpress.co.uk/cb The Audi A3 is available in three and five-door bodystyles and is one of the best premium hatchbacks on the market. Thanks to its smart, understated design and superior build quality, it's desirable and hangs onto its value exceptionally well. A wide choice of engines is offered, plus manual, automatic and semi-automatic gearboxes - all of which are tough and reliable. A recent 2008 restyle made it look even sharper. The premium badge and smart styling are a big part of the A3's appeal. It's also good to drive, but while it's refined and well built its chassis lacks the sparkle of mainstream rivals like the Ford Focus. The A3's diesel engines offer great fuel economy and tend to be worth more second-hand. The five-door A3 Sportback builds on the appeal of the three-door hatchback. The only difference is a redesigned rear, that creates an extra 20 litres of boot space. You still get the same safe and predictable driving experience and a large choice of engines. The model is best suited to young families. Do you own this car? Let us know what you think about it with the Driver Power Survey http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/front_website/driverpower/2011

Audi A3 Sportback (hatchback) 2013 review - CarBuyer
Full review: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/audi/a3/sportback/review Subscribe to the Carbuyer YouTube channel: http://bit.ly/17k4fct Subscribe to Auto Express: http://subscribe.autoexpress.co.uk/cb The Audi A3 Sportback is a five-door version of the A3 hatchback. There's a bit more to it than that, however, as the Sportback is longer than the three-door, which helps free up a lot more rear legroom and a tiny bit more boot space. It's designed to rival the BMW 1 Series, the new Mercedes A-Classand the Volvo V40, and it actually trumps all of them for practicality. On top of that, it has the best interior in this class, featuring impeccable build quality and a very stylish design. From behind the wheel it's grown-up, comfortable and relaxing. Simply put, the Audi A3 Sportback is one of the best all-round models on sale.

Audi A3 hatchback 2014 review: http://bit.ly/1cvLxli Subscribe to the Carbuyer YouTube channel: http://bit.ly/17k4fct Subscribe to Auto Express: http://subscribe.autoexpress.co.uk/cb The Audi A3 was the original posh hatchback, swiftly followed by the Mercedes A-Class and the BMW 1 Series. More recently it's been attacked by ever-higher-quality Volkswagen Golfs and Ford Focuses, but the latest A3 moves the game on significantly. It's now the most premium of premium hatchbacks, with the familiar Audi head-turning looks but a new sense of style inside. It's a gadget lovers delight, with lots of hi-tech equipment. There's a range of advanced, efficient petrol and diesel engines, while a greater emphasis on ride quality makes it more comfortable, although there's still some work to do in the sportier models. There's more space inside than in the mark twoA3 and the current model has a five-star Euro NCAP safety rating. Offered initially as a three-door, the five-door Sportback and a convertible will join the lineup in 2013, with the first ever A3 saloon appearing soon after. This is a crucial car for Audi, designed to appeal to ambitious young professionals.

Audi A8 saloon review - CarBuyer
Audi A8 saloon 2014 review: http://bit.ly/1gAKVwl Subscribe to the Carbuyer YouTube channel: http://bit.ly/17k4fct Subscribe to Auto Express: http://subscribe.autoexpress.co.uk/cb It doesn't matter if you're looking for a car to drive, or to be driven in, the A8 is thoroughly impressive in both areas. It packs a host of clever technology to make the driving experience as seamless as possible, including lights that are connected to the sat-nav and will illuminate junctions, bend round corners and even dip when they sense oncoming traffic. A system called Audi Drive Select also features, and allows drivers to tweak the steering, suspension and gearbox to make the car more sporty or more comfortable. The cabin itself is finished in high-grade materials and is very logically laid out. Customers looking for a bit more space to stretch out in the rear can opt for the long wheelbase version.
