Whenever a car manufacturer launches a new car it is worth taking a look at
the outgoing model because cars at the end of their production life are
often the best built.
A new generation of Audi A3 was launched last summer, so now is a good time
to snap up a used Mk 1 bargain. The original A3 was launched in September
1996 and was positioned as an upmarket alternative to the VW Golf. Despite
sharing many of the Golf's components, the A3 justified its higher price
with superior build quality.
Even today the earliest cars fetch close to £5,000 and are usually still
in excellent shape.
Initially only available with three doors and petrol engines, the A3 soon
had diesels added to its range, and a five-door version was introduced in
All the petrol engines are reliable and capable of high mileage. The
cheapest are the 101bhp 1.6 and the 125bhp 1.8; the 1.6 works hard if the
car is loaded, so the bigger engine is far more desirable.
The addition of a turbocharger to the
1.8 litre in the T Sport model Boosted power to 150bhp. The extra power and
torque make this the most sought-after petrol A3, but beware of used
examples that have had a performance upgrade "chip". The extra performance
is often gained at cost to engine and turbo life.
More powerful is the A3 T Sport quattro with four-wheel drive and 180bhp.
The additional power compensates for the weight of the quattro system, so
it's scarcely quicker, and you pay a penalty at the petrol pumps.
For ultimate performance there's the S3. Again with quattro and the 1.8
litre engine, this 210bhp model can reach 151mph and hit 62mph in 6.6sec. A
tribute to the car's desirability is that early-1999 examples still fetch
around half the original new price, so expect to pay £12,500 for a decent
If fuel economy is important, diesels are the obvious choice. Despite there
being only one engine size, there are four power outputs, and the 1.9 litre
unit is frugal and refined. Audi has used different injection set-ups to
achieve 90bhp, 100bhp, 110bhp and 130bhp — all versions capable of more
Cars built before July 2001 have either 90bhp or 110bhp units, and the more
powerful engine adds about £500 to the value — money well spent. In July
2001 Audi increased the power of both units to 100bhp and 130bhp
respectively. Again buyers will find a £500 differential exists on used
examples, and again it's worth paying the extra. The 130bhp version is a
The A3 comes in three trim levels: unbadged base model, SE and Sport. All
have alloys, alarm, antilock braking and front airbags. The SE gains
climate control, a front armrest and a useful split folding rear seat.
Sport models are distinguished by larger alloys, lowered suspension, sport
front seats and a sunroof in the place of climate control.
With the new Audi A3 now in the showrooms dealers are bound to be handling
more of the old versions in part exchange, so now could be the ideal time
to pick up a great deal.

Mit attraktivem Design, dynamischen Fahreigenschaften und hohem
Qualitätsniveau ragt der im Juni 1996 vorgestellte Audi A3 deutlich aus
dem Segment der Kompaktklasse heraus. Zunächst nur als Dreitürer
angeboten, erfährt die Modellpalette mit der Einführung des fünftürigen
Audi A3 eine attraktive Erweiterung. Durch die erhöhte Funktionalität und
Variabilität sollten besonders Frauen und junge Familien angesprochen
