Short Review

The Audi A3 Sportback e-tron plug-in hybrid makes some interesting numbers. It's claimed to return 176.6mpg, emit 37g/km of CO2 and get to 62mph in just 7.6 seconds. Real world economy is around a third of this number, but you'll still be getting yourself a very efficient car indeed. Recent improvements add a little extra showroom sheen.

Verdict

Some may say that it is only a VW Golf in a premium wrap, but there is no denying that the A3 Sportback has its merit, especially for buyers that want the premium badge, without sacrificing the practicality that a family hatchback offers. The A3 Sportback not only does that, but it adds a great driving experience, strong and efficient engines and a very well-thought-out cabin of a high quality, comparing favourably to the Mercedes A-Class and BMW 1 Series in most of the areas.

However, most of the competitors in the family hatchback market, like the sister model Volkswagen Golf, or the new Ford Focus, became good enough to compete in the premium segment, with much lower prices – the A3 Sportback is an expensive car, with very expensive options. It might be a great all-round car, but certainly not a cheap one.
