Head to buyacar.co.uk for a great deal on a used Audi A3!

The A3 was crowned World Car of the Year in 2014, while our sister website Carbuyer named it Best Luxury Small Car at its annual awards in 2015. Carbuyer said the A3 came out on top in its class because of its ability to “demonstrate everything that makes an Audi special” and commended it for offering “a selection of engines that ranges from the very frugal to the very fast”. It also praised the A3 Sportback for being “practical, affordable to run and hugely desirable”. While strong residuals mean the A3 can be costly to buy used, we reckon it’s worth the premium for its blend of refinement, a strong image, build quality and efficiency. In this used review, Vicki Butler-Henderson advises how to buy a good second-hand example of the Mk3 Audi A3.
