Audi - A3

Strengths: Premium quality and feel from Audi’s smallest saloon. Just at home in the town or on the highways. Practical and spacious too.

Weakness: Quite expensive to buy new as they’re all fully imported. Not the biggest dealer network and harder to resell.

Our view: Good to drive in both 1.4T front-wheel drive and 1.8T Quattro versions. Build quality is awesome both inside and out. Interior looking a bit plain these days but no denying the feel-good aspect of the driving environment and experience. The new model launched in Europe already so look for some bargains of the current range

Do I really need anything bigger?

Here’s CarAdvice from Australia comparing the A3 saloon with its Mercedes rival the CLA saloon and it seems to better its Mercedes rival with a smoother engine and generally nicer drive.

Despite the A3 saloon being out in the market for almost 5 years now, it remains a handsome car which looks pretty current still. It’s only when you step inside the car that you realize the game has moved on when you look at the competitors in the price range namely the CLA200 and even the in-house VW Golf hatchback.

You get a 1.4 TSI power plant with 150bhp for RM239k for married to a 7-speed S Tronic transmission that gives a 0-100kmh time of 8.2 secs and on to a top speed of 224kmh. which are very decent figures for a 1.4 engine. The latest digital dash is very cool but is a cost option extra.

Anything you need to know?

The A3 is a quality product which will give you years of pleasurable ownership experience. It’s quite shocking how much the game has moved on with in-car entertainment and technology expectations so much so that this 5 year old design seems to come from a previous time already.
With the new model A3 released in Europe but no signs of any development in light of Covid shutting down most of car production worldwide, you may be able to find a run-out unit of the Malaysia current A3 model available at attractive prices.
