Ten Second Review
Audi A3 Sportback Lease Review - One of the main things to shout about with the Audi A3 Sportback range is the engine capability. With a solid mix of petrol and diesel alternatives theres a choice there to satisfy most types of driver on the road. One of the best performers out there is the 1.4L turbo petrol edition, which allows for some punchy take-offs but also has the finesse to be smooth when needed. However if you're not too fussed about having that big hitting petrol launch you're possibly better off with a diesel engine as the economy boost really goes down a treat and these cars are quiet in any form. Whether you're choosing an entry level engine at 103bhp or going top of the range peaking at 181bhp the engines never leave you feeling underpowered. It's really just a matter of preference as to what you'd like under the bonnet.
As is consistent throughout the Audi A3 range there are three suspension settings that drivers can choose from. The SE is the highest sitting, the Sport being the middle ground and lowest of all is the S Line suspension. All offer their own advantages but if you're not into finely tweaked specialist driving the SE is a good all-rounder which should see you right.
As mentioned before the drive itself is quiet, but what we didn't mention is the smoothness of this car's movements. It seems to glide along the road, carrying about what could easily have been an unsteady bulk very gracefully. If you want something that feels quality when you're going from A to B then the A3 Sportback won't leave you disappointed.
Inside the car there's a lot to talk about with a smart dashboard allowing the driver to easily manage functions for themselves and passengers easily. Audi are well known for being a technically advanced company and even in the most basic models you aren't short changed. The seating and other fixtures are basic but comfortable and have a look of quality about them that is something which Audi does well - delivering a refined product no matter what type of buyer they're targeting.
