Car Review - Audi A3 Sportback 1.8 TFSI S-tronic Ambiente (A)
11 Sep 2013  |  Audi Reviews
The second of the A3 lineup gets a bigger 1.8-litre lump for a more sprightly performance. But will it triumph the already potent 1.4-litre base model?

A satisfied new owner  
 
Got my new car 26 December 2014 from Premium Auto. It's been three months, so far here are my findings; 1. Having driven VW/Skoda cars before, in comparison, the Audi feels much better put together, quality materials, insulation, road presence and confidence it gives. 2. Noise insulation is superb except for the tyre noise caused by the sports derivative tyres that came with the car. Perhaps it should be shod with Bridgestone Turanza series instead? 3. After doing 2500km, the 1.4 TFSI starts to feel more lively. When new from the showroom, it was a bit lazy from take off but when at speed, especially if the rpm is from 1500, the take off for overtaking is noticeable. 4. Noticed a lag below 1200 rpm or from stand still, there was a slight hesitation when you floor the pedal when you move off. In comparison to my previous Skoda Octavia 1.4 TFSI, the difference is stark (although I had a remap done which gave it 150 bhp and about 250nm of torque from 1750rpm). That skoda, you can feel the G-force pressing against you. In the A3, hardly noticeable. 5. Fuel consumption is somewhat better than the Octavia. 12.5km/l mixed. Up to 18/19km/l on the highway, quite close to the published 20km/l. 6. Features wise, it has all the bells and whistles that one can hope for, although a navigation system would have been welcomed, it's not very expansive nowadays. I'm not really into installing after market. 7. Advice for those who wants to do a remap, all the ports have been sealed and breaking those seals would void warranty. I'd wait for the car to pass the warranty period before considering it. 8. Space wise, it a lot more spacious now with the MQB platform and longer wheelbase compared to my MK 5 Octavia. All in all I'm happy with the purchase and would recommend anyone who is considering it.

I am Surprised by the new A3  
 
It wasn't on my mind to go for the A3 to start with, being budget conscious during the high COE prices, I was looking forward a nice entry level vehicle for the quality German engineering. Shopping around, there were quite a few new car launches, but once I had stepped into the new A3, I was very surprised by the quality of improvements that are considered in this new A3. Previous model of A3 didn't really catch my eye, but this new one blew my mind (as well as my budget) away. After one test drive, I was able to feel what this little monster is able to achieve and "trying" the Audi drive select model for the first time, my passengers and myself felt the difference.. The quality materials within gives it a "wow" factor, and although there are plastic materials used, none of the materials felt "cheap" With the current COE prices hovering at a high level, other makes or models will not feel as good as what I had felt seating in the A3, best of all, the price difference between them are not significantly higher... Driving the A3 for one month plus now, I can say that this is one of my favorite cars ever driven...
