Farewell report: Audi A3

Christofer Lloyd
Long term A3
Long term A3



Sometimes the best car for the job is the one you completely forget about. This was the case for me this month, after the A3 whisked me through the heavily-trafficked roads around north London on the way back from Heathrow. After making my way back from a car launch in Spain, it was 5pm by the time I collected the car – hell in London terms. Despite this, a combination of punchy diesel power, a smooth ride and comfortable seats meant that not even the M25 or the truly horrible weather could make the journey stressful.
