The winner is…

Audi A3

Unadventurous styling didn’t stop the upmarket Audi A3 taking the top spot. Look under the skin and you’ll find one of the classiest cabins in the business, top-notch refinement and agile handling. Neat cylinder deactivation technology helps the 1.4-litre petrol deliver diesel-rivalling economy and emissions.

You voted for…

Mercedes A-Class

This is mental, in your own tests head to head the bmw 1 series is a better car, and there's no denying the Volvo v40 interior is much better than the A3, plus it's much better equipped and has better economy and lower emissions. Maybe you should read your own reviews before deciding on the 'best compact hatch'!!
