Audi A3 Sportback video review

Watch our video review of the all-new Audi A3 Sportback before it arrives in the UK next year

Audi A3 Sportback

Audi has added a couple more doors to its popular A3 in an effort to increase appeal and boost practicality – but is the A3 Sportback worth the extra cash?

At £620 more than the three-door, the Sportback adds a slightly larger boot and a lengthened wheelbase. The latter means more space in the rear, while the ride feels more comfortable without compromising the car’s handling.

It’s available with the same engine and trim combinations as you’ll find on the three-door, with the addition of standard-fit roof rails and a subtle rear spoiler.

With fierce competition from the new Mercedes A-Class and established BMW 1 Series, the Audi A3 Sportback has set itself a tough challenge. Read our review and watch the video to see what we think of the new five-door hatch.
