Audi is a car manufacturer that has always been known for its quality. I think they are certainly worth the extra money for the comfort and quality which the small A3 S line certainly has. From the outside the S3 is a cut about the lower models with lots of extra detail; I particularly like the large front bumper which makes the car look very sporty. The LED headlights and the indicators on the mirrors add to the feeling of getting what you pay for.
From the inside, I love sitting in this car. The seats are part leather, part fabric which is good for in the summer because leather can get very hot. The seats are positioned very low on the floor to make the driver and front passenger feel like a part of the car which will add to comfort. The seats can be lowered or lifted if necessary. From the front seats there the window screen seems very but there is very good visibility. The seats also have extra material on the top corners to hold the passenger in position when going round corners.
To get into the car, it can be a little awkward at times because the doors are quite small, and do not open in one smooth motion; they can be opened to three different positions. The steering wheel has the usual radio control which would be expected on this model.
Sitting in the back of the car, there is not much room for tall people, which results in my head being very near to the roof. However, if the front seat if forward a little, I only have to slouch a little and it is ok.
This model has a 1.6 petrol engine which can do at least 50-60 mpg on a run which is good for a petrol engine. The petrol tank is 55 litres which would cost around £70 to fill up depending on price.
As a result of the high quality, Audi’s hold there value which is good if you change your car every couple of years. I would certainly recommend this car to anyone who wants a small yet sports car, as long as they have a good pot of money to pay for it. However, there is an issue of how common the car is, which may put some people off.
