Audi A3 used: Material quality and workmanship are right
Details such as the three-spoke plastic steering wheel without multifunction buttons, the lack of cruise control and the absence of the classic look little premium Audi-board computer. Such features are now de rigueur even in many small cars of the same age. Material quality and processing quality are happier.
The body and chassis don’t show any weaknesses even on patched country roads. Therefore it works A3 high-quality even without premium gimmicks (which drive up the price of used cars), such as a heated steering wheel, massage seat, Bang & Olufsen high-end sound system or matrix LED headlights.
Specifications Audi A3 1.0 TFSI
85 kW (115 hp) at 5000 rpm
The entry-level engine, a small one-liter TFSI with three cylinders, should suffice. Unloaded, the powerfully turning 115 hp engine does an amazingly confident job. Motorway speed 180 is no problem. However, the S-Tronic dual-clutch transmission sorts the gears with annoying inertia. On the other hand, the smallest TFSI engine is extremely economical: consumption of less than six liters can be achieved without any problems.
1.0 TFSI becomes 30 TFSI
Important for interested parties: At the same time as the changeover to Euro 6d-Temp changed Audi in August 2018 the model names, the 1.0 TFSI has been trading as the 30 TFSI since then. Of course, the high-torque and economical Euro 6 TDI models are more interesting for frequent drivers. These were initially marketed as 1.6 TDI and 2.0 TDI, from August 2018 as 30 TDI, 35 TDI and 40 TDI.
