When it comes to fuel efficiency and driving pleasure, an approved used Audi A3 is a popular choice among motorists. As one of Audi's renowned compact luxury vehicles, the A3 combines a sleek design, advanced features, and impressive performance.
Let’s look into the engine options, the fuel efficiency of the Audi A3, exploring its miles per gallon (MPG) figures – perfect if you’re considering the ultimate hot hatch for your next car.
There are a few options when it comes to choosing the engine for your new or approved used Audi A3, with petrol, diesel and plug-in hybrid options available. Petrol wise, there is a 1.0-litre and 1.5-litre powertrain, producing 116 and 150 bHP respectively.
Diesel options are two, 2.0-litre engines, accompanied by a six- or seven-speed gearbox. The 30 TDI and the 35 TDI are great options for motorway drivers, and the motors pack a punch on those A-roads and motorways.
Additionally, the Audi A3 is also offered with a plug-in hybrid option. The hybrid combines a 1.4-litre petrol engine and an electric motor to make 148bHP and is set as standard to be in electric mode.
There are of course other settings available for the engine, including the ability to allow the car to choose between petrol or electric power, depending on the situation.
With a plug-in hybrid option available, this may seem the obvious choice for those looking for an economical new or approved used Audi A3. Naturally, it is the standout when it comes to the economy figures, depending on circumstances of course. Industry reviews state that more than 556 miles could be achieved from the 40-litre petrol tank.
This depends hugely on how you use the car, and an everyday figure, with minimal charging of the electric motor will see the figure more in the region of 50mpg.
Of the traditional motors, the 30 TDI with the manual gearbox is capable of over 60mpg. As you would possibly expect, the petrol motor comes in as slightly less economical, though the mild hybrid design of the engines on the new Audi A3 mean good economy not the less – as over 50mpg is possible on both petrol options.
