Audi A3 Revealed as Best Compact Premium Car

The Audi A3 has recently been revealed as the best compact premium car at The Fleet News Awards.

Audi A3 – Over the Years

Audi first launched the A3 in 1996, inventing the modern, compact, premium hatchback, leaving other big car manufacturers wishing to following in suite. The main rivals to the A3 are currently most probably the BMW 1 Series and Mercedes-Benz A-Class.

Following the huge success of the Audi A3 and realising that it is an incredibly popular car choice today for many reasons, the majority of car manufacturers have understood the appeal of upmarket, compact, premium cars and in turn introduced their own – However, none have taken quite so well as the Audi A3.

Revised and updated in 2016 to include the latest and most modern technologies and a range of impressive safety features, the Audi A3 is now available in a whole range of models including but not limited to a three-door, a five-door Sportback and a four-door saloon. Some of the available models can be seen here:

Other new features that Audi introduced to this model include traffic jam assist which works with adaptive cruise control and Audi’s Stop&Go feature. This system is optional with car owners able to decide as and when they use it and works to keep cars at a safe distance from the vehicles in front, easily.

The Fleet News Awards

Showing just how great the A3 is and has become, it recently picked up the ‘Best Compact Premium Car’ award at The Fleet News and Awards, beating other great finalists including the BMW 1 series, Mercedes-Benz A Class and Mini Clubman, all of which are also amazing compact premium vehicles.

Top judges described the A3 as spacious with a vast range of engine and trim options and best-in-class residuals. They went on to say that the A3 offers low overheads for fleets and low benefit in-kind tax for all drivers. Basically they said that it is a great car that others struggle to compete with.
