This car has the 1.6 8 valve petrol engine with 102 bhp coupled to a five speed manual gearbox. It can return a thrifty 40.9 mpg on the combined cycle, is a group 7 insurance and costs £190 per year to tax. Performance is nippy enough too, with a top speed of 115 mph and a 0-60 time of 11.7 seconds.

With its refined engine and slick gearchange this is a brilliant all rounder on the road. There is plenty of room in the cabin for four adults to travel in comfort (five would be a bit of a squeeze in the back though) and a spacious boot with split/folding rear seats to extend it even further when required.

This A3 was originally supplied by Bath Audi to its one and only owner – a gentleman from Chippenham. It comes with a full service history with six stamps in the book, all from the supplying Audi main dealer. Together with the MOT records this impeccable service record confirms the sensible mileage of just over 73,000 beyond doubt and also proves that this car has received the best possible maintenance throughout its life. It is presented in excellent condition throughout, drives like new and looks very smart in its gleaming metallic red paintwork with contrasting dark grey interior. It is set off externally by the sporty alloys and front fog lamps, plus the door mirror integrated side indicators and chrome front grille surround. The interior is enhanced by the nice to hold leather rimmed steering wheel, classy “Granite” metallic effect inlays on the centre console and doors, plus the chrome touches on the steering wheel, gearknob, glovebox lid and surrounding the air vents and instrument dials.
