The Audi A3 is now available with a highly efficient new engine which increases fuel economy to almost 70mpg. The 1.6-litre turbocharged diesel generates 105PS and 250Nm of torque which is identical to the larger unit it replaces.

The new engine is available on the A3, Sportback, and Cabriolet variants. The A3 and Sportback reach 62mph in 11.4 seconds, charge to 121mph, emit 109g/km of CO2, and achieve a combined average of 68.9mpg. However, the A3 Cabriolet is marginally slower and less efficient than its more sober stable-mate.

The A3's impressive fuel economy is partially due to start-stop technology. This system cuts power when the vehicle is in neutral and the clutch is released. It then automatically re-starts, within two-tenths of a second, once the clutch is depressed. Audi claim this reduces emissions by approximately 5g/km.

The Audi A3 1.6 TDI is available from £17,485 to £20,645 on-the-road.
