The Audi A3 Sportback has taken the title of What Car? Used Car of the Year 2020. The model has been highly acclaimed by What Car? since it won the coveted overall Car of the Year gong when it was new in 2013. It has since gone on to win Family Car of the Year award multiple times.
The What Car? judges said: “Picking just one car from such a large and competitive field was a major feat, with so many excellent rivals offering great value for money. In the end, though, the A3 Sportback won because it combines all the qualities we were looking for in its particular class while still offering outstanding value for money at its age and price point.”
“Although this model is now nearing the end of its production cycle we think it’s just as impressive today as it was back then.
“It’s great to drive, for starters, and it comes with a classy interior that few rivals can match. It rides and handles superbly too, and it's wonderfully refined and comfortable to spend time in – its interior is both spacious and well equipped.
“It’s also far more desirable than any family hatchback has a right to be, and it comes with a class-leading infotainment system. Finally, you get a great range of engines to choose from, whether you’re after an economical diesel or a punchy petrol. It’s a fantastic car as well as a terrific used buy, and a thoroughly deserving winner.“
