Audi A3 1.9 TDI (130ps) 5d (2002/02) - Owner Review

it's a great car for just about anything except going off road. Not too big not too small. good miles/gallon too. It has enough torque to make a difference but not so much that you go like a bomb and don;t realise that you are doing 90 in a 70.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
i love it, sedate in the city - no road rage fast on the motorway, just cruises along nicely. great on corners and goes up hill with just the right amount of speed that you don't feel like a hedgehog crawling up. gets out of sticky situations with enough acceleration that you feel safe over taking.

What's it like to park?
a doddle - like I said not to big not too small
