Audi A3 Saloon priced from £24,275

Following its debut earlier this year at the Geneva Motor Show, Audi has unveiled pricing for the A3 saloon with first deliveries in September.

The range starts from £24,275 for the 148bhp 2.0-litre TDI, the 138bhp 1.4-litre TFSI starts from £24,275 and the range topping 178bhp 1.8-litre TFSI petrol S-Line model from £28,105.

The A3 Saloon has the same cabin space as the Sportback, but offers more seats-up luggage capacity thanks to an increased length of 14cm. It is also  11 millimetres wider and nine millimetres lower. Luggage space is 425 litres with the rear seats in place – 45 litres more than its five-door counterpart.

Sport and S line versions ride  on 17-inch and 18-inch alloy wheels respectively and come with sports suspension, but can be specified at no extra cost with more comfort-oriented standard suspension.

The hot S3 saloon will follow in early 2014 with a 296bhp 2.0-litre TFSI engine. 0-62mph comes in 4.9 seconds when equipped with the optional six-speed double-clutch S-tronic automatic gearbox. The standard six-speed manual does it in 5.3 seconds.
