More of the Audi A3 Sedan 1.4 TFSI S-tronic Ambiente

Attached Image Singaporeans have always loved their sedans. Look at the amount of Mercedes-Benz and Toyota sedans on our roads if you aren't convinced.
 
Attached Image Not to be outdone, Audi introduced their A3 sedan with its 122bhp 1.4 TFSI engine. 
 
Attached Image While its power output is nothing to shout about, it goes about providing the A3 sedan with plenty of low end torque (200Nm of it from 1,400rpm) to make merging into highways a stress-free experience.  
 
Attached Image I personally felt the engine performed at its best if driven sedately. Revving the engine to its redline revealed slight breathlessness as with most turbo engines. .
 
Attached Image While the rest of my colleagues drove it pretty hard when we had the car, I tried a short eco-friendly run from the west to the central of singapore and I registered a similar 17km/L reading when we road tested the A3 Sportback
 
Attached Image Riding softer than its hatch sibling, the sedan settles into a nice cruise at highway speeds. While the steering is not the best of its kind, it provides enough feedback to the driver and weighs well.
 
Attached Image Inside, it is business as usual for Audi with probably the best cabin in its class. Cabin space is decent but sitting three at the back might be slightly uncomfortable for long drives up North. 
 
Attached Image We think the A3 would do well here with its handsome, crisp silhouette and a proper trunk. Seems like the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class just got itself a pretty decent rival!

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?

IMO cannot rival the CLA. Somehow this looks like a compact A4.

Personally, I think this is a much better car than the CLA. CLA has the looks but poor practicality as a sacrifice for looks. This is smart looking, practical and has the prestige, all the traits luxury car buyers are looking for. Would choose this over the CLA by a country mile and it cost less too, even compared to the less powered CLA180.
