Long time reader, first time poster.
I really like the look of the new A3 and I've been researching into them but I'm wondering if anyone has any real world MPG figures for the 1.8TFSI and the 2.0TDI?
I'd be looking at the S-Line trim in glacier white as I think it looks stunning.
I've been looking at the 2.0TDI purely because of its projected mpg returns. However I don't do much motorway driving, so I don't think I would ever get the mpg stated. So I was looking towards having the 1.8 TFSI instead, but I'm wondering how different the mpg would be between the two when just doing town driving / A road driving?
I currently have an A1 1.6TDI, which is a brilliant car but the engine really lacks the power I want and the 2 motorway journeys I've done I only got up to 50mpg as I believe diesel engines take a long time to run in, so I I'm not sure I'd ever get the benefit of their MPG, but I was just wondering what real world returns people are getting from the 2.0TDI in urban driving and the same driving but in the 1.8 TFSI.
I'd really appreciate any info as I'm trying to find out realistically how much less the 1.8 TFSI would be for my urban journeys.
Many thanks for taking the time to read this and hopefully reply
