Anyone have any inside knowledge of when we can expect to see quattro on the TDI sportbacks, and the 184ps TDI engine for ordering? Could do with knowing pricing, CO2, mpg etc.
My 170 quattro is due for replacement soon, and for the first time with a company car, top of my list for successor is a new one of the same (well newer model etc), so impressed I have been with the A3. For me, the perfect blend of performance, economy, company car tax efficiency, practicality, and style (not in any particular order)!
Shortlist so far:
184 tdi quattro SB ( if available in time)
330d If I can get away with the lease payments - looks a beast! Never had a BMW. They make so much sense on paper, have test driven a few, but don't like the image. I would make an exception for this!
Mazda 6 sport 2.2d (yes, really). Not driven one yet, but very cheap on the tax (and lease), loads of kit, and seems to make a lot of sense. Don't flame me on this - it's only an outline shortlist...!
