new to ASN and about to place a order for my very first ever Audi. Have chosen the A3 Sportback S Line but unsure to go for 1.6 TDI with S-Tronic or 2.0 TDI manual. Would love the latter in S-Tronic but not got the budget. I have only managed to test drive the 1.8 petrol so would love some guidance on helping me make my decision.
I drive around 25,000 per year and about 20,000 is on UK motorways. I have always driven a manual and my previous cars have always been Golf TDI GT or GTD.
Fuel economy is a priority due to the miles total per year. I am no speed freak but like to have the ability and choice to injection some power when required or just for fun and pure enjoyment.
I been informed that the 1.6 uses a lesser rear suspension to the 2.0 thus a more bumpy ride. As I mentioned the test drive I had was a 1.8 petrol with S-tronic and just loved the easy and comfort or the auto but if the 1.6 is really under powered then I will choose the 2.0.
Any advice, tips, pros and cons is very much appreciated.
