Sportback 35 TDI diesel 4×2 automatic
Here, Green NCAP tested the 2020 model of the Audi A3 35 TDI Sportback with S-tronic automatic transmission. This is a compact vehicle targeting sporty buyers and offering high levels of comfort and functionality. To that end, the 2-litre diesel engine seems a very good choice and convinces not only with reasonable fuel consumption values but also by scoring well for clean air, by minimising the output of pollutants. The performance of the state-of-the-art exhaust aftertreatment system remained robust and effective under all test conditions but additional improvements are possible, especially for short trips with a cold engine start and particle number emissions. The emitted greenhouse gases are not unusual for a vehicle of such configuration and are what cap the overall result of the A3 35 TDI Sportback at 3 stars, with a weighted Overall Index of 5.7.
