The new engine directly replaces the outgoing 2.0 TDI 177PS unit in both Saloon and Avant models, and offers a drop in CO2 from 132g/km to 114g/km and a rise in combined MPG from 47.1 to 55.4 mpg.

It's not about size either, i'd pick a Golf over a Passat and an A3 over an A4..... until today when i discovered that an A3 Saloon will be coming the the UK this autumn. Apparently the A3 saloon will be officially launched at the Shanghai motor how next month but below are pictures taken from an American photoshoot.
