Audi A3 1.4 TFSI COD 2016 Review | Snapshot

The 1.4 cylinder-on-demand turbo four cylinder is available in Sportback ($39,900), Sedan ($41,500) and Cabriolet ($49,000) bodystyles.

To the 1.0's spec you can add leather trim (some real, some not), 17-inch alloys, aluminium trim in the interior, paddle shifters, more interior lighting, power adapter for the rear seats and boot and luggage nets.

On the road it's good fun, covering ground at a reasonable clip and the extra chunk of torque over the 1.0 making overtaking slightly less of a butt-clencher. The engine is a distant hum and the seven-speed a good, positive shifter for most of the time. The 1.4 is more refined than the 1.0, especially waking up at the traffic lights, while it uses barely more fuel. The cylinder-on-demand fuel saving appears to be effective without taking anything away from the drive.

The next step upwards in the A3 range is the two-wheel drive 2.0 TFSI.
