Used Audi A3 2003 – Buyer’s Guide

Why buy a Used Audi A3?

The A3 is Golf-based with the full range of VW group engines, a flawless interior, neat styling and the option of Quattro four wheel drive.

Highly desirable, the A3 is likely to hold onto its value which means, even though you pay more, you get that money back at re-sale. Image wise the A3 is in a class of its own and also the car is still in production which further helps residuals.

Which is the best used Audi A3?

The 1.9TDi diesel engine is tough and proven and for this reason it's the one we recommend if going for pure value-for-money. It offers excellent economy of up to 53 MPG and prices are softer compared to the 2.0TDi diesel and 2.0 FSi petrol cars. But they do both drive better.

Prices for the A3 are fairly spec- sensitive. The £500 premium for sport models and £1000 premium for the S-Line spec is to be avoided as the big wheels and hard suspension ruin the A3's refined ride. Go for the SE trim.


Fault Checks for the Audi A3

What should I aim to pay for an Audi A3?

Pay £11,000 for a three year old 1.9Tdi 5 door model with around 40,000 miles on the clock. If you can live with the bills the 3.2 petrol Quattro is a bit of a steal at £15,000 for a comparable car. These have four wheel drive and come loaded with options.

The best time to buy is at three years old when the first MOT is completed. Depreciation can be as high as 15% in that year on a petrol. After this any A3 should depreciate at a steady rate.

Audi A3 Prices & Depreciation – Graph - Fuel differences

Used Car Expert recommends that you try to buy after a big drop in depreciation and before the next one, so with the current Audi A3 you would aim to buy a 6 year old and you can keep it for some time before needing to worry about a big drop in value.

Diesel Audi A3 cars lose most over the first year (from new to 1 year old), so that is the best ‘nearly new’ buy in terms of car for money.

Diesel Audi A3 cars lose least between years 1 and 3, so this is the best buy if you want to keep the car for a while.

Diesel Audi A3 cars lose least between years 2 and 4, so that is the best buy on older cars.
