Audi A3 Sportback - 2.0 TDI and Eriba

Trevor Lord reviewed on a Audi A3 Sportback - 2.0 TDI (125 Kw/170 bhp year: june 2006 - 2016) and a Eriba Touring Troll 550 of (laden) 1215 kg.

I bought the Audi as a replacement for a 1.8 TDI C-Max. Children have flown and we wanted a compact car with enough power to pull the van. On that score it doesn't disappoint, very economical both solo & towing compared to the Ford. I am a little worried about the robustness of the clutch. It had to be replaced at 17,000 miles. I bought the car with 14000 miles on so have no idea how it was driven before that & I hadn't towed the van more than 200 yards with the car before it went so I'm confident it wasn't towing that caused it.
As a compact tow car it appears (clutch worries aside) excellent. For the two of us it's a comfortable car to drive and you can almost forget you're towing something (but so could you with the Ford C-Max).
The only downside is that after a few of the higher 'family' type cars like the C-Max the Audi is very low so getting in and out took a bit of getting used to (it's OK now I've got used to it, but perhaps it's designed for younger folk than us).
I won't be getting another one, but that's not because of it's towing ability, which is absolutely great. The Audi main dealer experience was so terrible & expensive I don't really want to support the brand.

Audi A3 Sportback - 2.0 TDI [DSG] and Avondale

Ian Bell reviewed on a Audi A3 Sportback - 2.0 TDI [DSG] (103 Kw/140 bhp year: november 2004 - 2016) and a Avondale Dart 380-2 of (laden) 1000 kg.

The Audi A3 tows very well with the automatic coping well with most situations, although it is sometimes handy to manually change gear at roundabouts and steel declines.
The Avondale Dart is usually fully loaded but I find running the tyres at 50psi reduces the tendency to pitch. The Audi is run at 39 all round. Seems a good match.

honestly no complaints about this outfit. Towed all the way from salford to manchester and no trouble apart from when i picked the mother in law up who was thumbing a lift well this changed things the whole outfit shook and it made the engine spragg and splutter but who cares a good tow

Audi A3 - 2.0 TDI and Coachman

Kevin Carruthers reviewed on a Audi A3 - 2.0 TDI (103 Kw/140 bhp year: june 2003 - september 2012) and a Coachman Amara 380/2 of (laden) 1205 kg.

I have been really pleased with the Audi A3. Lots of power and good fuel consumption - when towing and with a couple of bikes on the roof.
I was initially concerned at the low kerb weight of the Audi as stated on this site but in the boot of the car is the Audi's actual kerb side weight with optional extras and this states the weight as being 1444kg. This brings the percentage to 83%.
The sports suspension and low profile tyres also give very good stability.
