The new A3 Sportback has been given a recent facelift inside and out by Audi since 2013 but, is it worthy of its popularity or do rivals such as the Mercedes A class, the Volkswagen Golf or BMW 1 Series out perform this sporty five door?

Mat takes you through everything the A3 Sportback has to offer from boot space to engine types and even the carwow flick test in our 4k review.
