Audi's most eco-focused model, the hybrid A3 Sportback e-Tron, has received a tune-up that makes it a more electrifying prospect than ever before.
Whilst the A3 Sportback e-Tron may boast some seriously impressive eco credentials and innovative technology, it doesn't feel the need to shout about them.
Instead of the flashes of electric blue that adorn the body of other plug-in hybrid and electric vehicles, the Sportback e-Tron keeps things simple with a classic design that allows it to fit right in with the rest of Audi's A3 range. Thanks to a recent design re-think, the e-Tron benefits from the impressively wide grille, slimmer headlights and solid good looks. The e-Tron is also a Sportback, with the rear passenger doors adding to the car's solid and reliable appearance.
The interior of the A3 Sportback e-Tron remains the same as its sister vehicles in Audi's A3 range of cars. Thankfully that means it is made to the highest standards of quality, with plush, soft materials meeting sleek aluminium finishes and an easy-to-use interface in a cabin that is a pleasure to sit in.
The main difference between the inside of the e-Tron and other A3 interiors is that the hybrid features a power meter instead of the traditional rev counter, but even that is customisable if you grow distracted by the flashy graphics.
As the Audi A3 Sportback e-Tron is primarily a hybrid car, the key points of interest tend to focus on its emissions levels. The e-Tron produces the type of exceptionally low emissions that you would expect from a hybrid, with only 37g/km of CO2 being generated. It also has a 580-mile range and takes only 7.6 seconds to reach 60mph, which is pretty impressive by any standard.
The e-Tron also comes equipped with electromechanical power steering, autodrive select and alloy wheels as standard.
The A3 Sportback e-Tron holds a five-star crash rating from Euro NCAP, thanks to a focus on safety for the driver and all passengers.
The e-Tron comes with six airbags as standard, including a knee-airbag for the driver as well as a comprehensive Electronic Stabilisation Control (ESC) system which includes ABS, ARS and EDL. Active Lane Assist also aids the driver in staying within lane boundaries, and avoids collisions with gentle interventions.
