i love the way you guys conduct the review.
But if you can lose that background music it would be even better.
I would like to hear what you guys say clearly and the music is almost
always there as an obstruction.
please think about it

Harsh Manchanda says:

brilliant car, but sadly, the same engine range with great dynamics are
also available in the much cheaper Jetta and Octavia :/

Rioz Sayed says:

Kanwar Anand says:

Superb vs a3?

Kaushik Kamble says:

Decent Review..
Is the location Lavasa?

Gaurav Sharma says:

PD – how in the world did you do this trick (or is it a trick in the first
place :-)) ?.
At video track points 1:07, 1:08 and 1:09 the DRLs of your test mule A3
flashed alternately. How did you do that ? I can’t seem to figure it out on
my A4 (Premium (not premium plus)). See if you can educate me, or I should
put it this way – pls enlighten me :-). Thx in advance.

Kanwar Anand says:

Test drove this today….oh my god. If the backseat was decent…I don’t
know guys,,,someone please help and advise. What other good sedans in this
mid 20 range guys. Considering attraction model.

Siddhesh Rane says:

They should have launched 1.4 Petrol and 1.6 Diesel engine variants, Their
pricing would have been competitive then. Also why they want to compete
with hatchbacks of Merc and BMW. Audi is using Jetta engine 2.0 TDi 140 bhp
engine, why not bring more engine options, compete and beat all the likes
of Chevy Cruze, Jetta, Corolla, Elantra. It would have been a complete wipe
out! Hoping India gets all variants of engine that Audi India give to
international markets.

gives you more space than an A4. Also . I think you should do a comparo bwt
these two

1st to watch

yash dixit says:

the limited slip diff is new in the segment but not really needed in this
car because as charles said it was more pointed towards comfort and LSD are
really helpful in fast and tight corners and not many people might drive
this fast into a corner considering there might be a cow there at the end
of the corner but they are really useful in mud and gravel which is
abundant in our conditions
the amount of kit given in this car is really mind boggling if and only if
it doesnt break the 25 lakh barrier otherwise it wont be such a bargain
because you get the octavia with the same engine and almost most of the kit
but costs around 21ish lakhs so lets see all depends on the price

but for an enthusiast a pretty good city car

but then i dont get audi people they gave this car an LSD and then they
gave it soft suspension thats like putting sugar in a hot curry. They
shouldve decided what they wanted this car to become a good handling sedan
or a comfortable sedan. like BMW knows that it wants all of its cars to
handle well so they give all their cars really stiff suspension and now
they handle well but they crash into potholes and bumps like all hell has
broken loose.

its still a pretty good city car but its a bit confusing :p

umesh tilak says:

Nice review. … loved the SAT NAV screen popping out of the dash….the
arrow head DRL’s are also quite stylish …. but as u guys have mentioned
handling has to be top class if we are driving an Audi …. looking forward
to the detailed review…. cheers

Chaitanya Vedak says:

I would like to see the Roohaani Taqat of Satyen, to Emerge from the Boot
like that..

Binay Siddharth says:

+powerdriftofficial : guys can we have a comparison between A3 and Octavia
: I am aware that the Badge of AUDI holds superior to Skoda, but that would
be something which would be interesting like the one you did for Ninza and

Devaansh Patra says:

Sajo Joseph says:

Hi team at PD, long time viewer, infrequent commenter.
I think you guys do a far better job of hosting than Ten Hut does. (It’s
nothing personal, Ten Hut, I honestly stop watching his reviews very often)
I think Charles and Sagar should get way more airtime than Ten Hut.

Mani Prashanna says:
