A3 1.6TDi "Sport" has gone
After my initial thoughts that the fuel economy was no better than the petrol Astra it was actually a dramatic example of how diesels are not that great when cold.
Once some longer journeys were under it's belt the average mpg climbed dramatically.
To drive, I actually got to like it in the end. It was very refined and the excellent leather steering wheel added to the strong feeling of quality throughout.
Bit dull, but that's to be expected.
What I couldn't forgive was the appalling lack of interior space. Dire compared to the Astra and ultimately the reason for its demise.
We should have had a larger car all along, so now we have an Insignia CDTi (160PS) as a new temporary hirecar whilst waiting for the company car situation to get sorted out.
Thoughts to follow, but I'm expecting it to be like a larger Astra...
