TrueDelta Reviews the Real Gas Mileage of the Audi A3 / S3

Audi A3 / S3 Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearComment
2016 For a car that can get from zero to 60 mph in under five seconds, the Audi S3 can be quite economical. The tested 2016's EPA ratings were 23 mpg city, 31 mpg highway. For 2017, the S3's ratings have fallen to 21/28 for no obvious reason. Maybe the updates pushed the car into a higher test weight class. I doubt the car's real-world fuel economy has changed. I observed 25 mpg in suburban driving (with a light foot) and nearly 30 mpg on the highway. Despite its more powerful engine, the Mercedes-AMG CLA45 scores even better than the 2017 S3 (if not quite as good as the 2016): 23/30. see full Audi A3 / S3 review

I am getting 30+ MPG in mixed 50/50 city/hwy driving. Hwy MPG if <70 MPH is easily 34 MPG+. If it had 7 gears, MPG at 70+ would be far better. see full Audi A3 / S3 review

I have calculated my gas using the onboard computer a few different times in mixed driving and am getting a consistent 25/26 mpg. That's without hard acceleration or driving above 70 MPH on the highway. see full Audi Q5 review

We initially went in looking for a commuter vehicle with High mpg... but the sport they had jumped out at us and we were on the hunt for one... in the wife's daily 45 mile drive to work she's averaging 20 mpg which is comparable to the Audi's 4 cylinder and my truck's 8 cylinder. see full Audi Q5 review

I worry about escalating gas prices here in CA, but I got about 23 mpg in Europe and hope for that here. Not great, but close to the turbo and if people push the turbo to make up for the lesser power, as I would, the mileage is a wash. see full Audi Q5 review
