Audi A3 Overview
Audi's A3 is a compelling entry-level luxury car, although it lacks some important features for its price. Based on the Volkswagen Golf, it's solid, quiet, and well-assembled, with a drum-tight body structure. The firm and controlled ride makes it enjoyable to drive. Base front-wheel-drive models come with a 1.8-liter engine, which delivered a respectable 27-mpg in our tests. All-wheel-drive cars have a stronger but less efficient 2.0-liter engine. Major gripes include complicated controls and a very tight rear seat. It's easy to hit the $40,000 mark with a few options. A sporty S3 with a 292-hp, 2.0-liter turbo; a 2.0-liter diesel; and a convertible have been added. A FWD hatchback will be available with diesel and hybrid powertrains in 2015.
