The A3 distinguishes itself as a great-handling, attractive sedan with an upscale interior and luxury features not generally expected in this segment.
A 170-hp 1.8-liter turbo four with front-wheel drive and a six-speed auto are standard; a manual is not offered. Optional is a 220-hp 2.0-liter four with a six-speed auto and Quattro all-wheel drive. Steering is precise and the ride is composed; fit and finish are superb. If you need more power, an S3 will be available later this year.
HIGHS AND LOWS of the Audi A3
Highs: Roomy for its size, sophisticated chassis, fun to drive, premium fit and finish.
