A new A3 hatch has landed in Europe—a sedan will make its way here for 2014—and the related VW GTI offers much of the current car’s goodness at a lower price, but this former 10Best-winning Audi remains an attractive and practical option. An available diesel should satisfy any efficiency cravings.
With an athletic suspension, accurate steering, and precision mechanicals are the calling cards of this small Audi.
It’s well-built, all-weather friendly, fun to drive, and efficient.
