The compact A3 is still available in sedan and cabriolet variants, with front- or all-wheel drive, not to mention high-performance S3 and RS 3 models that generate 288 and 394 horsepower, respectively. A new generation is coming, though it had yet to make its official debut when we wrote these lines. Styling will evolve to match the look of recent Audi products, while the more refined and more technologically advanced cockpit will take a page from the new Q3.
- Excellent fit and finish
- Limited rear-seat room
