Audi A3Space-efficient cars are quite popular in many every time busy European cities, as these cars have a nimble nature with loads of versatility and fuel-efficiency. This kind of vehicles are also found in the US, but many luxury automakers do not like to offer these compact vehicles as many Americans relate compact vehicles with cheapness. However, there is one vehicle that has succeeded to revolt against tradition and this vehicle is the Audi A3.

Audi A3 was first introduced in Europe nearly a decade ago and it was in 2006 when the vehicle was brought to the US. The New A3 is an entry-level model for different markets in the North America. You will find it nearly 400lbs lighter and a foot shorter than an A42.0T Avant Quattro. It houses the same robust and powerful turbocharged engine as you have seen its big bro the A3 2.0T and it seems to run impressively with its 56 cubic feet maximum cargo capacity that it only 3cubes lesser than its big bro. Though it’s entry-level car of the company, the company hasn’t compromised on quality. The materials and design of cabin are according to those high-standards that Audi has settled for the industry. So, you would find everything in best fit and at the top of its capacity.

Some other European wagons also seem to creep into the US, so we can expect a tough competition for the Audi A3, but those who like to have elegance, engineering excellence and best performance from their vehicle seem to prefer the Audi A3.

At present, the Audi A3 can be seen in trim levels 2.0T and 3.2 Quattro, just slip inside and you will readily realize the use of nice materials in its cabin. There are real metal rings around its dash vents. Nice solid actions of the climate control and gear selector accent the audio controls. Keyless entry, 17” alloy wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control and a 10-speaker sound system are some standard features that you will find in the Audi A3. Moto-sports enthusiasts would definitely like its engine that has a broader power band with an energetic turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder.

No doubt, it’s a great pick for all those who want luxury and maximum performance in a compact vehicle.
