New A3 a Fine Addition To the Audi Line

Review

I have only owned the car for a week, and have put on about 300 miles, but it is solid, quiet and fast. Yes, it is rather expensive for its size, but the list of features is long and all are useable.

A3 is Impossible to lease in NY.

2006 Audi A3 2.0T 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)

Review

This car has lived up to all that has been written in car magazine and on the Web. The New 2.0T with the DSG is a terrific match. The car is very well balanced to drive in stop and go point & shoot city traffic and on the highway. It has great reflexes and a top notch Interior design.The biggest problem is that I see NONE on the road in NY. These cars at 30K lease out similar to a loaded A6. Audi has created the worst lease financing and residual #'s. It makes it impossible to lease and is surely sending folks elsewhere.

A lot of fun to drive and a good value for the money. I waited for this car to come to the US because it's one of a kind. My car has Cold weather, Premium Pkg., DSG, Open Sky and Lava Grey Paint.

2006 Moro Blue A3 sport/dsg

Review

Purchased this car after having a great ownership experience with a 2000 VW Jetta 1.8T. The A3 exceeds the Jetta in every respect, driving dynamics, fuel economy, road noise, safety, and ergonomics. I love the exterior styling - it seems aggressive and refined at the same time to me. The interior is also wonderful, with the added aluminum (including alloy dsg paddles) and contrasting stiching on the sport seats being nice touches. Only gripes after 5 days with the car are visibility behind the driver is a little constrained and I wish the sport package came with power front seats, though the manual seats in the A3 are great improvements from my jetta. This car is blast to drive!

The Ultimate Drive!

Review

I just picked up my new Audi A3 this week and I absolutely love it. I test drove many cars from 25k-35k looking for one that was actually fun to drive. The Sport package is well worth the cash. This baby hugs corners with ease. The OpenSky roof is great and opens the cabin up to the outside. Interior room is much better then that of the A4, due to the transversely mounted 2.0 T engine. With options my car came to $31850. Not bad for an car that it! The new DSD Auto is so smooth and is perfectly mated to the 2.0T engine. There is no torque steer present at any speed. The A3 is so much fun to drive. Do yourself a favor and go test drive one today!

Best and only small luxury hatchback

Great fuel economy, a huge upgrade in performance from last year's A4 base models. An automatic transmission that has better performance than manual and better fuel economy. That's quite a feat. Interior build is excellent. Great value too, no disadvantage vs. the A4 in space.

Nice, practical, Little, fun car.

2006 Audi A3 2.0T 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)

Review

It is a very nice, peppy car with a turbocharged four, and still gets a 25 mpg int the city and 32 on the highway. Acceleration a bit jerky at the beginning, but once you are in seconds gear, the power starts pouring out. I was very impressed with the DSG automatic transmission, the shifts were so fast I did even feel the car jolt as it did it. Nice exhaust note for a 4 cylinder, and its looks are somtimes missed in a bland color, and aren't truely appreciated until you see the car in the brillant red color, (my color). It truely brings out the coolness of the car.

A bit afraid

2006 Audi A3 2.0T 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)

Review

DSG is great - for those whole like to control the RPMs but are affraid of traffic and 3rd pedal...your reward is finally here. The 2.0 engine is much stronger and torque is higher as well. It is not as noisy as the old 1800 block. No turbo lag observed. Very strong brakes, thanks to oversized discs. Stiff, and has no "dipping" on sharper curves. Has a sporty feel for sure but is very easy to handle and navigate due to smaller size. Inerior: I am about 6'2 nd plenty of space (head, shoulder, leg). Rear space is fine too, great cargo for this size class.

Great car!

2006 Audi A3 2.0T 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)

Review

Just test drove the A3 6-sp manual and was pleasently surprised. The engine is great, inside is beautiful. Outside design is one of the best for the hatch. The car is a dream, smooth, quiet, fast, comfortable. It was 4 of us in the car, including a child seat in the back, behind the passenger, and enough room. With all of us and full tank, the car is accelerating in the 6th gear.
