2008 Audi A3 2.0T 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)

Review

After years with an A4 Avant, this has not been a step down at all! I figured I would be sacrificing space and luxury for MPG and the convenience of a compact, but not really the case; roomy interior and meticulous detail (I could live without the carbon fiber trim look, however). Way easier to park in the city, better mileage, and far quicker than the A4. Overall, if you don't need the Quattro I can't see a reason to get a new A4 Avant when this option is out there.

Favorite Features

DSG/S-tronic transmission w/paddles. Modification options: 200hp is plenty, but it's nice to have the option to add a chip, exhaust, cold air intake, and bigger turbo when the car gets tired.

Suggested Improvements

Stronger rear floor and seats that lie flatter. The rear floor may not hold up too well to dogs jumping in and out. Diesel option in the US? 50MPG would be nice!
