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


Having been a BMW loyalist the last 8 years, buying a hatchback from Audi was a huge leap of faith. It was, however, the best decision I could have made. If you don't get silly with some of the options, this vehicle provides the optimum balance of performance, fuel economy, prestige, utility, and comfort. There are plenty of other cars that do each of these better, but the whole of the A3 is greater than the sum of its parts. Taking off ramps at 25+ MPH gives me the same giddiness as my last BMW did. It turns heads, and the interior is extremely well thought out. The trunk holds a lot of space, the mileage it gets is quite respectable, and it turns heads wherever I drive.

Best Features

The crash test safety ratings, S-Line Package suspension, Open Sky system, and torque in 3rd gear.

More standard features, or more features added to Premium & S-Line packages.
