2015 Audi A3: Fold-Flat Rear Seats Yield Large Cargo Area

August 10, 2015

2015 Audi A3

I put a bike in our 2015 Audi A3 over the weekend (not pictured). I was pleasantly surprised by the cargo space with the seats folded flat. With its front wheel removed, the entire bike (a large 29-inch wheeled mountain bike) fit without rubbing on the front seats. I've put the same bike in certain compact hatchbacks (I'm looking at you Ford Focus) and couldn't say the same.

2015 Audi A3: Blame the Small Trunk on Quattro

You might have second thoughts about the size of the trunk in the 2015 Audi A3 sedan if you just dwell on the rated capacity. As Scott Oldham recently pointed out, 10.0 cubic feet is not a terribly impressive figure. Interestingly, that number goes with the 2.0T version, which is what we have.

Audi says the 1.8T can hold a more respectable 12.3 cubic feet in its trunk. Same goes for the TDI. Why the difference?

2015 Audi A3: Hauls Four Slot Mags

June 3, 2015

This set of Craigslist slot mags have been collecting dust in the corner of my garage for about seven years. I bought them for $100 from an old guy in the San Fernando Valley who was using them as lawn art, it seemed, since the early 1980s. I knew they would fit both my '55 Chevy and my '76 Pontiac Trans Am (and now my more recently acquired '69 Camaro) but I didn't really have a plan. I just knew I had to have them.

Well, it's about time I did something with them. But first, they had to go to the polisher. I was sure our long-term 2015 Audi A3 would get the job done, but I figured I'd have to utilize the sedan's 60/40 split-folding rear seat.

2015 Audi A3: Road Trip to Indian Wells

March 26, 2015

Recently, a few of us in the office decided to attend the 2015 BNP Paribas tennis tournament in Indian Wells, Calif. Adjacent to Palm Springs, Indian Wells is about 140 miles from our offices in Santa Monica. This tennis tournament, though not as significant as grand slam events like Wimbledon or the U.S. Open, is still a major tournament with all the top players. I also noticed that Audi was a major sponsor of the tournament this year. Our long-term 2015 Audi A3 seemed like a natural fit to drive to the event.
