2011 Audi A3
2011 Audi A3
If you are a fan of the Audi brand and are looking to grab a new model, you can get into this entry level Audi for less than $30,000. This crossover style hatchback is only offered in the 5 door wagon model. You will immediately notice the slick styling and high end features that you would only expect from a mid-level vehicle. This vehicle is based on the VW Golf and the A3 Audi models and offers a very fuel efficient turbocharged 4-cylender engine that will get upward of 40 MPG on the highway and slightly lower in town.

The exterior style has not changes much since its big overhaul in 2008, but the inside has seen some small cosmetic changes. Unfortunately due to the frame and body style the interior does have something to be desired when it comes to storage space and leg room.

The A3 is of course the A4's little brother and if you add on all the extra features and options you can push it up into the A4 price range. Consumers wanting a little more room and luxury will jump for the A4, but those working on a budget will be glad with the value of the A3.

Having shown off the concept version of the A3 sedan at this year’s Geneva Motor Show, Audi will likely debut the production version of that car at next year’s show, according to German enthusiast magazine Auto Motor und Sport. The Audi A3 will receive new styling in its next generation, and will also add more body styles for the European market. Also planned for the next-gen car are improvements in weight reduction, fuel economy, and multimedia features. Similar changes will also take place on the facelifted A4, which Auto Motor und Sport says will arrive by spring 2012 in Europe.

2013 Audi A3 Three Quarters Crop
Our cohorts at Motor Trend have spied a next-generation Audi A3 testing in Europe. Although camouflaged, we can see the front end echoes the corporate design language of Audi's current range. There’s not a whole lot we can glean from this image, but tomorrow’s A3 looks like it will bring more of the same to the entry-level luxury compact table.
