2011 Audi A3 TDI

Matt Tierney

This was the perfect little snowmobile for the Greatest Storm of the Century (that wasn't really). I hoped for Quattro when I went to the parking garage, but front-wheel drive proved to be just fine. I blazed a trail in the post-apocalyptic early morning with barely a squiggle. There were several uphill runs that proved to be no problem. The torque of the turbo-diesel added to the snow-going prowess, and on the evening's much clearer commute home, I had a better chance to enjoy the sportiness of the powertrain.

And did I mention how grateful I was for the thoughtful addition of the cold-weather package? Add a heated steering wheel, and I could take this weather all winter.

No it dont sell here because it COST to frickin much!!!for $33k it should come with all the options already!this car is way way way overpriced!
The A3 is a great car, and bigger in person than this article makes it out to be.I think it doesn't sell that well here because no one knows what it is.
