What are people saying about the A3

"The 2010 Audi A3 TDI's main virtue is its fuel economy, which it gets because of its diesel engine."

"Had plenty of boost to pass other cars or climb hills. In urban driving it ran smooth, although we could have hoped for a little more initial boost for quick merges and the like."
