The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 Audi A3 is stylish, refined, and versatile—and nearly as good for the city as for the highway. The 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX and WRX STI are fast, fun cars to drive in any situation, and they're comfortable, safe, and practical enough for small-family use; poor fuel economy and a lack of automatic transmissions limit its appeal, though.
