As Marty Padgett announced earlier this month, the 2010 Audi A3 TDI is slated to arrive in North America this November with a sticker price of $30,775. That's a fairly high sum for a fairly small car, but on this month's cross-European "Efficiency Challenge A to B", the diesel A3 has earned upwards of 94 mpg UK, which translates to a whopping 78.4 mpg US. Granted, the drivers have been hypermiling, and the engine in the test car is a 1.6-liter, not the 2.0-liter announced for America. Still, 78.4 mpg is nearly twice the A3's stated fuel efficiency of 42 mpg US, which is nothing to sneer at -- and it may make that sticker price easier to swallow. [AutocarUK]
