Expert Quotes:

21 mpg city, 30 highway (manual 2.0T); 22/28 (DSG auto); 21/28 (Quattro); 30/42 (TDI)
U.S. EPA

During hard sport driving, the trip computer settled in with a 32 mpg average, but it shot way up into the mid-40s during steady freeway and highway driving.
CNET




The 2011 Audi A3 is a sporty hatchback, but Audi certainly hasn't forgotten how shoppers for this type of vehicle value fuel economy more than just the dent it might put in their budget. With either engine, fuel economy is better than average, but it's downright excellent with the TDI; EPA ratings are 30 mpg city, 42 highway with the S tronic automatic, and our editors have seen more than 45 mpg in long-haul interstate cruising and even low 30s in stop-and-go situations.

Standard 2.0T turbocharged gasoline versions of the A3 also get pretty impressive mileage, with figures of 21 or 22 in the city and 28 or 30 on the highway.

Conclusion

The 2011 Audi A3 TDI is a very green pick, with one of the highest fuel-economy ratings of any luxury-brand vehicle.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
