Expert Quotes:

an interior lacking in Audi's elegant signature design
Motor Trend

The cabin...really was classic Audi, with lots of high-quality pieces, all of which were black or aluminum.
Winding Road

appears larger than a sporty hatchback, but smaller than a typical wagon
Edmunds

looks right years after you've finished college
MSN Autos


The A3 is sort of a hatchback and sort of a wagon, but its proportions are almost universally appealing; nearly everyone seems to like the look of the A3 design, which is at once inoffensive yet fancier than other hatch designs on the market, like the Mazda3 or Subaru WRX.

Last year, the Audi A3 got a somewhat sportier, more aggressive look as the elements of the former S-line package were made standard; the roof spoiler, reskinned bumpers, and brushed aluminum trim that were part of that upgrade give the A3 a more upscale look, overall.

The A3 has one of the best interiors that Audi currently makes: ergonomically simple, flawless, and well crafted. Some might say that it's starting to look a bit dated, but versus any of the competitive set at the low end of its price range—well under $30k—the A3's interior looks far more upscale and nuanced in design.

Conclusion

The 2011 Audi A3 has a beautiful exterior by all accounts, while its interior is impressive when you put it in perspective.

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.
