2011 Audi A3 Styling

8.0
On Styling
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.

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