Car and Driver

The 2010 Audi A3 comes quite well-equipped, with plenty of opportunities for customization and optional packages. But beware, prices can quickly veer toward $40,000, and Bluetooth, which is now desired by pretty much every buyer in the A3’s target demographic, is optional. Other major options include a navigation system, LED running lamps, and adaptive xenon headlamps. lists "dual-exhaust outlets" and "alloy wheels" with "17-inch tires" as attractive standard features. Kelley Blue Book tracks singular additions, such as "SIRIUS Satellite Radio, 18-inch alloy wheels," and "Bose audio."

For 2010, all the contents of what was formerly the S-line package are now standard on the A3. That includes, according to Edmunds, a "sport-tuned suspension, foglamps, sport seats with leather upholstery, aluminum interior trim, unique front and rear fascias and a roof spoiler."

Edmunds says of the A3's interior “switches and dials on the center console are within easy reach and simple to operate, but we were not fans of the driver-side door controls.” likes the A3 Audi’s standard "dual-zone automatic climate control" and "'OpenSky' glass sunroof" that "includes separate blinds to keep the interior from overheating and to guard against the sun's glare." Kelley Blue Book notes the 140-watt stereo with 10 speakers and pre-wired satellite radio preparation for Sirius Satellite Radio.

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.
