The Audi A3 got a light makeover inside and out last year; for 2010, the A3 receives another upgrade, with the previous S-line option package now standard and bringing a roof spoiler, reskinned bumpers, and brushed-aluminum trim. While the A3 is sort of a hatchback and sort of a wagon, its proportions are almost universally appealing. Even better, the interior of the A3 is one of Audi's best efforts. It's simple, flawless, and well crafted.
Last year, the A3 got a number of cosmetic changes. Car and Driver notes the instruments now have a "more generic white" lighting and have new buttons with "a more rounded-off look." Edmunds points out a new "sculpted chin spoiler" and "LED daytime running lights."
Overall, reviewers love the way the 2010 Audi A3 looks. Kelley Blue Book likes its "purposeful, sporty look," though it means "less interior cargo space." Audi's big grille "dominates the front end," says Cars.com.
Inside, Edmunds says the A3 has "few luxury touches" but calls it "classically German." Cars.com says that, especially when it's fitted with aluminum trim, the A3 "looks cheap."
