The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Audi A3 is more than a spruced-up VW hatchback, thanks to the fabulous interior, S-tronic transmission, and V-6 bark. The 2009 Chevrolet HHR is a great urban runabout for small-business owners with frequent cargo hauls. More space plus the MINI Cooper’s same extroverted personality make the 2009 MINI Cooper Clubman desirable.
