The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
8.4
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. A big-bodied extrovert, the 2010 MINI Cooper Clubman's the most desirable MINI for anyone beyond their single stage of life.
