TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Audi A3 wears its age well, and remains a sporty, versatile choice for compact hatchback buyers who can afford a little luxury. The 2013 Hyundai Veloster dances the line between sporty coupe and sports car with features, fuel economy, impressive handling, and newfound turbo power. The 2013 Volvo C30 still has a stunning design, inside and out, but its performance and practicality can easily be beat.
