The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Audi A3 and S3 put more pressure on "premium" small sedans, with real prestige in their badges and real potential in their spec sheets. The 2015 Lexus CT 200h is the industry's only small luxury hatchback that's also a hybrid, and it's considerably more fun than you might expect.
