The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.3
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Audi A3 comes well-equipped and is a pleasant, polished entry-level sedan worthy of serious consideration. It may be BMW's entry-level model, but the 2-Series provides the sort of driving excitement the brand seems to have otherwise forgotten about.
