The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.3
5.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Audi A3 comes well-equipped and is a pleasant, polished entry-level sedan worthy of serious consideration. The 2017 Buick Verano delivers quiet and comfort but the most appealing engine, the 2.0-liter turbo, doesn't return for the final run. Buyers should look for deals on this lame-duck car.
