The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.3
7.0
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 Volvo S60 is a solid alternative to those tired of the German sedan game. It's not as flashy, but it is more sensibly priced.
