Best Hatchback Ever Build! — Performance of this car is absolutely stunning! The 1.4liter engine is a real surprise. Because of the turbo which helps providing 250nm at just 1.500rpm. Smoothly braking and handling. However, the sporty types have to choose another suspension. If you compare this car with other manufacturers (french or italian) you'll soon understand the true meaning of quality. Because of the sober appearance, this car is still modern. Summary: really good value for money and a true Audi!

Its A Fantastic Fun Car The 2.0 Litre Version Would Of Been Better For Me — I love my car its the best car i have ever owned, my next car will be an AUDI maybe A4 this time. The car has flappy paddle gearbox and is auto but is quick in sports mode and is superb to drive.

Audi 2008 A3 2.0t Basic Configuration — I got the "basic" A3 model, however it feels much more luxurious than any equivalent car for the same price. Performance wise, excellent acceleration, even in the top gear (I got the manual transmission, which I prefer) without hesitation. Driving in the highway, feels very firm and responsive. I had driven though pouring rain, with excellent control and traction. In a hot sunny day, the AC works nicely and quite. The sound system, of which I have also the basic one, is excellent. In combination with a very quite interior, you can really enjoy a classic music at 90 mph. Gas consumption is surprisely low in the highway. The driver seat is very comfortable, I am average size, height, weight, and feel very nice in the driving position even after 6 hours of highway. Perhaps the only item that I miss is the sunroof, otherwise the A3 2.0T is a very good and fun car to drive.

I Love To Drive This Car! — I love the way this car drives. It sticks to road under any condition, it's extremely comfortable, and it looks good, too. Transmission is exceptionally smooth. The BOSE Sound System sounds great. The open sky system is cool. I love the digital dash and rain-sensing wipers.

I Love My Car Just Not Great For Kids — Just need more room for car seat, stroller and its too low to the ground which bending in and out with a child is hard. I don't really have a lot of negatives to say. After test driving a bunch of other cars, nothing really compared to the Audi feel, drive, and style. It's a cut above the rest and I wish I could afford the q5 which is larger and more family friendly.

Perfect Family Runabout! — Car is great. Good lucks and excellent performance. PZEV engine doesn't hurt either, as long as I can keep my foot out of it. Has been zero cost to us so far, as we near the 6k mark. Hope it keeps up the good work!

DSG Auto = not fun, too damn small inside for tall folks!

09 A3q 2t — Car cuts power when trying to accelerate through turns, which is awkward. Probably fix that through the ECU or something. Feels good. Rather quick. Not comfortable in the back for tall folks. It's a fun car, but like all new cars, it's got that modern airbag-infested, numb, pillow feel to it. Car would be much more fun with a 6 speed instead of the fancy-pants auto that advertises that it can shift faster than whatever or whoever. Autos kill fun, period.

Audi A3 3.2 Dsg Quattro — With 3.2 liters, 24 valves, dual overhead camshafts (one for two rows of V, angle of 15 ° requires) with continuously variable timing (at the inlet and exhaust) and a collector of admission variable length, Audi had every chance of his side.

Fast And Small — Audi A3 1.8 T cabrio has 167 HP and that makes this car really fast in its class. 0-100km/h below 8 seconds and this is great. brakes are perfect and you feel you are safe to stop the car. Its too light and you can feel oversteering when you acceleratingif you are alone and no baggage in the car. I love exterrior design of A3 especially head lights. there is no hardtop to use for winter not just for A3 but also for A4.
