    King Of Hot Hatch's — The A3 DSG Turbo 2.0L is simply amazing, the transmission is extremely accurate and fast, making it very fun to drive and the fuel efficiency isn't as bad eather thanks to the "Direct Fuel Inyection" technology. The 197 hp turbo motor is very impressive, it keeps pushingo forward even in sixth gear at full speed. Also another of the great aspects of the Audi A3 is it's brakes, not that smoosth not tha hard and you always keep control of the car even in panic braking without even needing to hold the steering wheel. It's a very fun car too drive and has plenty of space compare to a Mini Cooper. The BOSE sound quality is great and it comes ipod ready so you can listen too your musci right away. The only aspect that could be critizied is the security theme, cause even though it cas plenty of technology it doesn't come with ESP (I had too ask for it as an optional package) and some other electronci systems that we can see in the Golf Mark IV, also it only has 4 airbargs instead of 6 like all the ohter cars in same segment.

    Pros: Power, Handling, Sound and Overall Quality

    Cons: Security systems (Active and Passive) could be better

    Feels Like Driving A Tiny Tank That Can Do 0-60 In 6.4 Seconds. — This car is solid, fast, fun to drive, loves the curves, and the DSG can shift gears in 8 milliseconds. Plus a 207 HP engine in a car that only weighs 3000 lbs. is fun.

    Pros: Fast, great suspension, looks good, fun

    Cons: No XM radio option, I wish it had HIDs, I wish the 2.0T had a Quattro option
