Overall:

I liked it when i saw it online but once i got to the dealership and saw it in person i loved it. The car was in great shape & condition and wouldnt compare it to any other model car. Audi has its own style and i like it

  • Front Seats

  • Family Car
  • Value
  • Would Buy
Looks/Style Ranked 2016 Acura ILX better.
"I will admit the ILX isnt the prettiest face but I would rather drive something that stands out a bit more than the completely anonymous design on the A3. When Audi and BMW and Mercedes start to differentiate their models again I will likely vote their way."
Front Seats Ranked 2016 Acura ILX better.
"The A3 seats felt way too firm for my liking. I dont like soft and cushy but on longer road trips I dont want a sore back like the A3 would do to me."
Back Seats Ranked 2016 Acura ILX better.
"There is ZERO space in the backseat of the A3. My ILX comfortably fits two adults without having to adjust my seating position."
Would Buy Ranked 2016 Acura ILX better.
"Considering I did buy the ILX over the A3 I think its safe to say its a better value by far."

2016 Audi A3 1.8T Premium Sedan FWD Review
dosleon says:
The Audi A3 SLine is a nice car, and very sporty. The look is great. However, at 2 different places the car was having issues and we learned it could have recurring electronic issues which were a red flag. The headroom is not very roomy for anyone 6ft or over. You cannot sit behind the driver/front seat passenger on a long road trip if youre tall. Kids only. The styling of this car is gorgeous but the issues we kept encountering were sort of scary. Buy a warranty. You can get more value for the money out there, so shop around. We ended up with a 2020 Kia Forte GT Line for our daughter and it came with a warranty and only a little more in price for brand new.

Back Seats Ranked 2020 Kia Forte GT Line FWD better.
"ROOM! The A3 has little to no room if youre over 5 feet tall. The Kia is much more roomy and can accommodate taller people."
Would Buy Ranked 2020 Kia Forte GT Line FWD better.
"Warranty, Styling, Safety Features, Electronic onboard features, ROOM, and reliability/crash ratings."
