Audi A3 2.0TFSI quattro

While the brand-new Volkswagen Golf debuts with significant aesthetic and mechanical changes, the Audi A3 continues along in pretty much the same clothes it's been wearing for years. However, the design is still clean, with the best interior in the premium compact class. Mechanically, the 2.0-litre direct-injection turbocharged four-cylinder is paired with Audi's excellent six-speed Direct Shift Gearbox and quattro all-wheel drive. Given Audi's introduction of AWD into modern rallying, there's no reason to expect that this A3 wouldn't handle the slippery stuff well. Downsides include a relatively high price tag ($36,900) and a long, long options list.Related Autos links:Research a new Audi A3Wild wintertime wrecks
