The Audi A3 is a high-quality car that offers premium handling and safety, roominess and practicality, yet is still easy to park and, with either engine, is easy on fuel. Five-door hatchbacks are very popular in Europe, but much less so in America. Those who are comfortable with its styling should find happiness in the Audi A3 Sportback. With its combination of performance, capabilities, style, quality of fit and finish, luxury, ride, handling and fuel efficiency, it is a keeper.
