Audi A3 2.0 TSFI

-

Base price: $36,400 As tested: $42,850 Audi says it’s time to take the compact Euro premium sedan seriously, and they make an excellent case with this competent offering. An overarchin­g sense of quality halos the A3.

We like: The 220 horsepower turbo four is strong and frugal, and the ride is smooth.

We’d like: A roomier back seat. Engine: 2.0-litre turbocharg­ed 4-cylinder

Power/torque: 220 hp/ 258 lb-ft Fuel consumptio­n (premium) L/100 km: 9.8 city, 7.2 hwy. What’s best: Premium quality, fine

dynamics. What’s worst: Tight back seat.

Must have options: The $1,500 Premium Package.

Value for money: Options add up.
