For an entry-level German sedan, the A3 is a strong contender

Verdict – The Audi A3 is a good buy if you’re a small family or just a couple and want a premium car that’s fun to drive and has decent space. The sedan is now loaded with a lot more technology and there doesn’t seem to be anything that could be flawed in the vehicle. The Audi A3, with this update, gets some much-needed additions and changes and is quite nice as a package while it also gets you a lot of snob value with the four-ringed badge.
