Audi A3

The Audi A3 is the first compact sedan for the US market for the German manufacturer. With a range of trim levels starting at $30,900 for the base 1.8 Premium to $43,050 for the 2.0 Prestige model, you can be sure that if you are looking for a luxury compact, you can find it somewhere in the A3 range. Inside the A3 sports Audi’s new interior design language with an updated dashboard, funky-yet-stylish air vents, and a new media interface control for the upper level models. The Audi A3 competes against other luxury compacts such as the Mercedes CLA-Class, Buick Verano, and BMW 2 Series.

Audi RS3
Only a select few vehicles get the full Audi RS treatment. Even less vehicles that receive the RS treatment manage to make their way stateside. The RS3 is noticeably different than it's A3 little brother thanks to an aggressive body kit, revised LED headlights and OLED taillights. Packing a 2.5L five-cylinder engine developing 400-hp, the RS3 is capable of sprinting to sixty miles per hour is as little as 3.5 seconds. Thanks to a new version of Audi's Quattro AWD system and the nearly square tire layout, the TT RS's grip is more than formidable on the track. The RS3 is available in the US in limited numbers so get one while you still have a chance.
