2018 Audi A3
Starting MSRP: $31,950
German luxury, practicality and performance are in full effect in the Audi A3. The entry-level version of the sedan, the Premium features a 186-horsepower 2.0-liter TSFI Ultra turbo 4-cylinder engine that delivers 26 mpg city / 35 mpg highway /29 mpg combined fuel economy in base front-drive trim. Jumping to the Quattro all-wheel-drive version bumps the price to $34,950, the horsepower to 220, and lowers fuel economy to 24 / 31 / 27. The big question . . . Is 34 horsepower, two additional drive wheels and the loss of a few mpgs worth $3,000?
