Family Reviews the 2012 Audi A3 TDI


Now that Family contributor Sara Lacey’s children are older, she can easily fit them into smaller cars. She was delighted to zip around with her family of four in the 2012 Audi A3 TDI. With its turbodiesel engine, this five-seat hatchback made errand running fun. The A3’s cargo area was easy to access — even for Sara’s 10-year-old son, who could load his hockey bag in and out of the back and even reach the liftgate when open.

2012 Audi A3 TDI Review



I don't think this car does Audi any favors. It's a dated design for one thing, which I know doesn't make a car "bad", but it looks very old compared to every other model. Since this car has come out the A4 has been redesigned 3 times. It's also very cheap on the inside and only a few thousand less than an A4 Avant.


DOn't want a stinkin little audi diesel.


I'll wait for the inevitable and imminent redesign. This seems a bit to expensive for a vw golf dressed up as an audi. Even the base price is 6k more for leather and a badge.
