If you've seen the quintet of other Audi A3 variants, you already have a solid idea of what you'll see when the 2015 A3 Sportback TDI hits U.S. dealerships in June. We confirmed the family resemblance this week when we got an early peek at the new A3 TDI at the 2014 New York International Auto Show.

While its design is similar to the rest of the A3 lineup, the hatchback body style and resulting raised roof should improve headroom. The Sportback carries on the interior family tradition, as well, with a nice array of standard features for its entry-level price.

I'm feeling the clash between the A3 and the CLA already.

One question for Audi: why is the interior so blah? The CLA at least has a nice slab of wood on the dashboard...

Joe: I wish I had a different answer than the A3 is just a WV golf with different design language but that about sums it up apart from the lack of real leather on VW's offerings.

That's right, you're looking at a gussied up vw rabbit\golf at a mercedes price. CLA is higher quality and more fun to drive too. For the same price or possibly lower, the mercedes is a slam dunk.

Or maybe the CLA is just an over priced base entry level car with plenty of leatherette and fake wood. Both models mentioned MB and Audi are nothing but entry models (not luxury) made by manes that built luxury cars

You are entitled to your opinion, but in my opinion the difference between cla and a3 is that the benz is not a version of a cheaper car. It is a mercedes from the word go, a car that only uses real wood on the interior. It would be unreasonable to expect a car based on the much cheaper golf to be as good as the cla. The reviews say audi made a nice riding car on the golf platform, but one that isn't fun to drive. CLA is fun to drive and will undoubtedly be more satisfying to own and will hold together longer. Come on wain, it's a mercedes.
