The Audi A3 is proof that a luxury car doesn't have to be big. Although it’s based on the Volkswagen Golf, its design and interior finish stand out enough to give it a unique look. Available as a cabriolet, a sedan or a plug-in hybrid five-door hatchback (called the Sportback e-tron), the A3’s output ranges from 186 horsepower to nearly 400 horsepower (in the very sporty RS 3).
