2016 Audi A3 – Review and Road Test

Audi’s player in the rapidly expanding entry-luxury segment is the $30,000 A3 sedan. Both sporty and welcoming the A3 is small but it’s also a solid value and a pleasure to live with. In this video KBB’s Micah Muzio gives a full review of the Audi A3 sedan.

annoying to see all of these american car fans going, “oh its just a 45k golf!!!! so ugly!!!!” this car is the exact opposite of those things. this car has great style, is cheap, and very luxurious. sorry if its not good enough for those driving around in solid gold lambo’s… 

Man from Nantucket says:

Funny you wearing that shirt while reviewing an automatic car lol

todd johnston says:

really? bitchin ’cause a backup camera doesn’t come standard. what a wuss
try using your mirrors and don’t be afraid to turn your head, its not like this is a big suv

Liam Beale says:

always find the BMW and Mercs a better choice, everytime i consider an Audi the look of it puts me off and when test driving i cant get away from the fact its just a VW trying to be too much like BMW. I wish theyd come up with their own / better style.

Pé Sịt says:

very funny…haha

Winsto25 says:

How much would this cost to insure vs say? a golf 1.8 SEL?

brad h says:

Looks like a Mazda3.

jlacciari15 says:

Anupam Ghosh says:

The Best 2015 Audi A3 Review (Y)

briandrake360 says:

Nice car with great interior features. However im not impressed with the style. A cla 250 has way more hp than the basic a3 170 vs 208. That’s a big difference. And the cla looks very identical to the nearly $70,000 cls.

Sohil Mathan Philip says:

Could KBB do a review of the Audi S3 please?

Chris Sorreda says:

BLOWS the CLA out of the water.

Brian Ross says:

I like the styling….I think they can do a little better on the base price….but I hate the little engine.

kopolojoyono says:

still hesitating, Audi A3 or BMW 228 ?

JustLucky says:

Audi stop copying,make something your own.

Edis Karalic says:

i liked instantly when he started showing and naming other cars in the same..yeah nice video

Nirvana Fan says:

Is this car or an upper-trim Nissan Altima better?

hazindu says:

If they had left us a hatch, I’d probably have one of those right now…

mark williams says:

Not even fog lights at this price level? Two words =rip off

SimpleGamer says:

Hatchback is the way to go!

stromada1 says:

My 1988 Audi 90 Sport is as good as this A3. And the Mercedes CLA for that matter.

Nbpoih Fiheqw says:

looks so good without a front license plate

crazyjack000 says:

The styling is so boring on the Audi A3. All the audis look uninspired and boring.

shrey says:

love the energy u guys get into ur videos….makes it less boring 🙂

Zoro says:

kids in Africa could’ve ate that car.

fahad waheed says:

color is good

Hudson T. says:

RIP TDI A3. You will be missed for a long time.

Favorite quote – “If you’re not backing up, the base car is lovely!”

Mike S says:

Have my 2015 A3 2.0T quattro now 3 months and 1500 miles later. This car is not what the reviews say and an extreme disappointment. 1. The wipers have been squeaking and fluttering since day 1. 4 trips to the dealership and now Audi of America involved in the case still not fixed. Now a new windshield is being put in. 2. Excessive road noise way noisier than even the cheapest 20k car. 3. The MMI system though excellent graphics is terrible at voice recognition. Gets it wrong 90% of the time. The thumbwheel and the hand writing feature is slow tedious and fussy. It takes sometimes 20 minutes to get a GPS entry right and when you have many daily appointments I give up and use my phone. So spending over 41k for all this technology is a waste when it rarely works. 4.. Fuel mileage is no where close to the EPA sticker and the 35mpg this review says. I get an average of 20.5 MPG combination and driving 55 on the highway got no higher than 27. I can get a corvette and do better. I regret getting this car and if the windshield doesn’t solve the wiper problem I plan to use the lemon law to get out of this car with no loss of money. The plus side is it is very fast and fun to drive. It handles well and the fit and finish is high quality for such a small little car. It is not a good car for long trips but for zipping around town its fantastic. Audi of America is working hard to solve the issue so they have not left me out in the cold yet. I’m waiting to see what happens next.

coach is here says:

this car rocks….i have the quattro loaded and it feels amazing

bruintoo says:

Filmed around LBC! Love it.

Raymond Adams says:

I have a 2016 A3 and it came standard with a back up camera with front and rear parking senors.

Luis Reyes says:

This car looks like a Toyota Corolla 2015 almost same engine

sssssneaker says:

THANK YOU for pronouncing ”diesel” like you’re supposed to! So refreshing to hear that from an American 🙂

Diana Liu says:

All  !!!:)

chancy319 says:

What a joke of a car. That screen looks like it’s made for ants. In fact, the car looks like it’s made for ants. Just save up and buy the A4 if you really want an Audi that bad.

RC says:

Nice looking car

Saeed Kazemi says:

Love your T-shirt, Micah! Where did you get that? 😀

Ahmed Chaudhary says:

gonna buy this in 1 month
